Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp has teamed with Yahoo Style for a global search for ‘innovative and original’ costume designs to appear in “The Fifth Element” director’s new sci-fi epic “Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets”.

Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, and Clive Owen star in the adaptation of the iconic French sci-fi comic series. DeHaan and Delevingne will play a pair of spatio-temporal agents who help defend a utopian 28th century Earth and its neighboring planets from bad guys.

In a statement, Besson says: “I believe the world we live in is filled with people from all walks of life who possess an abundance of creativity and untapped potential. My hope is that by offering a contest like this to artists worldwide, we will gain access to inspired and original creations from a plethora of fresh perspectives, and the film will benefit from this collaboration.”

The contest, which opens today and which will announce its winners December 14th, invites artists to submit their designs for use in the film which begins shooting in Europe in January ahead of a July 21st 2017 worldwide release.
