Florence Pugh holds a special place in the hearts of style obsessives – and for excellent reason. The Little Women star consistently brings her style A-game to the red (or in this case, champagne) carpet and last night's Oscars look posed no exception.

Dressed by her long-time stylist Rebecca Corbin Murray, the 27-year-old revitalised the traditional Oscars gown by layering her dramatic split Valentino piece over chic black hotpants.

While we couldn't help but admire her innovative approach, the look that caught our eye the most was her after-party outfit.

Vanity Fair's legendary post-ceremony bash presents the perfect opportunity for the industry's key players to let their hair down.

Swapping out a leading lady-level gown in favour of some high-octane partywear was on the agenda for Florence and she stepped out in a look that we certainly won't be forgetting in a hurry. Consider us obsessed.

Flying the flag for the bare midriff, the actress looked glamorous in an ensemble that came courtesy of her beloved Valentino. Florence opted for a simply cut black bra and matching tailored trousers, over which she layered maximalist baby pink outerwear.

Florence opted for an ensemble by Valentino 

The bra felt classic and cool, featuring 3D rose detailing on each of the cups. The avant-garde detailing directly nodded to the 3D floral trend that took London Fashion week by storm last month. At Richard Quinn and Paul & Joe, models graced the catwalk in striking corsages whereas a couple of weeks later at Chanel, the maison championed its iconic camellia motif via hair accessories and shoe adornments.

The actress proved that the belly button is back in fashion 

Florence's choice of underwear as outerwear and mid-rise waistband left her midriff exposed and her belly button out front and centre. The navel has become something of a talking point among fashion circles recently since Kim Kardashian sparked some major noughties nostalgia with her belly button chains. 

Y2K but make it Oscars? Florence deserves all the awards…
