Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ Global Junket Press Conference

After the world premiere, the stars of Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ continued the promo tour with a global junket press conference on Tuesday (January 30) in Beverly Hills, California.

Angela Bassett: Following her glowing fringe moment, the actress switched gears with this Dent de Man Spring 2016 suit from the label named for a mountain in West Africa’s Ivory Coast. This bit of relevance, combined with what was a bold translation of traditional menswear in an all-over batik print, made for such an impactful look.

Danai Gurira: I loved Danai’s world premiere entrance, and even though this Altuzarra Pre-Fall 2018 dress was far more subtle, it was lovely for a press conference. I like the slight fit-and-flare shape as well as the tonal bustier structure to add sophisticated allure to the design.

Lupita Nyong’o: Also offering up a patterned ensemble that took a completely different direction from her regal premiere gown, Lupita looked to the signature prints of designer Mary Katrantzou. The flirty silhouette of this Spring 2018 frock, with its shorter length and kick pleats, offered a sense of youthful exuberance—although it could also be called a bit twee, too. Did you miss the belt?

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.

Lupita Nyong’o In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2018 SAG Awards

Lupita Nyong’o was one of the presenters at the 2018 SAG Awards on Sunday (January 21) in LA.

We typically see the actress in jubilant colours, but I actually didn’t miss any of those bright hues in this majestic, liquid-silver Ralph & Russo Fall 2017 Couture design.

The drama was delivered in the feathered overlay skirt that floated away from the column dress to add a spirit of ethereal whimsy.

Sparkling earrings and metallic makeup rounded out the elegant look.

Lupita Nyong’o In Balmain – The National Board Of Review Annual Awards Gala

Lupita Nyong’o put on a twinkling display at the 2018 The National Board Of Review Annual Awards Gala on Tuesday (January 9) in New York City, joining Gal Gadot and Greta Gerwig.

I normally love the actress for her joyful use of colour, but these Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 separates were dazzling.

The designer’s signature sharp shoulders with button detailing toughened up the fitted crop and maxi skirt.

Removing the bolder accessories from the lookbook gave the ensemble a sleek finish and put more of an emphasis on the surface detailing.

Dana Rebecca Designs earrings and her flowing updo completed the look brilliantly.

Lupita Nyong’o In Halpern – ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ LA Premiere

I was delighted to see Lupita Nyong’o back on the red carpet for the ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ premiere on Saturday (December 9) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Halpern Spring 2018 green goddess dress for the occasion styled with gold accessories.

From reading your comments on Diane Kruger’s Halpern look, it appears that some of you already have Halpern-sequin-fatigue.

As a sequin addict, I’m all for this strapless dress which is a modern nod to the bold shapes of 80s styles.
