The impressive 10 000-silk-flower dress Florence Pugh wore in Midsommar has sold for $65 000 (just over R1 million) at a charity auction.

Officials at A24, the studio behind the Midsommar film, put the almost 14kg-creation the actress wore for the May Queen scene and her matching crown up for auction alongside numerous other film props. This was in a bid to raise money for organisations in New York amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Five bidders sought after the item but it was the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures that placed the winning bid, with that money going directly to the New York City fire department's official non-profit organisation.
