She carried her essentials in a £1,890 white square Valentino handbag and appeared to be in jovial spirits as she flashed a huge grin and waved.
It is her first public appearance since she attended the premiere of Don’t Worry Darling at Venice Film Festival at the start of September.
Leading star Florence has been at the centre of speculation about a reported on-set rift with director Olivia Wilde, with original co-star Shia LeBeouf adding to the drama.
Florence chose to limit her time spent for Don’t Worry Darling promotional activities and press calls, due to a busy schedule with other projects, but did appear at the Venice premiere.

But she skipped a press conference for the film in Italy because her flight allegedly would land too late for her to get there, though she was seen in Venice nearby enjoying an Aperol spritz while it was taking place.
Elsewhere at Venice Film Festival, fans claimed footage showed leading man Harry Styles allegedly appearing to gob in co-star Chris Pine’s, with the actor seeming to stop, look down at his leg, and stick out his tongue in disbelief.
The laughing actor, 42, shot an amused look back at the pop star, with fans speculating afterwards that Harry had spit on Chris’ lap.
But it has been denied that any spitting took place, with a source close to Chris Pine telling MailOnline: ‘Harry Styles did not spit at all. People are seeing some odd illusion of sorts online that is clearly deceiving.’

And Olivia also shut down rumours of any spitting occurring, insisting that people are trying to ‘look for drama’.
Florence and Olivia reportedly came into conflict during filming, as the Black Widow star was said to be unhappy over allegations that Olivia ‘hooked up’ with Harry Styles while engaged to Jason Sudeikis.
Olivia, 38, and Jason, 46, got engaged in 2012 and share children Otis, eight, and Daisy, five. They were thought to have split in November 2020 and Olivia made headlines with Harry in January 2021.
While it’s never been confirmed that Olivia and Harry’s romance began while she was still engaged to Jason, Page Six reported that Florence fell out with Olivia over the coupling.

Then in the lead-up to the film’s release, Florence did little-to-no promotion for the movie and was seen enjoying a cocktail nearby in Venice as she skipped a press conference for Don’t Worry Darling.
The rumours intensified after Olivia suggested Florence should have a ‘wake-up call’ in a leaked video, shared by Shia as he refuted Wilde’s claim that he had been fired.
Shia was originally set to star in Don’t Worry Darling before Olivia replaced him with Harry, with Olivia claiming Shia’s process was ‘not conducive to the ethos that I demand in my productions’.
But in response, Shia – who claims he quit ‘due to lack of rehearsal time’ – shared an an email he sent to the director and a video that she allegedly sent to him, proving he walked away from the film rather than being fired.

In the footage, Olivia can be heard encouraging Shia to stay signed on to the film, rather than leave it, while also hinting at apparent tension with Pugh, 26, who she referred to as ‘Miss Flo’.
In the clip, she said: ‘I feel like I’m not ready to give up on this yet, and I, too, am heartbroken and I want to figure this out.
‘You know, I think this might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo, and I want to know if you’re open to giving this a shot with me, with us.
‘If she really commits, if she really puts her mind and heart into it at this point and if you guys can make peace — and I respect your point of view, I respect hers — but if you guys can do it, what do you think? Is there hope? Will you let me know?’

But in a recent interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Olivia doubled down on her claims that she fired Shia, insisting that she ‘chose Florence’ after she claimed Shia had issued her with an ultimatum.
When asked if she fired Shia, Olivia said: ‘We had to replace Shia. He is a fantastic actor, but it wasn’t gonna work. When he gave me the ultimatum of, you know, him or Florence, I chose Florence.’
‘That was him feeling he was stepping away and me feeling like we were moving on without him,’ she added.
Addressing the conflicting accounts of Olivia claiming Shia was fired and the actor saying he quit, Stephen asked if he left in such a way that they could both believe they were correct in their stances.

To which, Olivia said: ‘It’s a question of semantics. It wasn’t going to move forward in a way he wanted it to, so he had to leave.’
In the interview, she also addressed the widely-rumoured feud with Florence, insisting she has ‘nothing but respect’ for the star, despite by being plagued by claims to the contrary.
Olivia gushed about Florence’s performance in the controversial movie, and suggested being questioned about the feud is sexist because it’s not something her ‘male director colleagues are answering’.
‘She is sensational in this film. And it is about her being brave enough to listen to the brave people who’ve come before her who everyone else has ignored and trust her instincts,’ Olivia said.

‘And she is the one brave enough to dismantle the system. She is a super hero. And Florence Pugh is as good at dramatic work as she is at action. There are real action sequences in the film. She has a run which I refer to as her ‘Tom Cruise run.’ It’s the most impressive run I’ve ever seen,’ she added.
Elsewhere, crew members that worked on Don’t Worry Darling shared a statement last month refuting rumours of any on-set issues between Olivia and Florence.
A total of 40 individuals, including producer Miri Yoon, came forward to release a statement obtained by DailyMail.com with the ‘need to correct’ the alleged claims, calling them ‘absurd’ and ‘completely false.’
The recent statement came shortly after an insider told Vulture that both Olivia Wilde, 38, and Florence, 26, got into a ‘screaming match’ during filming last year.

The new claims counteract what a previous unnamed insider informed Vulture in regards to the drama that allegedly occurred on set in 2021.
