Zendaya has been rocking eye-catching outfits during the Dune: Part Two press tour. But her latest futuristic look might be our favorite to date. 

Today, the 27-year-old actress attended the London premiere of the highly anticipated sequel. Zendaya stole the show in a silver robotic outfit that resembled armor with cutouts.

The catsuit featured metallic armor that spanned from her neck to her toes. It also featured cut-outs on her thighs, stomach, arms and chest that created dimension and drew attention away from the metal design. 

When she turned around, Zendaya confirmed the rest of the cut-outs are exactly where you’d expect them to be (areas where you’d need a better range of motion, like your shoulder blades and calves, of course).

Per Buzzfeed, the outfit was reportedly taken from Thierry Mugler's 20th anniversary fall/winter runway fashion show from 1995. According to The New York Times, the “fembot” design took six months to complete, and it featured a full-body catsuit made from metal and plexiglas.

Dune: Part Two is a follow-up to the original movie, which premiered in 2021. Both films were inspired by the 1965 sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert and directed by Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049). 

In addition to Zendaya, Dune: Part Two will feature returning cast members Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, Charlotte Rampling and Javier Bardem. It will also highlight a few newcomers, including Florence Pugh, Anya Taylor-Joy, Austin Butler, Christopher Walken and Léa Seydoux. The new film will hit theaters on March 1.
