Show Up and Show Off, Top 5 looks from the new Lion King Premiere

Hey guys,

Last weekend was highlighted by the long awaited  premiere of Lion King ,  a real-life remake of the initial movie released in 1994. Us 90s babies were super stoked because we will really look for any excuse to rewatch a favourite childhood film. The movie was graced by the star studded list of Beyonce, Childish Gambino, John Kani, Seth Rogen, Shahadi Wright, Amy Sedaris; they really had the best of the best.

 

This isn’t a review of the movie (rumor has it that it sucks btw) fortunately or unfortunately. We are here to strictly discuss the drip.

Kama kawaida, the women on the red carpet were looking phenomenal! Patrick Starr, Marsai Martin, Megan Markle, Rochelle Humes. A-game tupu.

 

But did you see the men at the premiere? A break-away from the norm black/blue tux was definitely a breath of fresh air. We rarely ever discuss how stunning guys look at these fashionable events and their trend setting abilities. This is that rare occasion where I highlight my top looks: Men’s edition. Let’s dive right in and see how these kings brought it at the lion king premiere:

 

                           

 

Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) plays Simba in the Lion King remake, dressed and styled by Gucci, he works the white suit with red checks and maroon shoes to finish off the look. We love this look that channels fashion from the late 70s and it was impressive for him to not wear anything Ankara and be original.

                       

 

Armaan Malik, one of my favourites, looking absolutely ravishing in this gold and beige ensemble. The tones are work well together, the black dress-shirt calms down the outfit without stealing the attention from it. Armaan is all about the culture being dressed and styled by Akshay Tyagi, a celebrity fashion stylist from his country, India.

 

                               

                                 

If you’re a fan of Star, the series, then you definitely remember how much Cassie was into Lance Gross. I mean, the man is all shades of fine and more. And guess who he brought along to the Lion King premiere, His adorable daughter! Channeling their inner lions in these matching ankara ‘fits, this daddy-daughter pair is to die for! Melanin popping and we respect it.

 

Speaking of African vibes and melanin popping, the Kani family came through with all the Ankara drip this premiere needed. The fabric, the precision in pattern, the uniqueness in design. The  whole apparel was exceedingly sensational! Let’s face it, Kenyan tailors could never… not with how they don’t respect deadlines.

                              Black tuxedos were in plenty. Unequaled black tuxedos? Few to none. Chris Tucker’s was among the few. Patterned suit jacket with an embellished collar gave this outfit the oomph it needed. Radiating both a calm and elegant energy. Easiest and simplest way to make your plain tux pop. But seriously guys, were over the black tuxes so you’re only getting off the hook this once.

 

These men definitely brought their A-game for the premiere and are certainly not afraid of showing off. I hope all fine-looking men reading this are not afraid of taking these subtle hints we’re throwing at them to dress up without shame.

 

That’s all from All things Kiki fashion column this month. As always, your feedback will be highly appreciated. What were your top looks during this premiere?

 

Love and light lovies!
