Zendaya honored the sci-fi theme of "Dune: Part Two" when she showed up to the movie's London world premiere wearing Thierry Mugler's iconic robot look.

The 27-year-old actor walked the red carpet Feb. 15 at Leicester Square dressed in the metallic space-age outfit from the legendary French fashion designer's fall/winter 1995-1996 collection.

She looked like a sultry cyborg in the futuristic suit, which combined silver metal armor with daring plastic cutaways around the bust, legs and derriere.

The Mugler brand shared images of Zendaya at the premiere Feb. 15 on Instagram.

"@zendaya wears the silver robot from Mugler Fall Winter 1995-1996 ‘Cirque d’hiver’ 20th anniversary collection at the London Première of Dune Part 2," wrote the brand, which thanked celebrity stylist Law Roach, who dressed Zendaya for the event.

Fashion enthusiasts were thrilled to see the “Euphoria” star revive an iconic look by Thierry Mugler, who died in January 2022 at 73.

“One of the greatest fashion moments ever!!!!! Zendaya wearing thierry mugler couture fw95 at the dune premiere in london,” read one tweet on X next to side-by-side pics of Zendaya and a model wearing Mugler’s outfit.
