Florence Pugh just proved gray can be anything but boring Sunday night at the New York City premiere of Dune: Part Two.

Throughout the promo tour for the second installment of the Denis Villeneuve sci-fi series, Pugh’s litany of regal red-carpet looks has felt like a tribute to her character, Princess Irulan. Last night’s look was no different—but she also put a skin-baring twist on her signature princess style.

Pulling a look from Valentino’s Spring/Summer 2024 couture collection, the Little Women star looked fabulous in a foggy-gray halterneck gown made out of a pleated fabric that flowed around her figure like liquid. The dress featured a totally backless silhouette, the opening stretching from around the sides of her chest to the center of her back.

She styled the look with her go-to platform heels, this pair in a metallic silver, as well as an array of diamond ear cuffs and rings from Ana Khouri.

Earlier this month, Pugh talked about embodying Princess Irulan, a character who mainly appears in the original 1965 novel Dune only as the story’s impersonal narrator.

“She becomes more of an essence, so I appreciated how she wasn’t just fully present—how you want to know more about her, and how she does evolve with the story,” she told Screen Rant in a recent interview. “I think personally, other than the fact that every book that you read has more detail in it than a script can, I appreciated that I could see her on the pages and in the book, and also in [writer-director] Denis [Villeneuve]’s script.”
