She spoke with the magazine about styling Jordan at the SAG Awards, where he wore a custom double-breasted Louis Vuitton navy tuxedo with Virgil Abloh‘s signature “bib,” aka a harness – a statement-making look.

The look that went viral was Michael B. Jordan at the SAG Awards. The look was so distinct that it created a dialogue regarding menswear and the risks you can take in today’s culture.
