The actress, who dressed as the lady-in-waiting, was joined by her “Black Panther” cast members Danai Gurira, Chadwick Boseman and Daniel Kaluuya, who channeled queen-to-be Imani Izzi, Rev. Brown and Prince Akeem, respectively.

Nyong’o, whose birthday was March 1, also had themed cake and Zamunda currency notes printed with baby photos of her, Gurira and Kaluuya ― who were also celebrating their birthdays.

Guests also received “sexual chocolate” bars and “Black Panther” pins ― a nod to the forthcoming Ryan Coogler-directed film ― as party favors.
