Move over, princesses, and make room for a true queen! Danai Gurira celebrated the Broadway premiere of her play, Eclipsed, on Sunday, March 6, by walking the red carpet in a sweeping blue dress that looked like a real-life version of the one Frozen‘s Queen Elsa wears.

The Walking Dead actress, 38, donned a draped, celadon-blue Schiaparelli Haute Couture dress that boasted a multihued train. Extra champagne layers created the illusion of a shimmer, while the piece-y train mimicked Elsa’s glorious cape.

One difference? While Elsa’s dress is exclusively blue, Gurira’s dress also featured one hot-pink ribbon of fabric for a bold pop of contrast.

Lupita Nyong’o, who stars in the play, joined the playwright on the red carpet. The 12 Years a Slave actress, 33, stunned in an emerald lace dress by Balmain. But the Oscar winner seemed to love Gurira’s dress even more, as she continued to fluff the train to get it just so for photos.
