Cara Delevingne matched her style to her movie genre, wearing a futuristic Iris van Herpen dress to the premiere of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.


The gown bared the actress’ shoulders and chest, but wound up around her neck. It was a silver metallic color, and when asked, Delevingne unsurely said it was made of “plastic? But amazing plastic.” On the red carpet, Delevingne raved about the comfort of the piece. “Malleable,” she said, “yeah, I can move, I can pop a squat in this.” In addition, the actress did her hair in a futuristic manner – very gelled down, with a wave in the front.

On acting in the sci-fi film and doing her own stunts, Delevingne said she had a blast. “It was fun, I love anything to do with when I get to learn something new for a film,” she said. “So just getting involved as much as possible, any stunt was a part of it, it was amazing.”

Valerian was adapted from a French comic book series by Luc Besson, who was responsible for genre classic The Fifth Element. “If you want to come up with something, if you’re pretentious enough to say ‘I’m coming with something new,’ come with something really new and different,” the filmmaker told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’d rather take the risk, that people watch the film and are blown away and get lost because there is so much but I don’t want to do the things that we see almost every week now. I just want to do something different because that’s what I want as a moviegoer, I want something fresh and new.”

Delevingne stars alongside Dane DeHaan. The film hits theaters July 21.
