‘Black Panther’ World Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

Posted by Rachel Watkins Comments

The highly anticipated world premiere of Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’ was on Monday (January 29) in Hollywood, California, which drew a veritable constellation of actresses to support the film’s stars Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, and Nabiyah Be.

Sydelle Noel: The actress opted for a golden goddess look in this shimmering Marc Bouwer gown, by which the cutouts made it a sleekly modern interpretation. The gold dress was one thing, but she channeled Vanessa Bell in ‘Coming To America’ even more so with her Imani-approved high ponytail hair.

Chloe Bennett: The high-shine aesthetic continued with Chloe’s Elisabetta Franchi Fall 2017 embellished gown, which wasn’t anything we haven’t seen. Yet, I like that she let the gown have its time in the spotlight by keeping her accessories -which included Neil J. Rodgers ‘Stella’ shoes and Monica Vinader jewels – to a minimum.

Cobie Smulders: Also getting the glitz memo, Cobie glittered in a Markarian Pre-Fall 2018 grock that offered a fresher silhouette by virtue of its sharp lines and side slit. The minimalistic styling – Jimmy Choo ‘Ellipse’ clutch and ‘Minny’ sandals – also served her quite well here, as the dress was the main attraction.

Chloe Bailey, Halle Bailey: As per usual, the teen sisters coordinated their looks in these hyper-embellished creations, with Chloe in a hybrid On Aura Tout Vu catsuit-gown and Halle in a hybrid sculpture-dress also by On Aura Tout Vu, was styled with Dena Kemp jewels. I like how they fully committed to the looks from head to toe, finishing them with the dramatic shoes—although I think Chloe especially looked far beyond her 19 years, something I will party attribute to her beautiful, yet more mature, African-inspired braided ’do.

Olivia Holt: I like the more subversive, carefree edge that Olivia brought to this Alice McCall Spring 2018 ruffled, metallic dress with the Pedro Garcia booties and minimal beauty look.

Marsai Martin: The young ‘Black-ish’ starlet was every bit of sweet and chic in this girlish Maje frock that I loved for its textural blue effect and flared skirt.

Angel Parker: This beaded, multicolour Jovani gown, together with Angel’s long braid, was a glam tribute to African heritage inspiration that many others likewise reference at the premiere.

Storm Reid: Even though this sleek look could be deemed a bit serious for the 14-year-old starlet, the cropped top and fringed detail throughout added a youthful zing as did her colourful eye makeup. I love her sculpted updo, which was such a striking way to style her long braids.
