Zendaya graced the Venice Film Festival with her presence for the Dune premiere yesterday, and the actress and her stylist Law Roach brought three show-stopping looks to the Italian event. Zendaya arrived in a Valentino Couture dress with a high leg slit (her first but not last). She wore her hair down in curls.

Zendaya's big moment came at the red carpet premiere of Dune, where the actress wore a leather Balmain gown with another thigh-high leg slit. She accessorized with a 93-carat emerald serpentine necklace from Bulgari.

There was a bonus third look that Roach shared on his social media: a white cutout dress by Dion Lee with two leg slits. “The dress y’all didn’t see….. @dionlee,” Roach captioned the video of Zendaya strutting in it.

Zendaya opened up to Empire magazine about how she spent just four days working on Dune for her role as Chani. “My part is very, very small in this movie and that’s why I’m so excited to see it, to see what everyone’s been up to,” she said. “[Dune director Denis Villeneuve and I] had a little discussion about who Chani is and the strength she possesses. She’s a fighter, that’s what her people are. I only really had a few days with her, so I kind of scratched the surface but it was so much fun figuring her out. What does she walk like, what does she talk like? This is her planet, so how does she navigate this world? It was so fun.

“I was only there for four days and I did not want to leave!” she continued when asked about working with Villeneuve. “Denis understands what he wants from us but he’s also very collaborative, allowing me to have my take on the character as well. I don’t want to jinx anything but I can’t wait to explore her more. I hope I get to learn more from Denis. I love to learn from people who are great at their job.”
