Hollywood actress Florence Pugh debuts her shaved head at Met Gala

Florence Pugh debuted a fresh new buzzcut as she arrived for her first Met Gala appearance on Monday.

The British actor, 27, said she had been keeping the look a secret "for about three weeks" ahead of its grand reveal on one of the biggest nights in the fashion calendar.

She said she had undergone her transformation for upcoming film We Live in Time, in which she stars with Andrew Garfield, and that it had felt "unbelievable".

"It was required for the job that I happily wanted to do and I thought what is the best way to release it to the world than at the Met?" she told US outlets on the event's carpet.

"I’ve been keeping it under wraps for about three weeks now. I’m very happy to have it here with this look, it makes everything perfect."

Recently announced as the newest ambassador for Italian fashion house Valentino, Pugh wore a dramatic white gown with a long train trailing across the carpet by the brand to the Met.

Her ensemble played off late fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld’s love of a monochromatic colour palette with the white dress complemented by a black bow and a towering black feathered headpiece.

Announcing her partnership with Valentino, Pugh said she was "shocked and ecstatic" and thanked the fashion house for "letting me be me".

"Truly an honour to continue creating art with my family at Valentino," she said on Instagram.

"Working with talented people is one thing, but to work with talented people who are great friends feeds the soul! And this campaign truly did feed the soul. Thank you for letting me be me."

Not much is known about We Live in Time itself, other than it's been described as a "funny, deeply moving and immersive love story", per Deadline.

Shooting originally got underway last month in London, with The Amazing Spider-Man actor Andrew, 39, reportedly scolding onlookers for "distracting" him on set.

A source claimed to the gossip site Deux Moi: "Andrew Garfield and Florence Pugh currently filming a new movie in London. On Monday AG was filming in a scene right outside his flat (S London). My bf and flatmates were looking through their second story and AG saw them watching.

They continued: "Then AG cut the scene, motioned for them to open the window and started yelling a them, saying how disrespectful it was for them to be distracting him by looking out of their own living room window??"

We Live in Time marks the first big-screen collaboration between Andrew and Florence, with both Hollywood superstars having earned Oscar nominations for their work on Hacksaw Ridge, Tick, Tick… Boom! and Little Women respectively.
