Darlings, we fear before this Black Panther poledance is over, you’re going to be crazy-sick of hearing us say this, but…
CAN YOU EVEN STAND HOW FIERCE THIS IS?
It’s interesting to note just how simple that gown is, relative to the wildly embellished and patterned styles she tends to favor. Obviously the sleeve treatments take it somewhere unique and bold, perfectly suited to her tastes, but the main body of the gown is pretty basic. That’s not a criticism. It’s just that she took the slightly odd route (for her) of going simple in her garment choice and using the accessories and jewelry to give the look a point and a direction. Without the hat and jewelry, this would be a perfectly acceptable red carpet gown with a fun and unique twist. But Miss Janelle gets through with it and comes out the other side an Empress.
The brief for this red carpet really was, “BLACK HOLLYWOOD: Come to the Black Panther premiere dressed like royalty,” wasn’t it? We kinda figured it would be the major theme, but we’re pleasantly surprised by how much everyone seems to have stuck to it.
