Lupita Nyong’o In Balmain – ‘Black Panther’ London Premiere

Lupita Nyong’o joined Florence Kasumba, Letitia Wright, Leona Lewis, and Danai Gurira on the black carpet for the ‘Black Panther’ London premiere on Thursday (February 8).

She set the bar so high at the world premiere with her regal Atelier Versace gown. But, rather than go head to head with that uniquely striking, colour-saturated look, she continued to have a moment with metallics in this Balmain gown that shimmered in silver embellishment.

As this was Balmain, the strong, sultry tone was duly noted in the plunge neckline and the high slit.

However, it was her styling that made the look a Lupita one, with a glam-bam one-two punch in her diamond De Beers jewels and bold beauty and hair.

Lupita Nyong’o In Elie Saab & Ralph & Russo – ‘Black Panther’ Seoul Press Conference and Premiere

Before the London premiere on Thursday, the cast of ‘Black Panther’ headed to South Korea to promote the film in Seoul today (February 5).

Press Conference: Some might look at this Elie Saab black and gold lurex sweater and matching pleated skirt and feel a bit underwhelmed, but that’s probably because we’re so used to seeing the actress in bold colours. I love how the pleats create drama with every sway and that we’re seeing a variety of styles from Lupita during this promo tour. Jewels from EFFY and Sara Weinstock, plus emerald Christian Louboutin ‘Booton MJ’ velvet pumps accessorized her look.

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.

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.
