Pugh donned a Valentino gown that oozed girly sophistication in Rome at their haute couture fashion show on Friday. The dress was gathered with sheer material, which meant her chest was visible underneath.

The fight against the patrolling of women's bodies has been ongoing for decades, but in the last few years we're seeing women bite back more and more against the unwarranted and unwelcome criticism with movements like "free the nipple".

The latest woman in the spotlight to receive backlash from sexist trolls online is none other than 'Black Widow' star Florence Pugh, since her nipples were visible in a gown at a Valentino show in Rome. But if one thing is certain, it's that Pugh can handle it, knowing exactly what to say to the bigots.

On Sunday evening, she posted a picture of herself at the event to Instagram along with a powerful caption about the policing of her body, stating "Listen, I knew when I wore that incredible Valentino dress that there was no way there wouldn’t be a commentary on it".

She poses the caption towards men in particular, "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..?".

"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".

Pugh's unwavering response is bang on and in 2022, it feels crazy to have to argue over what she calls an "inch of darker skin". In her own words, "And all because of two cute little nipples….".
