Beauty is all about taking risks, and Florence Pugh just debuted a big one at the 2023 Met Gala. The actor walked the red carpet on 1 May with a completely shaved head, wearing a towering crown complete with gold hardware and tall black feathers. The angular headpiece dipped down Pugh's forehead, creating the illusion of a widow's peak, but upon closer inspection, it was clear that she had chopped her previous blonde bob, leaving a brunette buzz cut behind.
Fans speculated Pugh was harbouring her new look long before the Met Gala. She confirmed this to be true on the red carpet, saying that she originally shaved her hair for the upcoming film "We Live in Time." Up until this moment, Pugh kept the look hidden under wigs and other accessories. But now, she's letting the buzz cut shine in all its glory, wearing a matching black-and-white Valentino gown to complement her feathered crown.
In the days leading up to the big reveal, Pugh had been changing her hair up quite a bit, wearing a blonde lob she said was inspired by "Scarface," and cutting her hair short for "A Good Person." She now joins stars like Doja Cat, who shaved her head and eyebrows on Instagram Live back in August 2022, and Dixie D'Amelio, who also revealed her buzz cut on the red carpet.
