Zendaya is on the cover of W Magazine‘s Directors issue and the shoot was directed by her Dune director Denis Villeneuve.
The futuristic photo shoot was photographed by Jack Davison and styled by her longtime stylist Law Roach.
“Zendaya has shot maybe 10,000 covers of magazines. It’s something I’ve never done…I’m approaching this with a lot of humility. My expectation about it is just to have, frankly, creative fun,” Denis told the mag.
Denis also talked about humanity and the common thread across all of his films.
“What will make a story relevant is if you believe in the characters, and if they are real beings having real human responses…People will believe in Arrakis if they believe in Zendaya. And Zendaya killed it. When we turned on the camera and she started to behave as Chani, I saw the birth of the character,” he said.
