The greatly anticipated premiere of Don’t Worry Darling starring Florence Pugh and Harry Styles finally took place on 5 September 2022.

Rumours surrounding the film’s lead actress Florence, 26, and its director Olivia Wilde, 38, have been circulating the internet for weeks prior to the event.

But despite the controversy Florence, who is from Oxford, did in fact attend the red carpet and the premiere for the film.

Florence seemed unbothered by the rumours as she walked the carpet.

She arrived at the festival ten minutes into the press conference - of which she did not take part- wearing a purple Valentino outfit.

The actress rocked a matching royal purple crop top and shorts as well as a lace shirt jacket.

She wore heels from the Valentino Resort 2023 collection - she kept to theme as the shoes were also purple.

The play suit is from Valentino and is covered in jewels.

Later on in the day it was time for the red carpet, which is the first time the majority of the film’s cast has been seen together since press for the project began.

Florence wore a second Valentino outfit, this time a black playsuit covered in sparkles with a long train.

The actress wore a pair of feathered heels to accompany the play suit.

But fashion is not the main talking event from this red carpet but rather the cast of the film’s odd interaction with one another.

Florence was seen speaking with fellow cast members Gemma Chan and Chris Pine in a friendly manner at the event, but she did not talk to Olivia Wilde or Harry Styles.

At the press conference Olivia was asked to address the rumours.

She said: “I can’t say how honoured I am to have her as our lead.

“She’s amazing in the film and as for all the endless tabloid gossip and all the noise out there, I  mean, the internet feeds itself.

“I don’t feel the need to contribute, I think it’s sufficiently well nourished.”

The premiere is just another puzzle piece in the drama surrounding Don’t Worry Darling.

Olivia began dating Harry whist she was still in a relationship with Jason.

Unconfirmed rumours suggest that there is tension between Florence and Olivia as she began a romantic relationship with Harry Styles on the set of the movie.

Olivia was still married to ex-husband Jason Sudeikis at the time which sparked controversy.

Florence has barely promoted the film on her social media and other than one article in Harper’s Bazaar she has been silent about the movie.

Florence has not confirmed her opinions on the situation but in the interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Florence said: “Obviously, the nature of hiring the most famous pop star in the world, you’re going to have conversations like that.

“That’s just not what I’m going to be discussing because (this movie is) bigger and better than that.

“And the people who made it are bigger and better than that.”

It has been reported that Florence cannot make the event as she is currently filming for Dune Part 2 in Budapest.

The actress flew into Venice for the red-carpet and the first screening of the film on 5 September 2022, but quickly left to jet back to set as soon as the event is over.

Florence plays a 1950s housewife named Alice Chambers in Don’t Worry Darling. The film is a psychological thriller and will be released on 23 September 2022 in the UK.

The film also stars Harry Styles, Gemma Chan, Nick Kroll and Chris Pine.

It follows a couple who live in Victory, California in the 1950s - their idyllic lifestyle begins to fall apart around them and their happy life collapses.

The film has a budget of $20million and was based on a screenplay written by Katie Silberman who also wrote the screenplay for Booksmart in 2019.
