Florence Pugh made her acting debut in 2014. But has been bowling us over with back-to-back mindblowing performances. From her leading role in Lady Macbeth to the goosebump-inducing girl in Midsommar, Pugh has always immersed herself in her roles.
Her appearance in the Met Gala 2023 once again proved her dedication to her career.
The red carpet event that took place on May 1 saw the actress walking down in a daring Valentino dress and a…shaved head?
Yes, you read it right; Florence Pugh turned heads for her shaved head as much for her gorgeous outfit. Why did the talented actress decide to chop it all off? Turns out, her upcoming movie, Dune needs her to have a certain hairstyle, and Pugh is all for going au naturel.
Pugh’s buzzed hair and the giant black feathered headpiece made quite a statement at the Met Gala 2023 event. Last week, the Midsommar gal teased her Met Gala look saying, “It’s big, but we like big, don’t we?” She, in fact, did deliver on her promise with her bold decision.
Florence stayed faithful to Valentino, being their brand ambassador, and wore a cut-out black and white dress.
The actress then revealed that she had her head shaven for a month. “It was required for the job that I happily wanted to do and I thought what is the best way to release it to the world than at the Met.”
She also confessed, “I’ve been keeping it under wraps for about three weeks now.”
Although with the paparazzi and inquisitive fans always swarming celebs, it is very hard to keep anything a secret. In fact, her change in hairstyle was also somewhat anticipated.
Pugh made an appearance at the grand reopening of Tiffany & Co.’s flagship store in New York, and she wore a short wig with bangs. Rumors were soon circulating regarding her hair and a buzzcut, and it looks like fans weren’t very far off.
The movie in question because of which Pugh shaved her hair is ‘We Live in Time’ directed by John Crowley. Its plot has been kept under wraps, but seeing why Pugh’s character has this hairstyle will be interesting.
So, what do you think of Pugh’s brave decision? Did this prove how much she adores her career? Tell us about all your conspiracy theories regarding her next movie.
