Danai Gurira In Viktor & Rolf Soir – ‘Black Panther’ World Premiere

Danai Gurira attended the world premiere of Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ on Monday (January 29) in Hollywood, California.

Viktor & Rolf are known for dramatic and feminine silhouettes and this side ruffle gown is a sublime example of the designers aesthetic which is architecturally sound.

The actress is no stranger to bold colours. I love how the pink is girlie and romantic, while the black brings about a more seriousness to the look.

With her short hairstyle we don’t often see Danai play round much with it, but on this occasion she added an embellished headband for a truly feminine flourish.

    After Lupita, Yara, Issa and some of the others attending who were wearing gowns with some movement – this just seems a bit stiff and somewhat dated.

    I’m getting a very strong 90’s Barbie doll vibe from this. The sheen and the fit of the pink fabric are what bring this down IMO.

    I don’t know what I expected from her, but this is not it. Something sleeker? Her face and body just SCREAM for sleek pieces to let them shine.

      Exactly. She is such a beauty. The dress is just too pedestrian and fussy for such fierceness. At least it is a bold color, which looks wonderful.

    It looks kind of cheap and she deserves so much better. If the fabric was flowing instead of cheap, like, from the waist down, this would be greatly improved.

    It’s striking but as others have said should have been better tailored for her figure.

    I love this dress in idea but not execution. Fabric & construction look cheap. Danai deserves better.

    Worst look from her in my opinion.

    The dress doesn’t photograph well from all angles. The picture from left, with the black part, looks so good.

    Pretty dress but… too bad the fit around her waist and stomach is off.

    She is gorgeous, and the idea of the gown is beautiful on her, it’s just the pink fabric looks a bit cheap and the skirt hemmed a bit poorly.

    I really want to love this but it unfortunately falls short for me. The black section brings a bit of modernity to the look but the whole package reads dated to me. On the up side, hair and makeup is gorgeous.

      I agree, plus the pink fabric looks cheap.

      • Giada January 30, 2018 at 12:34 #

        +3 Agreed.

      Sadly have to agree, there is something very prom/bridesmaids about this and the color isn’t helping. But looking forward to seeing her bounce back.

    i like this a lot. It is a juxtaposition between strong and girlie and the ruffle frames her gorgeous face.
