Lupita Nyong’o stole the spotlight at the European premiere of Black Panther on Thursday night (08Feb18).
For the debut of the new Marvel superhero movie held at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, the actress stepped out in a Balmain black gown covered in silver sequins.
The number featured both a plunging neckline and thigh-high split, which Lupita chose to accessorise with simple black sandals and plenty of bling, including De Beers’ Phenomena Glacier Earrings – which are set with around 10 carats of diamonds.
To complement the futuristic look, Lupita had a swipe of silver eyeshadow on her eyelids, a touch of dark red lipstick and a silver ribbon woven through her hair.
But the 34-year-old wasn’t the only celebrity in attendance on the night, with Danai Gurira looking stunning in a black dress embellished with a peacock motif by Jean-Louis Sabaji. The actress complemented her eye-catching ensemble with Christian Louboutin shoes and Ara Vartanian jewellery.
While Letitia Wright turned heads in a strapless gold minidress from Rami Al Ali, which she matched with pink Ade Samuel shoes, and Florence Kasumba dazzled in sheer dress studded with pink and red teardrop-shapes, which she wore with strappy white Louboutin platform heels.
Among the guests to show their support for the film was singer Leona Lewis, who opted for a dramatic black Stephane Rolland gown with gold design attached to the front, and Chewing Gum star Michaela Coel, who donned a striking red and turquoise printed dress with deep neckline.
The men of the movie dressed up the bash too; lead star Chadwick Boseman wore a stylish black Givenchy ensemble, and Daniel Kaluuya sported a classic Gucci suit.
Other stars to attend the premiere included Michael B. Jordan, Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis, and John Boyega, as well as musicians such as Emeli Sande, Stormzy, Naughty Boy and The Black Eyed Peas – will. i.am, apl.de.ap, and Taboo.
