Wakanda forever!

Lupita Nyong’o gave high praise to her Black Panther costar Chadwick Boseman on Instagram Monday by recreating his much-talked-about shirtless Rolling Stone cover, that debuted that same day.

While Boseman channeled his titular role for the Norman Jean Roy photograph, Nyong’o mixed in the strength of her character Nakia for the recreation photographed by her hairstylist Vernon François.

“Imitation is the best form of flattery: @chadwickboseman I admire your quiet, confident, regal nature. You brought the wealth of all your knowledge, wisdom and physicality to T’Challa,” the Oscar winner, 34, captioned her side-by-side comparison shot.

“You led us into the land of Wakanda without ego, without pretense, without fear. We reap the benefits now squarely because of your courage, your fierce dedication, your intense passion, and your grueling workout regimen,” Nyong’o continued.

“We celebrate BREAKING BOX OFFICE RECORDS with @blackpanther for many reasons, but chief among them is because we had you as our king. Enkosi Kumkani!! And congratulations on your @rollingstone cover. From someone who loves you,” said the actress, who plays Boseman’s on-screen love interest.

WATCH: Black Panther Is Not Just a Super Hero Movie

Black Panther’s estimated three-day domestic gross of $192 million marks the highest debut ever for a February film, smashing previous record holder Deadpool’s $132.4 million, according to Entertainment Weekly. Given the four-day weekend, thanks to President’s Day on Monday, the movie’s box office is expected to hit $218 million.

Among the many moviegoers to enjoy the film this weekend were celebrities including Chris Pratt, Brie Larson and former First Lady Michelle Obama.

In addition, following the initial social media blitz from critics in January, the Marvel film has been revered by fans on social media. The consensus? All hail King T’Challa.

Katherine Heigl is on her way to a well-earned six-pack.

The mother of three, 39, shared three photos of herself on Instagram Monday to show off her weight loss progress nearly 14 months after giving birth to her third child, 13-month-old son Joshua Bishop.

Heigl shared a candid post about her weight, writing about her journey to lose the baby weight.

“The first pic was taken one month after he was born. The second pic was taken almost a full year later and the last pic was taken this weekend,” the actress wrote. “I wish I had a few from in between the first and second so you could really see how slow my progress was but alas…I was busy covering it all up those months, not posing in my unders!”

Heigl said she had a vacation at the beach to look forward to, as well as a job on Suits — both being motivators for the actress to get back into shape as well as “my deep desire to feel fit, strong and sexy.”

The former Grey’s Anatomy star said she was looking forward to doing “a deep dive search for the ab muscles” that are currently “buried under that belly somewhere!”

Heigl shared a few tips with her followers as to apps and challenges that helped her on her journey, including the Bikini Body Guide challenge by A8ustralian trainer Kayla Itsine and the Sweat app.

“I won’t lie, the workouts are real a— kickers but the progress I’ve made in only 5 short weeks has kept me motivated and inspired to keep going!” she wrote. “I am so grateful I’ve had a full year to find those ab muscles and get my butt back up where it belongs and wasn’t forced by work to snap back into shape but it is time to make the strength, fitness and overall health of my body a priority and I am so grateful that @rachparcell shared her story and got this mama motivated!”

Heigl isn’t the only actress sharing their health journeys after having a baby. Blake Lively opened up about losing 61 lbs. after 14 months of training.

The mother of two shared an Instagram post, writing, ““Turns out you can’t lose the 61 lbs. you gained during pregnancy by just scrolling through Instagram and wondering why you don’t look like all the bikini models. Thanks @donsaladino for kickin my A double S into shape. 10 months to gain, 14 months to lose. Feeling very proud.”

Hilary Duff has lost her four-legged best friend, Dubois. He was 10.

The actress, 30, announced the death of her Bernese Mountain dog on Instagram Monday with a heartbreaking tribute caption and her favorite video of him.

“I never let myself imagine what this day would look or feel like. It was us. And we were invincible. I am having to look into your beautiful amber almond shaped eyes and tell you goodbye today,” Duff wrote in her farewell message.

“Honestly I would take the pain of losing you 10x over to have had you for even a quarter of that time my dubie. First of all…thank you…for being my best friend…truly. You have been with me though true pain, true happiness and joy, true confusion and disappointment and all over again,” the mother of one continued.

Though she’s lost dogs in the past few years, Dubois’ death has been the most difficult. (Her Chihuahua named Coco died in February 2017, French bulldog Beau died in 2016 and Chihuahua Lola died in 2013.)

“You are more then I could have ever dreamt up on my own. I haven’t taken a step without you beside me for 10 years. You are my protector my comfort, my shadow, my understanding of all things good and warm and fierce,” Duff said in her tribute to Dubois.

“I can’t imagine this house without your noise, your love, your energy, your smile and wagging tail I know I will move into other parts of my life without you but I am scared. I have faith you will still be my shadow, my angel,” she continued.

Concluding, “There aren’t adjectives big enough to describe my love for you Dubes. My gratitude. I will miss you everyday of my life my sweet boy. You were that once in a lifetime dog. That special bond that not everybody gets. And I got you. You picked me. You were a force. You changed me forever. I will see you at the other end of the rainbow My boy. Forever indebted to you. Rip Dubois.”

Duff, who is a mom to 5-year-old son Luca, last shared a photo of Dubois on her social media on Feb. 1, posting a picture taken by boyfriend Matthew Koma.

In May, the Younger star announced she adopted a black Labrador mix puppy named Momo.
