Florence Pugh made a sexy entrance on the red carpet in 2023 met gala in NYC Monday night — and she debuted a stunning new look with a shaved head.
The 27-year-old actress made sure all eyes were on her in a tall, bold wired black hat featuring feather detailing, showcasing her new buzz cut.
She wore a white silk wedding-inspired starry evening gown that dangled behind her as she climbed the famous staircase at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Darling star’s backless gown flaunted a long black ribbon that was tied in an elegant bow around her busty bust.

Florence wore dark, shaved hair for the star-studded evening out while rocking the red carpet.
The actress was joined on the carpet by Valentino designer Pier Paolo Piccioli who looked dapper in a black suit that he teamed with white trainers and sunglasses.
Fashion’s biggest night is upon us once again, with a slew of stars getting ready to walk the famous staircase in a matter of hours.
The 2023 Met Gala will return to New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday night, with everyone from Kim Kardashian to Paris Hilton set to attend the annual fundraising event.
Since 1948, stars have climbed the majestic ladder to a very exclusive party where no selfies are allowed.
In keeping with tradition, the event will take place on the first Monday in May. It is scheduled to start at 6:30 PM EST on May 1, 2023.
Fans can watch the action in real time via a live stream on Vogue.
The theme for this year’s ball is Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. The late German designer was Chanel’s longtime creative director. He passed away at the age of 85 in 2019.
His beloved cat, Choupette, has been invited to the festivities.
The decision to honor Carl has generated controversy due to the many offensive statements he has made over the years, from criticizing the #MeToo movement to opposing same-sex marriage.
I’m against it for a very simple reason: In the ’60s, they all said we had the right to be different. And now, all of a sudden, they want a bourgeois life,” he told an MP on same-sex marriage.
“It’s hard to imagine one Pope at work and the other at home with the child. How would that be for the child? I don’t know. I see more lesbians married with children than I see boys married with children. I also believe in the mother-child relationship more than I believe in the father-child relationship.” And the child.
While he finally showed his support for same-sex marriage at Chanel’s Spring 2013 Haute Couture show, he said he was still “less keen” on same-sex couples who adopt children, according to the Associated Press.
Along with Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, who directs and hosts the annual event, Penelope Cruz, Dua Lipa, Michaela Cowell, and Roger Federer will also host the 2023 MET Gala.
While the show may be known for its glamorous, glamorous red carpet looks — with details of what happens inside often kept a mystery — it’s also a fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
Last year, the 2022 MET Gala alone raked in a grand total of $17.4 million, according to a Billboard report.
This year, the admission price was raised from $30,000 to $50,000, according to Page Six.
Even if you have the funds, that doesn’t guarantee you’ll get into the party.
Each guest must be invited, and there is a waiting list for the coveted golden ticket.
And status matters, according to The New York Times, which means the hottest stars stand a chance of getting invited.
Paris Hilton is among the big names attending what will be her first ever Met Gala.
Meanwhile, frequent attendee Blake Lively announced that she would not be attending the party.
“I’ll be watching,” she said, according to People.
Other celebrities in attendance included Elle Fanning, Kim Kardashian, and La La Anthony.
For Wintour’s role in the party, the editor-in-chief of Vogue organizes the party and oversees the guest list and even the roster.
She has served as chair of the Met Gala since 1994 and continues to serve Dimensions at every event.
