'Black Panther' European Premiere: The Best Dressed On The Red Carpet

Lupita Nyong’o's gown glistened as she walked the red carpet.

We knew the ‘Black Panther’ European premiere was going to be a feast for the eyes after the kaleidoscope of colour the cast treated us to at the US premiere.

And Lupita Nyong’o surpassed our expectations in a gown that shimmered as she walked the red carpet at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on Thursday 8 January.

An animal kingdom theme emerged with Chadwick Boseman and Daniel Kaluuya paying homage to big cats in their suits.

Here are the stand out dresses and suits on the night:

Nyong’o, who plays Nakia in the movie, teamed a gown that glistened like a constellation with what is quickly shaping up to be one of the hottest beauty trends of this awards season: bold block eyeshadow.

Daniel Kaluuya

Kaluuya, who plays W’Kabi, honoured the big cat theme with his tie - although he went for a tiger rather than a panther.

Danai Gurira

Gurira’s reference to the animal kingdom was far less subtle than her costars’. The actress, who plays Okoye, looked majestic with the plumage of a regal bird spilling down one arm.
