The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever worldwide premiere happened on Wednesday, October 26 in Los Angeles, California, and attracted a ton of top-tier fashion.

The official worldwide premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever took place on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California. Hollywood's best and brightest attended the event, including all the main figures from the movie, from Lupita Nyong'o to Danai Gurira to Ryan Coogler. The premiere was bittersweet: with the cast honoring Chadwick Boseman, who died after a four-year battle with colon cancer in 2020.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled to be released in the United States on November 11, 2022. And it is already receiving rave reviews online so far.

The premiere also saw many fashion-forward actors and actresses grace the red carpet. Here are some of the best looks we saw.
