They are the cast of the Number one movie in the World! Black Panther’s Royals T’challa, King of  Wakanda, the great Mbaku, the fearless and devoted Leader of the Dora Milaje General Okoye and the Beautiful Nakia (oh you thought i was going to give you their other fake names…hell no!) hit the Red Carpet at the 2018 Oscar Awards and oozed of sophistication and Royalty!
See more of them and their amazing outfits from the 2018 Oscar Red Carpet. #BalckExcellence

How else do you attend the 2018 Academy Awards than as King T’challa! For the awards, the 40-year-old American Native hit the Oscars Red Carpet out of his catsuit and in his King-like Givenchy suit. This is how you remind the world, that in Wakanda, everything is super-cool and super-fly. He looked extremely dapper in his Tuxedo, which is from Givency’s Spring 2018 Couture Collection. Great Choice King and THOSE SHOESSSS are Amazing. You have to be from Wakanda to effectively pull-off the Zip shoes. 

 His outfit is basically a Topcoat with an embroidered silk lapel and some pants to match. Styled by Celebrity Stylist Ashley Weston, who by the way, has been doing a remarkable job at styling the Black Panther.
Lupita Nyong’o! She is Royalty…clearly. She makes anything and everything look good. She hit the Red Carpet in gold Atelier Versace. She called the look ”Vibranium by Versace”. The gold and black shimmery number, featured a thigh-high slit and a one beaded shoulder which ran across the seam of the dress. She paired her golden look with some black strappy Alexandre Birman shoes. 
Like i said, Lupita makes everything look good…even glasses. She hit the stage at the 2018 Oscars to present an award along side comedian Kumail Nanjiani sporting her reading glasses. We cant have her out here, pulling a Steve Harvey on us now can we?! 

 up close all smiles Lupita. 
The most interesting part about Lupita’s entire look for the Oscars was probably her hair or should i say her crown. According to the superstar, her crown was inspired by the the Amasunzu hairstyles of Rwanda (you might want to google and see what it looks like in real time). 

General Okoye! She is one stunning woman isn’t she? Not many women have the confidence to walk the Red Carpet at the Academy Awards in skin-cut hair but she…she does. Dania Gurira graced the red carpet wearing a champagne Gabriela Hearst strapless number, some Sergio Rossi shoes and accessorized with some simple and sophisticated crystal jewelry. 
Danai looked stunning head-to-toe literally. She took a bolder step with her Wakanda inspired hair-cut, engraving or should i say spraying a white carved out shape at the side of her head. I dont know what that stands for, but whatever it is Okoye, i know its for our best protection and safety. 
Simple but yet so elegant
The Two Ebony beauties posed along side one another looking completely stunning. 
 And now to the man who “Got Out” and ran straight to a concealed country in Africa, Daniel Kaluuya! Up until this very moment , he had been one to look out for on every Red Carpet,  so i was a bit unhappy (keyword “a bit”) about his choice of outfit for his big Oscar Night. Regardless, he is a black handsome man and he made the colored tux work!

Blessed is he! He held unto the leading ladies of the night Lupita and Danai, been over-looked by the extremely dapper and handsome Winston Duke. Winston is giving him one of his “Are you done” looks again.

We got the privilege of seeing Mbaku aka Winston Duke, before he hit the Red Carpet and boy did he look good! The Actor kept it bossy in a black Etro tuxedo, which he accessorized with a Scarf…i know what you are thinking, he is a scarf man #FashionMR. He finished up his dapper look with some shinny patent shoes by Tods. There are no flaws here. Does he have a brother? Asking for a friend on her dying bed.

There you have it guys…Wakanda Forever! They had the very best looks at the 2018 Oscars and the very best movie of 2018 so far.
