There's So Much Unicorn Beauty Inspo in the New Valerian Trailer

The final trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, Luc Besson’s long-awaited film version of the comic of the same name, has finally hit, and while there’s no Rihanna to be found in this clip, you will find every holographic glittery look you’ll ever want to wear on your unicorn-pukiest days.

The story is about a beautiful futuristic city known as Alpha, which, like all the best earth cities, is populated by a diverse selection of species and thrives because of it. Someone always wants to destroy that, though, so the Trump character in this narrative is a demonic bomb thing that “wants to destroy all that we have created,” says a voiceover. As on our earth, Cara Delevingne is the key to saving the universe. If you’re taking Pinterest notes, all the evil stuff is the color of dirt and happens in the night sky, and all the good stuff is pastel and shimmery, like all your favorite and priciest beauty looks.

Nobody contours like these little dudes! These looks, headed by makeup department head Thi Thanh Tu Nguyen, are otherworldly ;). And we haven’t even gotten to Rihanna’s classic, Minelli-inspired cabaret looks.

The beauty world—or should we say universe—is gonna go apeshit!

I love Fifth Element as much (or more) than the next man, and want Luc Besson to succeed, but these trailers are really bad. The first one was the best; just show me some shiny things that are vaguely Fifth Element-esque and then don’t focus on the fact that the two leads look like 12-year-olds who will require a lot of suspension of disbelief for.
