6 ‘Black Panther’ Premiere Red-Carpet Looks We Can’t Get Over
Maybe it was the purple carpet or the “royal attire” dress code, but the cast of Black Panther totally brought their fashion A game to Monday night’s premiere. Some stars paid homage to the film’s fictitious African nation of Wakanda with tribal accents, while others opted for vibrant hues with warrior-inspired accessories. Whatever the inspiration, these six stars totally crushed it.
1. When Lupita Nyong’o Channeled Her Inner Warrior Princess
Nyong’o took a page from her character’s playbook and donned a vibrant purple Versace gown with gold armor accents.
2. And Danai Gurira Was Perfection in Pink
Who says pink has to be soft? Gurira looked fierce in a bright pink gown with ruffle and crystal accents.
4. And Janelle Monáe Wore a Crown Like the Queen She Is
Monáe’s gold crown, chic black ballgown and dramatic sleeves gave us major Coming to America vibes and we’re all about it.
5. When Angela Bassett Was a Vision in Marigold
The color. The tassels. The beads. The platforms. We truly can’t decide which part of this bold look is our favorite.
6. And Finally, When Issa Rae Was an Actual Goddess
From the top knot to the metallic pumps, and everything in between, we’re loving Rae’s Grecian-inspired ensemble.
