We can always count on Florence Pugh to deliver a head-turning hair and make-up look on the red carpet.

This year alone, the Oppenheimer star dyed her close-cropped hair pastel pink (before embracing an ultra cool Billy Idol 'do), stunned in a Valentino headpiece at the Met Gala, and showed off faux bangs complete with a chic black bow at the Oscars. Her latest statement hairstyle? A set of messy, oh-so-2000s gel spikes debuted on the carpet of tonight’s ELLE Style Awards.

The chaotically chic hairstyle sees Florence's grown-out platinum buzzcut take some classic turn-of-the-millennium beauty cues; think choppy, windswept tresses, noughties boy-band style, complete with a generous helping of gel. And 'who was the eye behind this sharp, unique look?' I hear you ask. Why the Don't Worry Darling actor’s go-to celebrity hairstylist, Peter Lux, ofc!

Peter is responsible for some of Flo's most notable hair moments this year, from structural up-dos to her headline-catching buzz.

Make-up wise, the actor veered towards a more traditional au naturel beauty look: a pared-back complexion with a gentle sun-kissed bronze, naturally flushed lips and a meticulously placed golden highlight for that candlelit red-carpet glow. For the eyes, make-up artist Alex Babsky chose a simple layer of thickening mascara paired with a darker feathered brow.

So, if you’re searching for your next bridal beauty inspiration, look no further than this masterclass in elegant, feature-enhancing make-up. Gorg!
