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?

    Danai’s dress is okay, a touch boring but okay. Lupita’s dress does not work on her. It’s is way too twee for her. This could work on Kiernan or Yara. I want to like Angela because I love the fabric and the suit looks great on the guy who broke up the pattern with a white shirt on the runway but the suit is really not at all flattering on her.

    Nope to all of them. Way too much pattern in Angelas.

    Angela looks amazing. Danai is boring me. Lupita’s look is sub par for her usual standards and quite unsuccessful.

    Love Danai here.

    Angela’s suit feels like a sister to an Alexander McQueen print from a while back–it has that same kind of stained glass effect. Very cool.
    I like Danai’s dress but Lupita’s does feel too juvenile.

    i love Angela Basset’s look.

    Danai looks great, but somewhat staid among the vibrant prints.

    I am not in love with the scuba diver top of Lupita’s dress, but i love the colourful pattern in the skirt.

    Angela Bassett looks amazing in that suit! The touch of orange coming from the shoes is lovely.

    I thought I recognized the fabric as a Vlisco fabric. Turns out it is. Fun fact: Vlisco is a Dutch company (located 17 km from my house 😉 ) that specializes in fabrics made especially for the African market. In West-Africa a custom made dress made with a Vlisco fabric is quite the status symbol.

      Yes indeed. Dutch wax print was created to rival the Batik print originating in Indonesia. They initially wanted to flood the Dutch market with cheaper versions, but they did not sell very well during the dutch occupation of Indonesia. They did, however, find their market in West African countries.

      Yes.. those print on Angela is definitely NOT a batik print. I am Indonesian so I can assure you that it is not batik.
