Zendaya shows off her toned figure in a white cut-out gown with a thigh-high leg slit at Dune: Part Two photocall in Paris

Zendaya showed off her toned figure as she attended a photocall for Dune: Part Two in Paris on Monday. 

The actress, 27, who plays Chani in the upcoming science-fiction epic, looked incredible in a cut-out gown with a thigh-high leg slit. 

The elegant white dress wrapped around her torso before falling to the floor with an asymmetric hem and slight train. 

Posing for photos on the roof of the Shangri La Hotel, Zendaya swept her hair back from her face and topped off her look with a pair of stilettos. 

She was joined at the event by her co-star Timothée Chalamet, 28, while Austin Butler and Rebecca Ferguson were also in attendance.

Zendaya stars as Chani, a member of the Fremen, a tribe living in the deserts of Arrakis that has learned to survive in its unforgiving heat, while Timothée plays the messianic figure Paul Atreides in both films. 

The new Dune sequel takes place immediately after the first film ended, when Paul Atreides and his mother (played by Rebecca) joined forces with Chani and the rest of the desert-dwelling Fremen to get revenge against the evil House Harkonnen, whose members have killed most of his family and friends.

The film was originally scheduled for a late October 2023 release, before being pushed back to November and finally shuffled all the way back to March of this year following the dual writers and actors strikes.

The photocall comes after Zendaya revealed that she was ‘too nervous’ to even speak to her Dune: Part Two co-star Christopher Walken after he joined the cast. 

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actress was joined by her co-stars Florence Pugh, Austin and Timothee, ahead of the film’s release on March 1.

Christopher, 80, appeared in a preview clip that was played during the show, featuring him as Shaddam IV, the Padishah Emperor of the Known Universe, in a dramatic scene with Florence, 28, who plays his daughter Princess Irulan.

‘Did you know going in that Christopher Walken was going to play your dad?,’ Jimmy, 56, asked Florence who wore a white dress with spaghetti straps.

‘Oh, yeah, no. It was like a ”by the way, your dad is Christopher Walken”. I was like, ”Oh, thank god”,’ Florence said with a laugh.

Jimmy asked all of them if they got to interact with Walken and admitted to wondering what the legendary actor was like.

‘I did. I spent most of my days with him and Charlotte Rampling and Léa Seydoux, but mostly him. And all of our stuff was so intense. 

‘So I kind of was just with him in a room for hours,’ said Florence, who is a newcomer to the Dune sequel along with Walken.

‘Is he intense for hours as a human?,’ Jimmy asked.

‘No. He’s surprisingly silly. In between takes, he would be talking to me about his favorite kind of doughnuts,’ Florence revealed.

She said they would film a dramatic scene and then Walken would turn to her and ask her about her favorite kind of doughnut.

‘Like, jam-filled obviously,’ Florence said. ‘And then, we would go into another take of a really serious scene.’

‘Wow. I love that you got that. I didn’t even say anything to him,’ admitted Zendaya.

‘Is that true?,’ Jimmy asked. 

‘I was too nervous. What do I say? I mean, what do I say? I could’ve said, ”What kind of doughnuts do you like?” Now I know that,’ quipped Zendaya, who reprises her role of Fremen warrior Chani in the sequel.

‘What do you say? You know what I mean? I remember us in the trailer, everybody is having fun playing music, and as soon as he came …practicing my lines,’ Zendaya added as she mimicked going from dancing to reading a script in Walken’s presence.

Jimmy then asked Timothée and Austin if they also were nervous about talking to Walken.

‘I was pretty terrified to talk to him,’ Timothée admitted.

Jimmy asked if Christopher shared any career advice with them and Austin said that he did.

‘When we were filming a scene with him the offer had just come in to do Saturday Night Live,’ the Elvis star said. ‘And I was so nervous, I wanted to say no.’

Austin said he asked Timothée, who previously hosted SNL in 2020, and anybody else who had done it before about going on the show.

‘I was just so terrified. At one point, I thought, ”Well, he’s done it so many times and he’s one of the best hosts.” So I said, ”Chris what do you think of Saturday Night Live? Should I do it?” He goes, ”You gotta do it. Just read the cue cards.”,’ Austin said while breaking into a spot-on impersonation of Walken.

‘That’s pretty good,’ Jimmy said. ‘That’s a solid Christopher Walken.’
