‘Black Panther’ New York Promo Tour Menswear Roundup

As the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour jets along in New York City, two of the movie’s most stylish men have continued to make waves, joining Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o.

Chadwick Boseman: At the Marvel Studios Presents: Black Panther Welcome To Wakanda on Monday (February 12) during New York Fashion Week, Chadwick showed another side to his style personality in this Fear Of God Fall 2017 outfit styled with Public School x Nike sneakers and David Yurman jewelry. The consummate style crush can even pull off this cool-kid, urban attitude with such polished flair.

Michael B. Jordan: Joining Chadwick there, Michael showed off his style prowess, too, in this Prada ensemble paired with Christian Louboutin ‘Roadie’ boots. At first, I found myself questioning the shades of tan, khaki, and burnt orange. But, somehow the different color pieces formed their own compelling mosaic that totally made sense.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Gabriela Hearst – ‘Black Panther’ New York Screening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw stepped out at the ‘Black Panther’ New York screening on Tuesday (February 13) where she joined Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o.

The actress appears to have been inspired by the film’s costumes as she wore a black Gabriela Hearst Fall 2018 dress.

She typically gravitates towards colour. When she does opt for black, there are normally some details to enliven the inky base.

Here, there is the blue cording down the front and sides and the soft folds. I fear some might interpret the effect as messy, but had this been in a different fabric, the simple slip would have lacked presence.

Demonstrating a knack for subtle details, her eyes were awash with a bright eyeshadow to play up the trim.

Danai Gurira In Dion Lee & Sies Marjan – ‘Black Panther’ New York Promo Tour

Danai Gurira continued on the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour in New York with Lupita Nyong’o. First, she attended the Marvel Studios Presents: Black Panther Welcome To Wakanda showcase during New York Fashion Week on Monday (February 12). Secondly, she stepped out at the screening on Tuesday (February 13).

Black Panther Welcome To Wakanda New York Fashion Week Showcase: Colour has been a key element during the tour, and this Dion Lee Spring 2018 ensemble plays into it. It retains a streamlined finish, despite the folds and layering, thanks to the body-skimming silhouette. She enhanced the hardware in the belting details with metallic sandals and jewellery. It cuts an elegant finish, but part of me wants the boots from the runway version.

Lupita Nyong’o In Cushnie et Ochs, Gucci & Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Black Panther’ New York Promo Tour

As the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour starts to wind down, Lupita Nyong’o took to the red carpet on three occasions this week.

Black Panther Welcome To Wakanda New York Fashion Week Showcase: After a heavy dose of metallics in Seoul and London, Lupita was back to her colourful best in Cushnie et Ochs. I like the bold hue of her two-piece Pre-Fall 2018 look and the African-inspired styling, but I’m gonna struggle to forgive the length of those trousers.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Stella McCartney – ‘Irreplaceable You’ New York Screening

Gugu Mbatha-Raw struck a pose at the ‘Irreplaceable You’ New York screening on Thursday (February 8).

The simple short-sleeved silhouette of her Stella McCartney Resort 2018 dress is brought to life with the shimmering landscape bead work.

Her darker, simplified version allows the design to pop without any competing elements.

Surface detailing on dresses is certainly nothing new, but it’s not often that we get a design featuring a scene. This is like an artwork crafted with needle and thread.

If it seems familiar, Pink previously wore a longer style to the 2017 Fashion Awards.

Elle Fanning In The Row – ‘The Alienist’ Sundance Film Festival Screening

Joining her sister, Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning was also at ‘The Alienist’ Sundance Film Festival screening on Friday (January 19) in Park City, Utah.

I’m sure many won’t be surprised to learn she was wearing The Row, given the long, roomy silhouette of the look that’s so characteristic of the label.

On the one hand, I was wishing for slightly more shape and definition to the long macramé fringed dress and equally long overcoat.

On the other, I was more glad for the enchanting, powder-blue hue of that coat that took top billing and radiated beautifully against her complexion.

The cowboy boots may also raise an eyebrow, but they were undoubtedly chosen on behalf of the Park City location.

Dakota Fanning In Adam Selman & Prabal Gurung – ‘The Alienist’ Sundance Film Festival Screening & The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

As Dakota Fanning continues to promote ‘The Alienist,’ she was at the Sundance Film Festival screening on Friday (January 19) in Park City, Utah before jetting to New York City for ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’.

‘The Alienist’ Screening: Thus far, her promo tour has consisted in black, white, or red looks, but for Sundance she wore an Adam Selman Spring 2018 blue plaid dress that was befitting of her Park City locale—that is, once she styled it with a black turtleneck and over-the-knee boots. I love the playful, trompe l’oeil seams and bow that gave the dress a youthful flair. I do think a chic ponytail or bun would have been a nice change here.
