The dress code for the Black Panther movie premiere called for “royal attire,” and boy, did the actors step up. Red-carpet fashion can be predictable, but if everyone dressed this boldly at more premieres, the world would be a different, more beautiful place.
Many fans were thrilled to see actors embrace traditional African clothing — from Daniel Kaluuya in a kanzu (a traditional dress in Uganda) to David Oyelowo’s dashiki.
As for the men, they wore blazers and pants in various shades of green, purple, and gold. But the prize for best-dressed goes to either Donald Glover for his head-to-toe orange suit or Daniel Kaluuya and hiskanzu.
