Our standout looks on the Black Panther red carpet

Black PantherThis weekend marked the South African premiere of the movie Black Panther. Set in a fictional African country Wakanda. The film has been celebrated for being one of the first big budget studio productions to have a black super hero, black director, and predominantly black cast.
The film is directed by Ryan Coogler, and features an A-list cast includes Chadwick Boseman, Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, and Hollywood veterans Angela Bassett and Forrest Whitaker. Like, with any comic book inspired fantasy film, fans love to show their support by dressing up in costume.
Hash tags like #WakandaCameToSlay , #BlackPantherChallenge have been doing the rounds on social media.
At the US box office opening of the Marvel film, fans came out in droves donning their best black panther inspired looks. Outfits ranged from wonderful to what the…heck.
The film’s South African cinema opening was no different. From the minute Black Twitter created the #BlackPantherSA and #BlackPantherChallengeSA , Wakanda inspired looks began streaming in.
So in true GLAMOUR fashion, we thought we’d share a few snaps of the best local Black Panther looks, for your viewing pleasure.
