“Black Panther” LA Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

So far everything that I have posted about this year have either been about awards shows or runways. Today we have my first movie premiere wish list of 2018. Usually with how jam packed the first two and a half months are I usually don’t get to the movie premieres that are set to take place during awards season, but I told myself I HAD to make wishes for the Black Panther promo tour. I don’t have exact dates for any of the premiere’s, but we know that it will have at least a premiere in LA, and probably one in London. The film itself has already made box office records by completely selling out advance purchase opening night tickets. Even the films star Lupita Nyong’o tried to purchase opening night tickets and she missed out. They sold out in 14 minuites. Admittedly I know very little about the world of Marvel and it’s characters but I know that Chadwick Boseman holds the title role in the film. Chadwick is one of the guys who isn’t afraid to step out of the normative box of your standard take on menswear on the red carpet. Color and print are usually the way he played with style, but I went for something a little different. I think that Chadwick would look amazing in this black Ralph Lauren Fall 2018 Menswear tuxedo which features gold hardware on the safari jacket inspired blazer. This side step of the standard tuxedo is something that takes it down a little more of a casual route than a standard crisp tailored tuxedo. I think that if this look is perfectly tailored and paired with a pair of black leather Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Giuseppe’ slippers featuring a round toe, a brand embossed insole, a flat leather sole, and a metal plaque at the heel that Chadwick will give us a real contender for the Best Dressed Men of the Year list.Danai Gurira is always one I get excited about seeing on the red carpet. She loves avant garde styles and bold colors for her red carpet looks, and I cannot wait to see what she and her stylist Thomas Carter Phillips are cooking up for this promo tour. For the LA premiere I meshed avant garde style and bold color my picking this beautiful multicolored Schiaparelli Fall 2017 Couture strapless gown which features different colored gingham print tiers. I loved seeing this gown float down the runways and since the new collection actually walked the runway in Paris earlier today I think that this option might be seen as archived. Not many people could make this gown work on the red carpet, but I think that Danai is one of the few and I think that for a blockbuster film premiere that it would be a real stand out ensemble. Finish it with a pair of coral suede Steve Madden ‘Teaser’ lucite heel sandals, a defined eye, magenta lips, and a selection of jewelry from IVY New York including a pair of blue spinel and diamond disc earrings and an indigo tourmaline and diamond cocktail ring to really ensure head to toe perfection.I would believe that out of the entire cast of Black Panther that Lupita Nyong’o is probably the one people are buzzing about what she will wear on the red carpet the most. Lupita is a red carpet style queen and I have high expectations for what she will bring to this red carpet. For this red carpet I went down the route of a custom gown inspired by a look from the Cushnie et Ochs Pre-Fall 2018 collection. I would love to see Lupita wearing this multicolored sequin sleeveless body suit which features a fitted silhouette with an asymmetrical cross neckline, keyhole front cut out, and cross strap back paired with a skirt inspired by the lookbooks black draped jersey pencil skirt which features a dramatic and sexy split. I would take the skirt and have it lengthened into a full evening skirt with a train to add even more drama to this look. A full afro hairstyle, a smokey eyes, bold red glossy lips, a pair of yellow Gucci ‘Ilse’ crystal embellished sandals, and statement Irene Neuwirth mismatched fire opal drop earrings are how I would style this look to ensure bold, modern glamour from Lupita.Rounding out this list is Michael B. Jordan, who also doesn’t shy away from a statement suit on the red carpet. I decided to really go for something that is really out there with this metallic silver and black Givenchy Pre-Fall 2018 animal print suit for Michael to wear on this red carpet. I feel like outside of a music awards red carpet that this movie premiere specifically would be the only chance that we would see something this bold on the back of a dude on the red carpet and I definitely think that Michael would take it and really wear it with confidence. One of my mantras in life is “when in doubt be extra,” and this suit is the epitome of that. I would change the styling from the lookbook pairing it with a solid black button down, black skinny tie, and a pair of black patent leather Jimmy Choo star studded lace up dress shoes to really ensure the jacket and pants are the star of this look on Michael.
