Hollywood is grief-stricken. One of its most promising stars — Chadwick Boseman — has returned to the sky on August 28. Known for his roles portraying black icons from Jackie Robinson (in 2013’s “42”) and James Brown (in 2014’s “Get on Up”), he rose to stardom after taking the role of Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first black superhero Black Panther.
On screen, he brings humane sensibility and compassionate strength to King T’Challa. Outside, Boseman is an inspiring human and a charming star. But if there’s one thing the man Chadwick Boseman and King T-Challa share, it’s their sense of style. If you closely watch Black Panther, you can see our dear royal superhero has more costume changes in one film than Captain America has had in all his entire portfolios. On red carpet and promotional duties, Boseman is suave, bold and experimental in his style. Working closely with his stylist Ashley Weston, his appearance on the red carpet turned up the heat anywhere from the Golden Globes to Academy Awards and Met Gala, earning him a recognition as one of the best-dressed men in Hollywood.
Here are Chadwick Boseman’s 5 most memorable looks.
