Favourite costumes from Black Panther movie

Today I would like to show you my favourite looks from the Black Panther movie. As you can read in my previous posts concerning Black Panther, one of my favourite things about this movie is the African inspired wardrobe. These costumes are the work of costume designer genius Ruth E. Carter, who had over a 100 people to help her realise the designs for the movie.

This genius designer was inspired by various African tribes and the symbolic triangle, as she explains it. “There is a huge misunderstanding about what Africa is”, she says. “Most people think it’s just one big thing”.  Continue reading “Symbolic African costumes designed for Black Panther”

Anna Wintour look a like in the latest Captain America movie

That’s what I called her in the movie. On g4tv.com I’ve read that Jenny has actually already been in the MCU with a small role as a World Security Council member in The Avengers. Since I didn’t see that movie yet (I know, shame on me), I can’t comment on her looks there. In real life Jenny Agutter doesn’t look like Anna Wintour though.
