British Independent Film Awards 2022: Florence Pugh looks glam at bash

Florence Pugh puts that Don’t Worry Darling debacle behind her as she makes a glittering red carpet appearance at the star-studded 25th annual British Independent Film Awards alongside elegant Jenna Coleman and Daisy Edgar-Jones

  • The actress wore an elegant pink dress with a low cut neckline, with the screen star putting on an animated display as she whipped the expansive detached mesh train to match her gown 
  • It was a more relaxed affair than her stilted appearance at the Venice Film Festival, where off-camera disputes on the set of Don’t Worry Darling clouded its premiere in the historic Italian city
  • She was joined by fellow actress Jenna Coleman, who opted for an off-the-shoulder semi-sheer black floor-length dress, and screen star Daisy Edgar-Jones, who looked chic in a black trouser suit

Florence Pugh cut a very glamorous figure as she joined a host of stars on the red carpet ahead of the 25th British Independent Film Awards at Old Billingsgate in London on Sunday.

The actress, 26, wore an elegant pink dress with a low cut neckline, with the screen star putting on an animated display as she whipped the expansive detached mesh train to match her gown up into the air while posing on arrival.

It was a notably more relaxed affair than her stilted appearance at the Venice Film Festival in September, where reported off-camera disputes with actress and director Olivia Wilde on the set of Don’t Worry Darling clouded its premiere in the historic Italian city.  

She was joined by fellow actress Jenna Coleman, 36, who opted for an off-the-shoulder semi-sheer black floor-length dress, and screen star Daisy Edgar-Jones, 24, who looked chic in a black trouser suit adorned with glistening silver sequins.
