Black Panther comes to theaters February 16, but the world premiere in Los Angeles was last night and it was everything! Chadwick Boseman brought his regal energy, Angela Bassett charmed with her age-less beauty, Lupita Nyong’o stunned the crowd with her luminous presence–the entire red (actually purple) carpet was a royal African slay.

Beyond the talented cast of Black Panther, much of Black Hollywood showed up and showed out to support the film. Find some of your favs in the gallery.

I love this look. The print is fantastic and sophisticated and the simple gold cuff is just the right accent.
