You Need to See How Regal Everyone Looked at the Black Panther Premiere

Slay us with this royal fashion!

Last night, the kingdom of Wakanda descended upon Hollywood for the premiere of Black Panther, the newest superhero film that has not only already sold out, but outsold all of the previous Marvel films. But this wasn’t your usual red carpet. First of all, it was purple for the occasion, and second, these actors decided that if they were going to play African royalty, they were going to embrace it and dress like African Kings and Queens for the big premiere. As a result, the purple carpet was filled with bold prints, vivid colors, and eye-catching looks. Click through the gallery below to see what all of your faves wore.
