Florence Pugh Debuts a Shaved Head at the 2023 Met Gala

The actress showed off her buzzed 'do in a wildly elegant look at this year's star-studded celebration of fashion.

Buzzed and beautiful! Florence Pugh debuted her new short 'do at this year's Met Gala, and she couldn't have looked more elegant.

The Midsommar star stunned in a cream-colored Valentino gown with a wildly long train that trailed behind her as she stunned at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday for the star-studded celebration of fashion.

However, the chic and flowing gown couldn't steal the spotlight from her striking new hairstyle.

Pugh drew attention to her buzzed look with an ornate, black feathered Valentino headpiece that towered over her and served as a perfect compliment to the brilliantly off-white gown.

Pugh -- who complimented the look with Tiffany & Co. jewelry -- also walked the carpet alongside Italian fashion designer and Valentino creative director Pier Paolo Piccioli.

At one point in the evening, Pugh appeared to struggle momentarily with the elaborate headpiece, but managed to keep her look together and laughed at the situation inside the Met.

Ahead of the event, the actress prepped her skin with a facial from Facegym.

The theme of this year's Met Gala is "Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty" and celebrates the full work and life of the late designer. The exhibition -- which opens to the public on May 5 and closes July 16 -- features 150 of Lagerfeld's designs from Chanel, Balmain, Patou, Fendi, Chloe as well as his own personal line and are accompanied by his sketches.

After the theme was announced in September, it sparked backlash due to Lagerfeld's alleged past problematic comments, including in 2009 that "no one wants to see round women." In 2018, he also said he was "fed up" with the #MeToo movement.

The dress code this year is "in honor of Karl" and the co-chairs for the spring fashion event are Michaela Coel, Penélope Cruz, Dua Lipa, tennis pro Roger Federer, and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. The annual gala is a fundraiser for New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art.
