Regé-Jean Page defends Florence Pugh amid clothing shame

The duke has spoken.

“Bridgerton” star Regé-Jean Page has taken to Instagram in defense of Florence Pugh after the actress’s sheer Valentino dress received criticism online.

“What. Is. So. Terrifying?” he posted, echoing Pugh’s own words and sharing a photo of the young star — who wore a bright pink dress with bare nipples at Saturday’s Valentino Haute Couture fashion show in Paris — to his Instagram story.

“Look at yourselves guys,” he wrote in the post. “Then look at your friends and get up when it’s time to get up. If the boys are out of tune, say a word.’

“The weird thing about misogyny is that men really listen to other men,” the actor added. “So do your bit, because [sic] especially the coming years will be a very good time to listen and take some responsibility, for the benefit of all.”

Page, 34, stepped down from his role as the Duke of Hastings in Bridgerton after the series’ first season, but it appears his chivalrous demeanor has continued.

As for Pugh, she also defended her clothing choice on Instagram, clapping back at those who criticized her outfit “all because of two cute little nipples.”

“It’s not the first and certainly not the last time a woman has heard through a crowd of strangers what’s wrong with her body, what’s disturbing is how vulgar some of you men can be,” she wrote in part.

Indeed, the comments on her original Instagram post about the dress spawned comments like, “Just a little small. Probably needs attention” and “Wear a dress that leaves something to the imagination rather than letting the world touch your chest.” see and no one will say a mean thing.’

The 26-year-old ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ actress shared her disappointment at how “many of you aggressively wanted to let me know how disappointed you were by my ‘small tits’, or how I should be ashamed of myself for being so ‘flat on my chest ‘was.’.”

“Listen, I knew when I wore that incredible Valentino dress there was no way I couldn’t comment on it,” Pugh posted on Instagram. “Whether negative or positive, we all knew what we were doing.”

“I was excited to wear it, no wink from me was nervous,” she said of the pink Barbie dress, adding that she “wasn’t before, during or even now.”

The parting thoughts of the “Little Women” star on the topic encouraged people to “grow up.”

“Respect people. Respect bodies. Respect all women. Respect people. Life will be a lot easier, I promise,” she wrote.
