Zendaya, renowned for her bold and unconventional fashion choices, once again stole the spotlight at the Dune: Part Two photocall in Mexico City on Monday, February 5.

After turning heads with avant-garde ensembles at Paris Haute Couture Week last month, the 27-year-old American movie actress continued to push the boundaries of style with her warrior-inspired look.

To start the sci-fi epic’s promotional tour, Zendaya made her grand entrance onto the red carpet at the Four Seasons Hotel, showcasing her chiseled midsection.

Styled by her image architect Law Roach, known for his work with stars like Megan Thee Stallion and Anne Hathaway, she donned a bespoke creation by London-based designer Torishéju Dumi, who debuted her first collection during Paris Fashion Week in 2023.

The sleeveless dress, a modified version from the emerging designer’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection, was a masterpiece of multicolored layers of neutral fabrics, featuring navy blue, slate blue, gray, and a bold pop of red, creating a visually captivating silhouette.

Its cropped top design highlighted Zendaya’s toned abs, adding to the overall allure of her look.

A standout feature of the Malcolm & Marie star’s outfit was a large strip of fabric wrapped around her neck, cascading down her back to create a cape-like train. This element was a subtle nod to her character, Chani, in the Dune film, reminiscent of the scarf she wears.

Additionally, Zendaya’s gown incorporated intricate circles of knotted fabric, characteristic of the designer’s style and inspired by traditional wrap clothing from Brazilian and Nigerian cultures.

Notably, these circles subtly echoed the mouths of the formidable sandworms from the movie for an intriguing element to the outfit.

Completing Tom Holland’s girlfriend’s ensemble was a maxi skirt with a high slit, showcasing her long legs and accentuating her sleek black Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps.

The pumps, crafted from nappa leather, featured a pointed-toe silhouette with sharply angled soles and thin stiletto heels, adding an extra flair to Zendaya’s outfit.

While minimal in accessories, The Greatest Showman actress elevated her ensemble with Bulgari jewels, including a gold Serpenti Viper earring and a B.zero1 ring in yellow gold, infusing a subtle yet luxurious touch.

As a brand ambassador for Bulgari since 2020, Zendaya has seamlessly integrated the high jewelry house’s designs into her red carpet looks.

The CFDA Fashion Icon Awardee chose a chic and sophisticated look for her hair and makeup, discarding the baby bangs she debuted during couture week.

Her hair was styled into a neat low bun with a deep side part, with a single wavy strand framing her face. Her makeup consisted of a simple smokey eye and glossy nude lip, enhancing her natural beauty and completing her glamorous ensemble.

This unique creation, inspired by a design from Matthieu Blazy’s Fall 2023 collection, seamlessly fused haute couture with sci-fi allure.

Complementing the top, the Euphoria star’s wool skirt redefined office-wear norms with a polished leather cinched waistband, boxy square pocket flaps, and a daring thigh-high leg slit.
