The Black Panther L.A. premiere lived up to the hype (to anyone who, like us, took one look at the cast list and shrieked about how ridiculously good the red carpet offerings were going to be). Everyone showed up, as expected, in brilliant colors, bold prints and African or Africa-inspired garments. It was the most colorful, stylish and uniquely interesting movie premiere red carpet we’ve ever seen and we’ll be taking a look at a lot of the looks throughout the day, as if we were covering the Met Gala or something. What can we say? It was THAT good.
Anyway, here is your King, working that Armani:
And it’s pretty freaking fabulous.
It’s kind of hard to judge how a garment like this is “supposed” to fit, but it seems to us the sleeves could’ve been slightly longer and a little looser on him. He doesn’t look like he can clap, let alone raise his arms over his head. But the minor fit issue and the footwear, which doesn’t strike us as the best possible choice for this look (something with gold accents would’ve been great), are the only quibbles we have. He looks amazing. Anything that pushes the menswear paradigm even a little bit away from its restrictively stale, century-old business suiting is a good thing. When it winds up being a beautiful garment on its own merits, it’s a great thing. Men of Hollywood, step up. You don’t have to dress like accountants in order to be considered “dressed up.”
