Zendaya never misses when it comes to fashion. 

The actress was a walking work of art at a photocall for her upcoming movie Dune: Part Two at the Four Seasons in Mexico City, Mexico, on Monday, February 5. For the occasion, Zendaya opted for a custom creation by British-Nigerian designer Torishéju Dumi that perfectly fit the film’s desert aesthetic. 

The ensemble came in the form of a skin-baring dress (or two-piece) that featured a deconstructed crop top with fabric wrapped in contrasting directions. The piece connected to a coordinating high-low skirt that featured a thigh-high slit and bright red fabric that fell into a billowing train. For footwear, Zendaya rocked a pair of pointed-toe pumps. (Dumi previously revealed in an October 2023 interview with Vogue that her label’s unfinished look takes inspiration from her time completing her design studies amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “Sometimes when you don’t have enough material to make the whole piece, you can just tie it and pair it with pants. I like the whole idea of just walking out. If you really want something in life, you find a way,” she told the publication.) 

On the Monday red carpet, Zendaya — who was styled by her longtime “image architect” Law Roach — paired the getup with a sleek wet updo with a single tendril delicately touching her cheek. For glam, she was dewy and glowy with a golden highlight, warm eyes and a glossy pout.

Pugh, 28, was a must-see in a mesh set that featured a bralette and a floor-length skirt adorned with dangling beads. She complemented the gleaming number with sparkly layered necklaces, a nose ring and an edgy updo.
