Mugler’s robot suit was created in collaboration with artist Jean-Jacques Urcun, who developed new techniques to achieve the designer’s vision. The suit features plexiglass cutouts throughout its chrome frame.

Introduced on the runway in 1995 during Mugler’s 25th anniversary show in Paris, the robot suit was inspired by the character Futura from Thea von Harbou’s 1925 novel “Metropolis” and took six months of work.

In 2022, the robot suit was part of the Brooklyn Museum’s “Thierry Mugler: Couturissime” exhibit in New York. A custom version of the piece created by Casey Cadwallader was worn by Beyoncé during her “Renaissance World Tour” in June 2023. 

Zendaya was styled by Law Roach.

On Wednesday, Zendaya joined the rest of the cast of “Dune: Part Two” for a photo call in London, where she wore a deep purple suit from Roksanda’s fall 2024 ready-to-wear collection. 

In “Dune: Part Two,” which is set to premiere on March 1, Zendaya plays the main character Chani. The cast of the film also includes Timothée Chalamet, Florence Pugh, Rebecca Ferguson and Anya Taylor-Joy. At the world premiere, Chalamet wore metallic pants by Haider Ackermann while Pugh also followed the futuristic aesthetic in a sequined hood dress by Valentino.
