Florence Pugh has called out body shamers for making "vulgar" comments about her figure.

The Little Women actress stepped out in a sheer fuchsia dress with a tulle neckline and flowing skirt to the Valentino couture show in Rome, Italy on Friday night.

But while Florence was expecting criticism for attending the fashion show in a gown in which she didn't cover her nipples, the star was stunned by some of the sexist statements people made about her body.

"I was excited to wear it, not a wink of me was nervous. I wasn't before, during or even now after," she began in an Instagram post. "What's been interesting to watch and witness is just how easy it is for men to totally destroy a woman's body, publicly, proudly, for everyone to see. You even do it with your job titles and work emails in your bio? It isn't the first time and certainly won't be the last time a woman will hear what's wrong with her body by a crowd of strangers, what's worrying is just how vulgar some of you men can be."

Florence went on to share that she has accepted the "intricacies" of her body and breast size.

"So many of you wanted to aggressively let me know how disappointed you were by my 'tiny tits', or how I should be embarrassed by being so 'flat chested'. I've lived in my body for a long time. I'm fully aware of my breast size and am not scared of it. What's more concerning is.... Why are you so scared of breasts? Small? Large? Left? Right? Only one? Maybe none?

What. Is. So. Terrifying," the 26-year-old questioned. "It makes me wonder what happened to you to be so content on being so loudly upset by the size of my boobs and body?"

To conclude her post, English star Florence noted that she has made it her mission to reject any person who expects her to "morph into an opinion of what's hot or sexually attractive" and urges online trolls to "grow up" and "respect people".
