I was listening to a podcast yesterday, and Chadwick Boseman’s name came up, and I thought about how he had my favorite/most memorable outfit (guy edition) of the decade. It was not technically a suit but a Versace jacket ensemble that he wore for his opening monologue on SNL. His stylist is a young woman named Ashley Weston, and I love her choices for him. He is always interesting.
Then I realized my favorite outfit of this decade for a woman was actually worn by a girl — and was also a suit: Blue Ivy’s pink Gucci tux that she wore to the 2017 Grammys. I love that a girl passed on a traditional princess outfit, and the ruffled blouse was a nod to Prince who was being honored that night. Lastly, the back of the tux jacket has the black panther symbol. I mean…Can someone please find me a knockoff of this suit please?!?
And this was my own favorite – and worst – suit moment. The pantsuit I wore on Election Day 2016. Sigh.
