Florence Pugh goes braless in a figure-hugging white gown at the Dune premiere in Mexico after defending her decision to show off her nipples
The 28-year-old British actress was a vision of beauty as she hit the red carpet in a figure-hugging white gown that featured ruched detailing on the skirt.
Florence – who plays Princess Irulan, the daughter of the Emperor – in the upcoming movie, dared to go braless beneath the fitted frock as she posed up a storm on the red carpet.
Her peroxide blonde locks were clip back and gelled into a funky fauxhawk, showcasing a pair of silver chandelier earrings that complemented her myriad of rings.
It’s the latest daring look Florence has sported on a red carpet after highlighting the hypocrisy of telling women to cover their chests when men can go shirtless.

In July last year, Florence was cruelly trolled for wearing a sheer gown at the Valentino fashion show in Rome.
At the time, she hit back at the comments she received from ‘vulgar’ men as well as those who chose to ‘publicly destroy a woman’s body’ with their remarks.
She wrote in an impassioned post on Instagram: ‘What’s been interesting to watch and witness is just how easy it is for men to totally destroy a woman’s body, publicly, proudly, for everyone to see.
‘So many of you wanted to aggressively let me know how disappointed you were by my ‘tiny t**s’, or how I should be embarrassed by being so ‘flat chested’.
‘I’ve lived in my body for a long time. I’m fully aware of my breast size and am not scared of it.’
The Don’t Worry Darling star started her post by telling fans she knew the dress would provoke a reaction, but she was ‘excited’ to wear the gown.
Speaking to ELLE about the furore, Florence shared her candid reaction to others who scrutinise her appearance.
She said: ‘When everything went down with the Valentino pink dress a year ago, my nipples were on display through a piece of fabric, and it really wound people up.
‘It’s the freedom that people are scared of; the fact I’m comfortable and happy. Keeping women down by commenting on their bodies has worked for a very long time. I think we’re in this swing now where lots of people are saying, ‘I don’t give a s**t.’
‘Unfortunately, we’ve become so terrified of the human body that we can’t even look at my two little cute nipples behind fabric in a way that isn’t sexual.
‘We need to keep reminding everybody that there is more than one reason for women’s bodies [to exist].’
