Wakanda Forever, The Black Panther Movie

Good things come to those who wait, Marvel’s Black Panther was worth the wait. The star-studded film delivered more than just a great plot. Let’s get into Wakanda Fashion, hair and why we are “Fan Girling” upcoming actress Letitia Wright. Do not worry, this article is spoiler free for those of you who couldn’t make the weekend premiere.



Black Panther is set in Wakanda, a fictional Nation in Africa. So, it was only right that the costumes captivated the beauty of the continent. We can all thank Costume Designer Ruth Carter for these iconic looks:

We have saved the best for last, Letitia Wright. The 24-year-old beauty stars as Shuri. The Black Panther’s younger sister. In the film she provides comic relief when we did not even know we needed it. Don’t let her being the kid sister of The Black Panther mislead you. Wright’s role is dynamic, as she is responsible for all the technological advancements in Wakanda. Who doesn’t love a woman in charge?  We won’t say too much, we don’t want to spoil the plot. Just watch this interview of Letitia Wright below. We promise you will love her too.
