The Marvel Studio’s “Black Panther” premiere in Los Angeles on Monday night was just epic for the African brother and sisters. In keeping with the “royal attire” theme dictated by the evening’s invitation, stars and attendees hit the purple-hued carpet in a kaleidoscopic display of regal, Africa-inspired fashion.
Our girl Lupita Nyong’o channeled her warrior character, Nakia, while wearing a purple, custom-made Atelier Versace chiffon gown with gold metal hardware harness details reminiscent of armor. Chadwick Boseman, who stars as Wakandan ruler T’Challa, looked every bit the part in a black and gold blazer by Emporio Armani.
For Letitia Wright, who plays the role of princess Shuri in the Ryan Coogler-directed film, that interpretation came in the form of a black-and-white embroidered Bibhu Mohapatra gown, picked out with the help of stylist Ade Samuel.
