BAFTAs 2020: Florence Pugh in Dries Van Noten

Posted on February 03, 2020

Darlings, with regards to Miss Florence’s style preferences, we feel we have gathered enough information through this, her first major awards season, to allow us to deploy a signature phrase from one of the patron saints of this blog, one Miss Nina Garcia:


We question her taste level.

Look, we give her all the credit in the world for choosing a designer like Dries Van Noten, but you have to understand when you make a choice like that how ill-suited it is for the average red carpet. This is extremely editorial in nature, and if you’re going to go there, we think the styling has to rise to the occasion. The tight hair and platform ankle straps bring the whole thing way down. To be fair, we really don’t think there’s any styling choice that would make this look more appropriate for her. It just doesn’t suit her or the venue.

And let’s face it, it looks like a Barbie dress sewn by a five-year-old.
