Check Out the Phenomenal Style at the South African Premiere of 'Black Panther'
These looks are unbeatable.
The excitement over Black Panther can literally be felt all over the world, and especially on the continent.
Today's 'Black Panther' premiere in South Africa only further confirms this. The South African premiere is the second to occur on the continent, following the Kenyan premiere which took place earlier this week in Lupita Nyong'o's hometown of Kisumu.
The Johannesburg edition was a gorgeous affair, filled with impeccably dressed folks showing their Wakandan pride in full spirit.
Many of the outfits seen on the red carpet were unbeatable—seriously, other countries probably would've stepped their game up if they had seen how amazingly dressed some of South Africa's attendees were.
Both Nyong'o and Danai Gurira were in attendance for the occasion, sharing their excitement about "taking BP to the Motherland" on social media the day before.
With the fashion and language used in the movie—real xhosa is spoken briefly in the film—the Southern African influences in Black Panther are unmistakable, and many decided to channel these influences for their looks.
