Now that the machine is back up and running after the strikes, some of the premieres that were previously scrapped, are about to come back in the not so distant future.
One of the most awaited ones in that of “Dune: Part Two“, so I felt that I had to honor it in the only way I know how: by analyzing what Zendaya wore in London on the red carpet for the first chapter of this journey.
Believe me when I say that I kept going back to it, but once I saw that the Black beauty attended the CCXP in Brazil (an annual edition of the Brazilian pop culture and comic book convention) some days ago, I thought it might be the right time to start circling back on something that is going to be a huge press tour next year.
And frankly, I can’t wait.
For the premiere, Zendaya donned a cream Rick Owens long sequined dress with train from the Fall 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection, paired with what I suspect are her infamous white Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate‘ 120 pumps.
Being a Bulgari ambassador comes with its own perks, indeed she complemented her look with several pieces by the Italian jewelry house: a pair of diamond stud earrings, a Serpenti Viper diamond ring on her left ring finger, on her right index finger and on her right pinky, a yellow diamond ring on her right ring finger and three Serpenti Viper bracelets on her right arm and wrist.
Coleman‘s makeup contrasted with her dress and MUA Raoúl Alejandre elongated her inner corners with a purple glittery eyeshadow. He also flared out her black eyeliner to create a smokey eye–combed brows and false lashes completed the look.
All products used were courtesy of Lancôme.
Her hair was sleeked back to heavens by her hairstylist Antoinette Hill who opted for a deep side part, twisting it on the sides, to then culminate in a twisted chignon. This was undoubtedly the best way to do her hair, seen the magnitude of the dress.
Also, what comes to mind looking at those twists is the imagery of the movie, specifically Zendaya‘s breathing apparatus (I know it may be far fetched, but I like to draw parallels here and there whenever possible).
The “Euphoria” actress’ short nails were as always cared for, painted with a sheer pink nail polish. She usually switches manicurists and salons, so check this article for further details on her manicure. At the moment we were not able to identify who did them for her.
Storytelling. When Zendaya and image architect Law Roach collaborate, it’s always something emotional and evocative. This time was no less. While I look at her dress I’m reminded of the dunes in the desert which change with the wind. So does her dress while she walks on the red carpet, a show stopping queen as always.
Roach is very connected to the clothes he chooses for his clients (of course partnerships aside) and with Zendaya there is a whole narrative that he pushes every time; she is truly his one and only fashion muse.
Dune is a 2021 American epic science fiction film directed by Denis Villeneuve with a screenplay by Jon Spaihts, Villeneuve, and Eric Roth.
It is the first of a planned two-part adaptation of the 1965 novel of the same name by Frank Herbert, which covers roughly the first half of the book.
In the movie, Zendaya stars as Chani, a young Fremen.
