“Dune” star Rebecca Ferguson covers the October 2021 issue of Fashion Magazine photographed by Royal Gilbert and styled by Karen Clarkson.
“The angles were stunning,” says Ferguson about the duvet-like dress, likening it to the “enormously heavy” costumes she wore while filming her breakout role in the Starz series The White Queen, which was set in the 15th century. “The wealthier you were, the more fabric you had. This creation really reminded me of that. But once it was on, I couldn’t move.”
Based on the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert, Dune is a movie that fans have been wanting for, well, decades — or at least since the last big-screen adaptation, in 1984, directed by David Lynch, flopped with critics and at the box office. Ferguson plays Lady Jessica, mother to potential world saviour Paul Atreides, played by red-hot Timothée Chalamet, whom Ferguson describes as “just magic.” “I wasn’t a fan of Lynch’s version,” she notes. “I think I fell asleep. It’s dated, but there’s a beauty to the datedness.”
