Zendaya in Rick Owens at the London ‘Dune’ premiere: stunning & futuristic?

Dune Special Screening Arrivals at Odeon Luxe, Leicester Square, London

I genuinely enjoy that Zendaya and Timothee Chalamet are “the faces” of Dune, and the studio keeps sending them out to promote the film together. They have a nice, easy chemistry and you can tell that they’re quite friendly with each other. Not exactly in a sexy way – although I’m sure they would be hot together – but they genuinely seem to enjoy each other. They attended the big London premiere of Dune last night and they posed with each other a lot on the carpet. Zendaya has been saying in interviews that Timmy is “fam” to her and that’s what they seem like on the carpet – dorky brother and sister. It’s sweet.

Zendaya wore this sculptural Rick Owens gown for the premiere. I mean… she’s thin and beautiful and she can pull off any look. My guess is that both Zendaya and Timmy feel like they should look “sci-fi” on the Dune carpets, which is working out well. That’s what this dress looks like to me – a sci-fi costume.

Timothee wore Alexander McQueen. He’s a dandy who loves clothes, and I appreciate the fact that he doesn’t wear boring grey suits everywhere.

Jason Momoa always looks like he’s having the most fun out of everyone. My guess is that everyone on the carpet got a big Momoa bear hug. Love the velvet too!

Rebecca Ferguson wore Carolina Herrera – a big look, and a fun look. Why not?

    Her dress was perfect for the premiere. It would make a great contemporary wedding dress. She always knocks it out of the park. Designers must love working with her.

    • Moxylady says:

      She gives so much credit to her stylist. They are such a team and work together closely on each look. I adore them

  2. Becks1 says:

    I am loving these big statement red carpet looks after the last year and a half. Zendaya’s dress – I don’t think I would look it for almost anything else, but I love it for the premiere of Dune. And TC looks great as well in that suit, love that its something different.

    Look at all these Hollywood men showing the Burger King how to wear velvet jackets, LOL.

  3. Case says:

    I just talked about “theme dressing” for the event you’re attending in an Eternals post, and Zendaya is SO GOOD at it. I love when celebrities try to plan their outfits around the film premiere they’re attending, and this is such a beautiful and elegant take on the landscapes in Dune. Timothee is also on point with his outfit, which seems to mirror his outfit in the film.

  4. Wilma says:

    Jason Momoa always looks like he’s really good people.

    • Noo says:

      You are so right! I met him briefly at a wedding 15 years ago and hubby was on the stag weekend with Jason Momoa. Very kind and super chill. Plus he is living his best life with Lisa Bonet and their family! More please.

  5. Driver8 says:

    Love it. Love everything about it. Love her too. The dress is giving me futuristic Carolyn Bessette vibes and I am HERE FOR IT.

  6. Merricat says:

    Beautiful cast! I love what everyone is wearing. Zendaya might be the only one who can carry off a look like that. I really like the photo of her beaming over Timmy’s shoulder while he gives the camera a sideways look. He’s a clothes-horse, too, and I love a guy who loves fashion.

  7. Barbie1 says:

    Zendaya is stunning. Always look forward to seeing her on the red carpet. That dress should be in the movie it’s that good. Love everything about Rebecca’s look except the hair. Jason looks cute. Timothee looks odd as usual. How he is everyone’s crush is beyond me.

  8. Lightpurple says:

    Zendaya is simply stunning in that ensemble, not just the dress but her styling. Her makeup is perfect for this look. Earlier in the day at a photo shoot, she wore a top and skirt that really did look like a costume from the film – all metal and tatters. Her Venice look was stunning too and they also had another party event in London where she wore a really beautiful but comfortable looking long, flowing white top and black pants. She’s killing it.

  9. Jess says:

    Zendaya looks so incredible. On anyone else that would seem like a sci fi costume. On her it’s just pure beauty. Wow. Everyone else looks great but she is at another level.

  10. tempest prognosticator says:

    Wow! They ALL look smashing.

  11. Pocket Litter says:

    Love, love, love the Rick Owens look. Looks like Jason Momoa is wearing his designer friend’s red velvet shoes. Well done.

  12. Krista says:

    Hey, Prince William? THIS is how you wear a velvet jacket. Take notes.

    Looooove me some Jason Momoa. He was awesome in GoT, but I really loved him in Frontier!

  13. Bettyrose says:

    Zendaya and Timothee together are almost too pretty to look at. Like the sun. The SO and I have a big couch date for the streaming premiere of Dune on Friday.

  14. Watson says:

    I don’t know know why it’s a question? Zendaya and law roach are a match made in heaven. Anything they do together is fantastic, and even if it’s weird, she is always the most interesting to look at in the room.

    • MF1 says:

      I give her credit for choosing interesting looks over the more traditional stuff, and law always knocks it out of the park in terms of styling. When it comes to celebrity stylings (or image architects or whatever), he’s in his own league.

      I will say that I get a little annoyed at all the credit Zendaya gets for being a fashion plate. She’s 25 with a rail-thin modelesque body. Of course she looks amazing in everything she wears–because the fashion industry basically only designs for women like her.

  15. Calypso says:

    Zendaya always looks amazing but could the dress have been hemmed by one inch..? It seems a tiny bit long, right? But such a nitpick, her makeup and accessories and everything is just gorgeous, it works really well.

    I love the word dandy but Jason looks way more the dandy to me..? With his red velvet and soft shoes. Also Timmy is just a BEC for me so I can’t stand him so his clothing choices don’t work for me.

  16. Mia4s says:

    Selling them as, as you say, “the faces” of Dune, is very very smart PR. Especially since if they have followed the story? She’s really not. Certainly not in this first movie. Rebecca Ferguson is the female lead by a mile if they are following the story and given what this first movie is supposed to cover. But it’s brilliant PR to lure in the younger audience. I guess time will tell as to whether that audience is satisfied with what they get. At least enough to come back for more. SUPER curious to see this play out.

    • Normades says:

      Nothing personal against Zendaya but I think part of the reason she gets casts is because they want her there to promote. Rebecca has the far bigger role in this one.

  18. K says:

    She is outrageously beautiful. We are seeing an icon for a generation. What is great about Zendaya is she has put in the work for a long time now. I expect an Oscar nom within a couple years maybe sooner

  19. Pilar says:

    She’s just stunning!

  20. Oria says:

    Timothee looks older here than usual. I’ll give him a year or two to grow out of that young boy look and into a more manly look. You can kind of see it happening already.

  21. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Wow. Absolutely flawless. The whole lot.

  22. Lola says:

    She looks AMAZING. One of few “young stars” I am totally on board with and in awe of (feeling that makes me feel very old!). She’s magnificent!

  23. Faye G says:

    She looks amazing and the dress is very Dune-esque, Timothee looks good too. I can’t wait to watch the movie!

  24. Kristen says:

    I just can’t get over how beautiful Zendaya is. Always.

  25. tony says:

    I always admired that Zendaya has very soft feature which are very striking against the bold lines of that dress.
    I dont think that dress would have looked good with an actress with very thin angular features like the dress.

    Meanwhile timothee looks like he is wearing his much older bigger brother’s prom suit

  26. Megs283 says:

    Have Timothee and Hiddles been in a movie together yet? I just realized how similar they are in appearance.

    Zendaya looks gorgeous… I have never seen anyone pull off a gown like that, until her.
