On Sunday night, Florence Pugh wore a dramatic bright orange gown by Nina Ricci to the 76th EE British Academy Film Awards, hosted by actor Richard E. Grant at the Royal Festival Hall. The Dune 2 actress looked like a glamorous sculpture on the red carpet, but she changed into a Barbie pink minidress for the afterparty.
The sexy Valentino number was covered in pink sequins, with a hem that ended high up Pugh’s legs. The low cut neckline was made from silver sequins, with a bow outlining her bust. She wore it with metallic silver platform Mary Jane heels and carried a small silver purse on a long chain. Around her wrist was a matching bracelet and she appeared to be wearing the same diamond strand around her neck as she did earlier in the night.
The first party she attended post-BAFTAs was the 2023 British Vogue And Tiffany & Co. Celebrate Fashion And Film Party, at Annabel’s, but the Daily Mail reports that the Don’t Worry Darling star then headed to Chiltearn Firehouse for the Netflix afterparty and was not seen returning to her hotel until 8:45 AM the next morning.
It’s seems like it was quite a night for celebrity parties.
Pugh appeared to be out on the town on her own, but she was recently romantically linked to photographer Charlie Gooch. The pair were photographed in London on Valentine’s Day strolling hand-in-hand. Pugh confirmed in August of 2022 that she and long-term boyfriend Zach Braff has broken up that year.
“We’ve been trying to do this separation without the world knowing, because it’s been a relationship that everybody has an opinion on,” she told Harper’s BAZAAR at the time. “We just felt something like this would really do us the benefit of not having millions of people telling us how happy they are that we’re not together. So we’ve done that.”
