Donald Glover wore a bold checked suit to ‘The Lion King’ premiere: cute or nah?

Premiere Of Disney's "The Lion King"

I’ve covered the LA premiere photos from The Lion King separately, divided into two posts. One post for Beyonce and one post for all non-Beyonce attendees. Even though Beyonce clearly got the most attention at the premiere, the event was very well-attended with most of the cast (voice actors) showing up and lots of celebrity guests who just wanted to see the movie. Donald Glover has sort of been eclipsed by Beyonce, but I suspect Glover is fine with that. Glover voices grown-up Simba and I appreciate his bold fashion choices.

Here’s Chiwetel Ejiofor looking like a whole meal. He voices Scar.

Tiffany Haddish went to the premiere! I wonder if she tried to act as Beyonce’s bodyguard again.

Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams look amazing here. Best they’ve ever looked, honestly.

Yara Shahidi went black-and-white except for the shoes. I realize it’s “in style” to do shoes in a completely different color, but I really dislike that.

Steph and Ayesha Curry and their little girls. Such a sweet family.

Wow, I haven’t seen LeAnn Rimes in a while. She came out with Eddie Cibrian and Eddie’s two sons.

Zooey and Emily Deschanel, for some reason.

    Did the Deschanels dad work on the film?

    • lucy2 says:

      Yes, he’s credited on it, I just looked it up as that was my first thought too.

    • Maddy says:

      Yes, he worked on the Cinematography which I heard was breathtaking.
      The caption on his daughters’ picture is kind of disrespectful, tbh.

      • Heather says:

        Yeah I was kind of surprised by the caption, I thought it was pretty well known that their dad works in Hollywood and it was an easy check to see that he’s the cinematographer on this film.

      • Maddy says:

        The Daily Mail was able to get it right. So you know, no excuses. He has an Oscar. Put some respect on his name.

      • a says:

        Agree. Poor form.

    • Marianne says:

      Thats just what I was about to look up to.

  2. Rapunzel says:

    Chiwetel Ejiofor getting better with age, like fine wine and Keanu Reeves.

  3. Digital Unicorn says:

    I love Donald’s look, its him.

    Also I can’t help but feel this is the look James Middleton is going for and failing at it (esp with the shots from Wimbledon).

    • Becks1 says:

      YES lol. JMidy wants to look like this, but not quite.

      I like Glover’s look. I feel like he’s reached a point now where he can just do what he wants and I’m like, sure, its Donald Glover, that works.

      • Kimmy says:

        I have a serious Donald Glover problem. He’s so damn talented. It makes him so much more attractive to me. Plus his Redbone album is like pure sex. *drool*

  4. TheHeat says:

    I really like Donald Glover’s suit. It’s funky and it suits him. It wouldn’t work for everyone, but for him it sure does!
    Michelle Williams’ dress is amazing! I love it!

    • minx says:

      I do too, he looks adorable.

    • Esmom says:

      I like it too although my only quibble is the v-neck t-shirt. I hate v-neck shirts in almost any situation. I love Michelle’s dress, too, and Yara’s ensemble is perfect, imo. Tiffany’s suit is also really cool.

      I get that Zooey D. has a quirky aesthetic but that dress is just fug.

  5. aiobhan targaryen says:

    He should have trimmed his beard, otherwise he looks good for him. I like the suit. It fits well on him.

    All of the women excert for Tiffany look good. I am only feeling Tiffany’s hair. The suit looks too tight. She looks as unconvinced as I am that this outfit was a good idea. I do like that she tries though.

    I actually like Yara’s whole outfit. The proportions work and it does not age her.

    Steph’s family is cute. Both little girls look a lot like him.

    I did not realize that I missed Chiwetel until I saw these photos. It is nice to see him again. He needs to be in more things.

  6. Seraphina says:

    Chiwetel Looks like a man. That’s the best way I can explain it. He always looks good.
    Kelly and Michelle nailed it and look great some of the best from all I’ve seen at the premiere. And LeAnn just didn’t even try.

  7. lucy2 says:

    I love Donald’s style, but damn, Chiwetel looks goooooood.

    Kelly and Michelle look amazing.

    The Curry girls are adorable, but IMO too young for a red carpet photocall.

  8. ElleBee says:

    I like Donald’s look.

    Has anyone else noticed that Donald Glover FRICKING SIMBA hasn’t posted a single Lion King related post on any of his Social Media? It’s like he doesn’t really care about it. Then people wonder why it’s turning into the Beyonce show

  9. Leriel says:

    I like Donald’s suite, even if it looks like tablecloth, lol. Harry Styles wore similar 2 years ago probably.

    I like that famous men experiment with clothing more, red carpets don’t look bnw anymore.

  10. teehee says:

    Everything abut Donald, head to foot, is “him”. Nailed it. :)

  11. EOA says:

    I really like Donald Glover and have no problem with the check design but I don’t think the fact that it is double-breasted is working for him.

    • Josephine says:

      double-breasted is hard for almost anyone – have to be rail thin. but i still like the look overall – the fact that it is double-breasted gets lost a little in the pattern.

  12. elimaeby says:

    I may be in the minority here, but Donald’s beard is giving me feelings. I like it a little scraggly. The little bit of salt and pepper showing through? The man is aging like wine to me.

  13. Emma says:

    The shade about the Deshanel sisters made me laugh! Leanne looks so much better at this weight, and Michelle Williams looks amazing. I actually love Yara’s look with the shoes providing the pop of color.

  14. One of the Marys says:

    Donald carries off this suit and I like that.
    I bet the Cibrian sons are next to be pushed into the public eye with appearances, modelling, reality tv…something. Does anyone know if they’re active on social media? Are they influencers?

  15. smee says:

    Yara Shahidi – I don’t mind her shoes, but I hate the white shirt and ivory lapels.

    I like Donald’s suit but the patern is a bit too large for his stature, if that makes sense…

  16. shells_bells says:

    I think Donald looks great in this suit. But he’s so cool that he can pull anything off!
    I like the Deschanel (sp?) girls and don’t get the shade. I’m more bothered by the sight of LeAnn Rimes (ugh).

  17. Renee says:

    I’m here for Steph & Ayesha Curry. I cannot love their family more! Beautiful family!

  18. Audrey says:

    I have such a crush on Donald Glover and I think he looks great! Even with the shaggy beard!

  19. Reece says:

    I agree with everyone else. The suit looks like Donald. If he’d come in a regular tux then I’d raise an eyebrow. He looks very good!

    Kelly and Michelle look great!!
    Is Cibrian in the movie?

  20. JanetDR says:

    Is Donald wearing it? Then it’s beautiful no matter what!

  21. Godwina says:

    Cosigning all the pro Glover suit posts. I love how he wears clothes. Charisma can charisma as it likes. He’s serving up Fight the Fight Fashion Wargame realness.
