Lupita Nyong’o In Kevin Mayes & Danai Gurira In The Row – ‘Black Panther’ Johannesburg Premiere

As the ‘Black Panther’ promo tour marched along, Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira were both in attendance at the Johannesburg premiere on Friday (February 16)—both in looks that vibrantly reflected the heritage of their South Africa setting.

Lupita Nyong’o: The fiery hue of this Kevin Mayes design, not to mention the gold embroidered cutouts, were so striking, as Lupita returned to the bold colours we know and love. More allure came by virtue of the hip-high dual front slits—more visible in movement—an intriguing counterpoint to the sweeping nature of the skirt.

Danai Gurira: The statement piece of this loose and languid navy gown was the bold, textural neck piece as well as her cuffs that added such a relevant flourish to the simple halter design.

    Danais outfit looks better of the two. Lupitas looks a bit cheap because of the gold thing.
    Danais has some interest.

    Danai looks lovely. I don’t like Lupita’s dress. The gold bodice looks cheap and dated.

    Both of them look stunning. Red is an amazing colour for Lupita and this is my favourite look from Danai during this promo tour.

    I adore the colour of Lupita’s dress and mixed with gold it is stunning. However, the large gold pieces in the front are unnecessary and fully distracting. Danai…. well she is just the coolest chicest girl in town! Love.

    Lupita looks fab in red but Danai for the win. That neckpiece, cuffs and regal bearing are just everything.

    This is perhaps the best Danai has looked so far, and she’s had a lot of hits!

    I can’t say I love Lupita’s gown, the color is divine but the gold piece on the bust looks cumbersome and kind of random, if it was just the gold belt-detail this would have been one for the books.

    Danais’ look could well be the first time that I have ever truly loved a piece from The Row. She looks fantastic. I am not a fan of Lupita’s. It looks like overwhelms her with the top IMO working better for her than the bottom.

    I think they both look amazing, but Danai might actually be my favorite here.

    Been waiting for more black/African-(American) designers for this tour. Another film I might have said the gold piece was too large but I think her it works well. Danai’s necklace was perfect choice too, making the look.

    I don’t like Lupita’s dress, the gold thing looks too heavy and cheap.
    Plus, I think the whole look needed someone taller.

    Danai looks gorgeous, love her dress and her styling.

  12. Dana February 20, 2018 at 21:33 #

    I think Lupita looks out of this world amazing.

    I don’t like lupita’s dress at all. It looks cumbersome.
