On March 1, Zendaya will reprise her role as Chani in Dune: Part Two, which means Law Roach has spent the past couple of months styling the actor in an accretion of sci-fi inspired looks. Back in December, the actor wore a Schiaparelli skirt with a three-dimensional lobster clinging to its front; she looked like an embattled daughter of Poseidon. And then, in a stunning turn of events, there was the Schiaparelli gown she wore to the brand’s haute couture spring/summer 2024 show last week, constructed with an exoskeletal train reminiscent of a war-mongering Catherynne Valente protagonist.
And then, just last night, Zendaya made an appearance on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, dressed in a close-fitting two piece from The Attico’s spring/summer 2024 collection. Ruched down the shins and unbuttoned with an air of deshabilé at the sternum, Zendaya looked as though she had been caught mid-combat with some kind of extraterrestrial sandworm. (Hair and make-up unscathed, of course.) The sleeves on Timothée Chalamet’s Stüssy hoodie, meanwhile, had seemingly perished.
