Black Panther is ruling the box office and the red carpet, as proven by Lupita Nyong’o’s stunning gown.
The brilliant black-and-gold dress was a red carpet standout, and Nyong’o gave us another reason to love it via Twitter. Alongside a picture of herself from before the show, she wrote, “Vibranium by Versace. #Oscars #Wakanda Forever”
Nyong’o wasn’t the only Black Panther star channeling the Marvel blockbuster at the Academy Awards. The king himself, Chadwick Boseman, also had a Wakandan look that Twitter loved.
Black Panther got multiple shout-outs during the Academy Awards broadcast, including during host Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue. “[Our] plan is we’re going to shine a light on a group of outstanding and positive films each of which got crushed by Black Panther,” he joked. Wakanda Forever, indeed!
