Florence Pugh tells critics to 'grow up' after backlash for sheer dress:

Florence Pugh reacted angrily to criticism for wearing a sheer, hot pink Valentino gown

to the fashion house's haute couture show in Rome, Italy, on Friday.

Following the event to celebrate the fall 2022-23 collection at the city's famed Piazza di Spagna,

 the 26-year-old "Don't Worry Darling" star penned a lengthy caption on Instagram to not only defend her body, but also to ask for "respect" for all people.

"Listen, I knew there would be a commentary on that incredible Valentino dress when I wore it,

" she wrote to her seven million followers. "We all knew what we were doing, whether it was negative or positive.

I was ecstatic to wear it and not the least bit nervous. I wasn't before, during, or after."

Pugh wore a neon pink gown with layers of tulle draped across her chest, a halter neckline, and nothing underneath
