It’s still amazing to us how well the principal cast members of Black Panther are managing to find high-fashion versions of the film’s costumes to wear on the red carpet this month.
From the breastplate-like bodice to the Dora Milaje-esque high neckline, to the use of gold trim to direct the eye, the design feels exactly like something you would see in the film – except for the lack of color, which is in solidarity with the “Time’s Up” movement, as you can see by the rather unfortunate placement of the pin. It’s a beautiful, dramatic look, served up with yet another gorgeously styled head from Miss Lupita’s team. The earrings, hair, and brow game are all TO DIE. She’s serving goddess from the neck up.
We can’t say we’re in love with the hip things, but with everything else going on here, it tends play into the light Afrofuturist vibe she’s working.
