And it was perfect

Marvel's Black Panther had a lot to celebrate last night. For one, the already record-breaking film had its world premiere in L.A., where the cast members embraced a dress code worthy of the event by dressing up like royalty. 

Director Ryan Coogler and cast members Lupita Nyong'o, Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, David Oyelowo, and Daniel Kaluuya, wore stunning bold looks, as well as traditional African prints and fabrics, sending Twitter into an emotional frenzy.

"Yo! Black folks out here looking like the ROYALTY that we are on this #BlackPanther carpet!! Yessss!!!" wrote Orange Is the New Black's Danielle Brooks with a .GIF from Coming To America

"I feel like these outfits were for anyone that tries to deny how African #BlackPanther is set to be. As in this movie is clearly going to be unapologetically black and you expect me not be excited? Please," wrote Metro UK entertainment correspondent Tobí Akingbadé. "I mean, look at them all wearing their traditional African clothes that we used to get bullied for at school on the red (purple) carpet for a World Premiere."



Guests, including Childish Gambino, Yara Shahidi, Janelle Monáe, and Issa Rae, also came through with eye-catching colors and styles.

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.

But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.

The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
