Lupita Nyong’o In Atelier Versace – ‘Black Panther’ World Premiere

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been waiting for the premiere of ‘Black Panther’ ever since Lupita Nyong’o was cast in the film.

The actress didn’t disappoint when she stepped onto the red carpet on Monday night (January 29) with her co-stars Nabiyah Be, Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett and Danai Gurira, wearing Atelier Versace.

Purple is regarded as a regal colour, which was very apt as this custom-made Atelier Versace gown was fit for a queen.

I love the contrast of the flowy chiffon with the gold metal hardware harness detail combining beauty and strength. It’s a look that I can’t see many others pulling off.

Some might not like the hair, but rather than tribal jewelry – which most went for – she opted to incorporate her African heritage via her hairstyle.

Giuseppe Zanotti gold metallic ‘Betty’ platform shoes and Beladora jewelry rounded out her look.

    This is why I follow red carpet fashion. QUEEN.

    I actually gasped out loud when I first laid eyes on this dress. The purple and gold make Lupita look so stunning and regal. It’s honestly BDOTY worthy for me.

  3. Christine January 31, 2018 at 11:41 #

    BDOTW AND BDOTY worthy.

  4. Amy January 31, 2018 at 10:51 #

    BDOTW nominee for sure. The purple is gorgeous on her and love the embellishments.
    Versace know their stuff.

    I have no doubt in my mind that I will remember this at the end of the year because it is BDOTY worthy! WOW! We still have 11 months to go but I doubt many women will top this!! It is stunning and perfect and she looks regal and breathtaking!

    I’m gonna be in the minority here. I don’t like this dress. It’s the neckline I don’t like. I think this would’ve been good with just the waist or just the neckline. Or maybe it’s the wrong person. While Lupita likes to take risks, I see this on a popstar as a jumpsuit rather than a gown. I don’t mind the hair.

    • Nat January 31, 2018 at 22:03 #

      I agree. If it wasn’t for the neckline this would be the perfect look.

  7. Schoolbea January 30, 2018 at 20:32 #

    It can’t get more regal than purple silk and gold. This is absolutely stunning: the luxurious fabric, the intricate work of the harness, the original design, the way every single detail, down to the gorgeous rich colour, flatters her enhancing her natural beauty. The icing on the cake is how happy she seems in it. This is Fashion.

  8. Jess January 30, 2018 at 20:03 #

    A vision of beauty and strength. Would probably have overpowered many women, but not Lupita.

  9. Amanda F January 30, 2018 at 19:14 #

    This is EVERYTHING!! A showstopper I love that the structure of the harness is offset by the beautiful flowing purple fabric.L💜VE!!!!

  10. Cássia January 30, 2018 at 19:08 #

    OMG she can do no wrong! Love It!!!

  11. AnderBoBo January 30, 2018 at 19:00 #

    Stunning, gorgeous, flawless!!

  12. Alina January 30, 2018 at 18:44 #

    YES!!! BREATHTAKING. The colour is absolutely stunning on her, the harness is a work of art, the hair is a nice touch and her face is flawless.

  13. EmmaWoodhouse January 30, 2018 at 18:30 #

    This look is remarkable. Adding to my BDOTY list for sure.

  14. TeaAtTwo January 30, 2018 at 17:33 #

    I don’t know if it make my BDOTY list but this is stunning.

  15. Charlotte January 30, 2018 at 17:10 #

    This is perfect. The color is gorgeous on her.
    And I love the hair, it’s unique and perfect on her beautiful face.
    BDOTY contender for sure.

  16. from-chitown January 30, 2018 at 17:05 #

    Thats a magnificent look and she looks stellar in it. Wow – she looks like a queen. This is BDOTY contender for me.

  17. AnnieOh January 30, 2018 at 16:28 #

    She looks like a beautiful queen! Perfect choice for this movie premiere. Obsessed. 🙂

  18. meme January 30, 2018 at 16:16 #

    She’s beautiful and the color is gorgeous but I don’t like the jeweled collar/harness.

  19. cindy January 30, 2018 at 16:00 #

    l love the color of the dress however I not a fan of metal embellishment on the shoulders.

  20. Leandra January 30, 2018 at 15:34 #

    She never looked this good before. BDOTY early contender for me.

    • Schoolbea January 30, 2018 at 20:28 #

      My thoughts exactly. It’s a personal best.

  21. Fiona-Brasil January 30, 2018 at 15:18 #

    Soo pretty!!!!Breathtaking!

  22. Nat39 January 30, 2018 at 15:13 #

    Extra spectacular and premiere worthy! Purple strikes again(!). I understand it’s part of stylization, but the hair does distract me a little bit.bvg

    • Nat39 January 30, 2018 at 15:14 #

      oops, strange “bvg” at the end is accidental..

    • Leandra January 30, 2018 at 15:33 #

      I’ve been in Nigeria in my 20ies. It’s a take on a traditional Yoruba style.

  23. easyBlake January 30, 2018 at 15:08 #

    This was a great choice, but something about the makeup isn’t hitting for me.

  24. Pheephee January 30, 2018 at 15:07 #

    This is super stunning. Such a glorious dress. Love that dramatic harness, love the color, love the flowing skirt……and the hair fits in so perfectly with this. Superb!

    I think I have been waiting for her to stun me again after her first rc season. And this fits the bill.
    This definitely goes on my BDOTY list.

  25. Ala January 30, 2018 at 14:59 #

    Oh my God… chills, shivers… chills again!!!! automatically on my BDOTY list … her haiiiiir… the neckline… her smile!!! yes yes yes!!!!

  26. Giada January 30, 2018 at 14:26 #

    Love it from h2t. She looks gorgeous!

  27. Chris January 30, 2018 at 14:06 #

    Love it, definitely a contender for the BDOTY-list.

  28. Maria S. January 30, 2018 at 14:06 #

    I think that last night’s red carpet was more exciting than the Grammys and SAG Awards put together. There wasn’t ONE look I found boring, everyone took risks, just looking at all the photos make me sigh.

  29. Christopher Teoh Jing Xiang January 30, 2018 at 13:53 #

    It might be early of the year, but I think I just found my BDOTY contender in the form of Lupita Nyong’O. This royal purple Atelier Versace gown with elaborate beaded harness detail is an outfit fit for a queen, and Lupita totally rocked the damn hell out of it like a true pro!! Long live Lupita Nyong’O, long live Queen Nakia!! This is head to toe PERFECTION!! That’s how you SLAY the red carpet like a QUEEN!! We’re not worthy at all, bow down to Queen Lupita!!

  30. JHH January 30, 2018 at 13:52 #

    Makeup = Gorgeous. Dress = Magnificent. Hair = No. Overall = Excellent.

    • Kimma January 30, 2018 at 15:01 #

      +1 She’s slaying this but the hair is detracting from her magnificence.

    What a goddess!! I just wish the background wasn’t so dark so we could see this better but wowza my best dressed of the year so far.

  33. Wodehouse rules January 30, 2018 at 13:24 #

    Love love love the color. The harness overkills.

    • Wodehouse rules January 30, 2018 at 13:33 #

      On second thoughts, the harness makes this!

      • Catherine Kallon January 30, 2018 at 14:10 #

        I like that it took you under 10 mins to change your mind 😀

  34. Mimi January 30, 2018 at 13:00 #

    The silhouette and color of the dress is gorgeous, but the embellishment going up around the neck is too much for me and not flattering. I wish it stopped at the shoulders.

  35. Silvia January 30, 2018 at 12:59 #

    Absolute goddess.

  37. Evita January 30, 2018 at 12:47 #

    She looks gorgeous even though the high neckline and the hairstyle throw off the balance for me, if you look at her from afar her neck has disappeared and the head looks small. Honestly it’s a typical look for Lupita, it’s pretty sparkly chiffon-y(if that is a word) and she can twirl in it. It’s a great first impressions look but the more I look at it, it loses some of its luster.

  38. Helena January 30, 2018 at 12:45 #

  39. Michaboa January 30, 2018 at 12:42 #

    A. LOOK! That dress is stunning on her and the hair is a beautiful sculpture.

  40. Maria F. January 30, 2018 at 12:42 #

    she looks so regal. Amazing. I love everything about it, the colour, the harness, the hairstyle. It is the perfect choice for the premiere and this movie.

  41. james January 30, 2018 at 12:32 #

    Stunning and her hair is a perfect hommage to African queens so it fits the theme accurately. Love it!

  42. Jasmine January 30, 2018 at 12:30 #

    This girl makes me sigh in delight. Every single appearance.

    The dress is stunning on her, she completely rocks it. I can’t get on board with the hair. For me Lupita looks best with a buzz cut.
