Marvel Studios’ “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” Los Angeles Premiere

Posted on August 17, 2021

Darlings, the stars came out for one of the things we’ve been missing since March 2020: A big, glitzy, Disney-fueled Marvel superhero movie premiere. In this case, it was the cast of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Marvel’s first attempt to expand the franchise past its Avengers-based origins and also, more notably, the first American superhero movie with a primarily Asian cast. It might be a bit facile of us to make comparisons to Black Panther here, but there’s a similar sense that the cast all really stepped their style game up for this red carpet.

 

 

Andy Le

He hit the red carpet doing a series of flips, kicks, and other impressive martial arts moves, which makes the active-wear ensemble a little more appropriate. We’re not usually given to critiquing this sort of look, but we really do like how well it all coordinates with his hair.

 

 

Awkwafina

Hmm. It’s very much in her preferred style, which is quirkier and edgier than you might expect. We could be talked into liking it if the jacket wasn’t so huge and if the pants didn’t have that silly flap.

 

 

Benedict Wong

We just gave a guy in activewear the pass, so it might seem a bit contradictory to pan this look. Our issue isn’t that it’s casual; it’s that it’s so poorly put together. The pants and the shoes don’t photograph well at all.

 

 

Dallas Liu in Martin Asbjørn

It was definitely a night for enormous suiting. Can’t say any of this is working for us. And we really hope beige suits don’t become a thing.

 

 

Fala Chen in Armani Privé

Ah, there we go. Some good, old-fashioned red carpet eleganza. She’s not rewriting the rule book or anything, but it’s a pretty, if twisty, gown.

 

 

Jayden Zhang in Thom Browne

Perfection.

 

 

Jodi Long

Classic elegance, perfectly rendered. Love the pedicure.

 

 

 

Meng’er Zhang in Alexandre Vauthier

Beautifully elegant and hard to argue with – although we’ll give it a shot. We think the waist sits a bit too high and we think the look could’ve used more impactful jewelry choices. Love the eye makeup, though.

 

 

Ronny Chieng

We don’t love white dinner jackets because they tend to remind us of formal waiters or valets, but it’s hard to argue with this look. The boutonniere absolutely makes it.

 

 

 

Simu Liu in Dzojchen

A gorgeously elegant look that steps up to the moment. Love that it avoids western style conventions while remaining perfectly formal enough for a red carpet. The pendant is a fabulous choice.
