For some followers, information that Denis Villeneuve formally filmed a sequel to 2021’s Dune is thrilling as a result of it means we’ll get to spend extra time inside his model of the desert planet Arrakis, if solely to search out out what’s occurring with Paul Atredies and his pesky visions.
For the remainder of us, the true thrill of a Dune: Half Two is the promise of with the ability to see two of our most fashionable thespians do one other press tour collectively.
Timothée Chalamet, who stars as Paul within the franchise, and Zendaya, who performs Chani, kicked off their Dune reunion tour at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday, the place they joined director Villeneuve onstage to debut a brand new trailer for the movie. Each stars have been busy recently: Zendaya, talking of spending time within the desert, gave a shock efficiency alongside Euphoria composer Labrinth at Coachella this previous weekend. Timmy, in the meantime, can also be at CinemaCon to advertise his upcoming function because the titular chocolatier in Wonka. “Timmy got here again with much more information about chocolate,” Villeneuve joked in the course of the Dune presentation.
Nonetheless, the costars arrived of their regular beguiling style. Timmy wore archival Helmut Lang, layering one of many designer’s famous leather-based bulletproof vest tops from Fall 1998 over a plain white tee with circa-2014 Rick Owens black moto pants; he additionally seems to be carrying, as his stans have termed them, his “Venice Haider Ackermann boots.” Z, in the meantime, wore a full look from Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2023 assortment—a backless tweed waistcoat and billowing wide-legged trousers. (This is sensible on condition that Zendaya was named Louis Vuitton’s latest international ambassador earlier this week.)
And beguile they did—they appear nice! However hear me out. Think about if they switched outfits. If, as a substitute, it was Timothée who wore the deconstructed Vuitton vest and ballooning trousers, whereas Zendaya rocked the killer classic Helmut Lang x Rick Owens leather-based set. Firstly, Timmy already has expertise doing a backless second, and the steampunk-y vibe can be a pleasant praise to his Wonka period. (I might not thoughts if he saved his Ackermann boots on rather than Zendaya’s white Louboutin stilettos, however I might even be impressed if he took up the problem.) Moreover, Zendaya, who already appears to be like wonderful in every part, might most likely crack the web in half if she began dressing even simply 10 % extra like a biker. Though let’s be trustworthy: the very Shane-from-The–L–Phrase ensemble would look nice on each of them.
