Florence Pugh is no stranger to making a red carpet style statement, but her scarlet red Robert Wun cowboy hat and veil paired with coordinating peplum dress might just be her most outlandish look to date.
The 27-year-old actress attended the London Critics' Circle Film Awards at The May Fair Hotel in London on Sunday 5 February. She was awarded the British/Irish Actress Of The Year prize for her body of work in films such as Don’t Worry Darling, The Wonder, Puss In Boots and The Last Wish.

Florence wore an iconic ensemble, hailing from Robert Wun’s 2023 couture collection. “Ultimately, the collection is not about fear, it is about the desire to conquer fear,” Wun explained of his most recent designs “The will to embrace it [fear] and turn it into something empowering and beautiful.”
Although clearly her headgear was the most eye-catching element of the outfit (giving us all nostalgia for Pharrell’s Viviene Westwood 'Buffalo hat' era) we couldn’t help but notice the intricately pleated peplum hem of her dress. The trend, which has been dormant since the early 2010s looks prime to make a serious comeback. Search statistics at the time revealed that the term 'peplum dress' was 2012’s most popular fashion search term, closely followed by onesies and leather shorts. Glamour magazine called it "The silhouette of Spring 2012!"

If this isn't confirmation it's back, it’s at least proof that our love affair with Florence Pugh’s style is going nowhere.
