The Top 5 Best Dressed at the ‘Black Panther’ European Premiere

The “Black Panther” promotional tours are continuing to set the fashion bar high for red carpet premieres. This might be one of the toughest best dressed list we have ever put together, considering all the celebrity attendees brought their style A-game to the Marvel superhero film’s European premiere in London on Thursday night.

"Black Panther" stars Florence Kasumba, Andy Serkis, Michael B. Jordan, Letitia Wright, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Daniel Kaluuya, Danai Gurira, and Martin Freeman with director Ryan Coogler“Black Panther” stars Florence Kasumba, Andy Serkis, Michael B. Jordan, Letitia Wright, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Daniel Kaluuya, Danai Gurira, and Martin Freeman with director Ryan Coogler at the European premiere of the film held at Eventim Apollo in London, England, on Ferbruary 8, 2018.

1. Lupita Nyong’o in a sparkling Balmain gown and custom Alexandre Birman sandals.

Lupita Nyong’o looked phenomenal in a black velvet Balmain long-sleeved gown encrusted all over with sparkling crystals. She showed leg and her custom Alexandre Birman suede ankle-strap sandals through the thigh-high split of her dress. She added even more shine with De Beers “Phenomena Glacier” 10.44-carat diamond earrings, silvery eyeshadow, and a silver string tied around the center knot in her hair.

2. Danai Gurira in a Jean-Louis Sabaji peacock gown with Christian Louboutin heels.

Hot on the custom heels of Lupita is co-star Danai Gurira, who was scene-stealing in a Jean-Louis Sabaji Spring 2018 Couture gown featuring a feathered and sequined peacock motif. Other lesser beings would be lost in such a tricky dress, but Danai pulled it off effortlessly with a bad-ass patterned buzzcut to boot. The 39-year-old actress complemented her couture look with Ara Vartanian jewelry and Christian Louboutin sandals.

3. Florence Kasumba in a Jenny Packham sequined gown and Christian Louboutin “Golden Blake” Platforms.

Florence Kasumba was a force to be reckoned with herself in a Jenny Packham Spring 2017 gown. While the German-Ugandan actress’ frock was more delicate in its sheer fabrication and candy-like pink-and-red embellishments, she still served face just as fierce as her other female co-stars.

There was a bit of a toe overhang situation going on in Florence’s Christian Louboutin “Golden Blake” platform sandals, though, and the chain-fringed heels were a busy pairing with her colorful ensemble.

4. Letitia Wright in a Rami Al Ali gold strapless dress and Ade Samuel “Sophia” sandals.

Letitia Wright didn’t don a long evening gown, but she still evoked royalty in her Rami Al Ali Fall 2017 strapless dress that featured a regal beaded design at the waist. She paired her look with diamond drop earrings and Ade Samuel “Sophia” ankle-strap sandals that picked up the red-colored cabochon embellishments on her dress.

5. Chadwick Boseman in a Givenchy tiger-striped suit and monk-strap shoes.

Last but certainly not the least of our best dressed is the Black Panther himself, Chadwick Boseman. Some guys say they wouldn’t be caught dead wearing animal print anything, but the 41-year-old actor pulled off a tiger-striped long blazer with aplomb.

A Givenchy logo dress shirt, slim, flat-front pants, and black-patent double-monk-strap shoes completed his Givenchy Spring 2018 navy ensemble.
