Lupita Nyongo poses at the premiere of Black Panther in Los Angeles, California.

While the upcoming Black Panther film is centred around one of Marvel’s greatest male superheroes, it was the ladies who dominated the night at its recent premiere in Los Angeles, California. The dress-code for the night called for “royal attire”. And the stars turned up in their fiercest, most regal outfits to mark the highly-anticipated film’s release (set for Feb 15).

Here’s a look at the top five looks.

Issa Rae

Rae’s Rosie Assoulin Resort 2018 dress shimmered on the red carpet. The shiny rainbow panelling's colours provided just a right amount of contrast to the minimal white dress.

Looking demure, but no less elegant, was Thompson, wearing Ellie Saab. The design is from the Pre-Fall 2018 collection, pairing a flowy tunic with beaded cigarette trousers.

Bassett stood tall in a bright yellow Naeem Khan jumpsuit. “It’s all about colours, all about heat, and I think we’re bringing that tonight on the purple carpet,” she said, when speaking to the media.
