Last night was the LA Global Premiere for Avengers: Infinity War, and you know what that means: morning after red carpet pics! There’s something extra satisfying about seeing the fashion from a superhero movie premiere, mostly because it follows so many months of set pics and posters showing off all the spandex, capes, and other costume elements that will bring those characters to life. We know we’ll see heroes assembling on the big screen — but do any of them look like heroes in real life?
Answer? Yes. Or at least one of them does…
Letitia Wright. Witness:
Guys. GUYS. I can’t even right now. That suit is my new favorite Avenger. Like, let’s say Thanos was an actual threat to humanity. All we’d have to do as a planet is reproduce that outfit, stick it on mannequins, and set them in fields like the most fabulous scarecrows ever.
The pattern. The fit. The gauzy shirt with the bow and skirt thing. Take a closer look and the whole ensemble and really let its magnificence wash over you:
And here’s the thing — the outfit is outstanding, obviously. But Wright is the secret sauce that pulls it all together. And she knows it too. Even in black and white her smile is like, “Dang I look good!”
Even surrounded by the bulk of the MCU, even stuck in the back row next to Bradley “I Voice A Raccoon” Cooper and whomever is being blocked by Chris Pratt’s fat fucking head, it’s impossible to take your eyes off of her:
But look, I don’t want to declare Wright the best-dressed Avenger in a vacuum. So, for the sake of comparison, here are some of the other red carpet looks. First up: ScarJo dressing up for the prom in a John Hughes movie alongside her date, Duckie Jost…
Here’s Karen Gillan as a saucy school marm, getting ready to teach the Little House On The Prairie kids a sex-ed class:
Here’s Vin Diesel as a fast & furious fuckin’ tree or some shit:
Here’s some assorted pantsuits and jumpsuits that are doing a good job, but objectively do not stack up to Wright’s pantsuit:
And here is the second best-dressed actor of the premiere, Benedict Wong, giving negative fucks:
And again, here’s Letitia Wright, dominating that red carpet like a fucking champ:
So uh, when is she going to take over as Wakanda’s Black Panther?
