Michael B. Jordan has added more colour and patterns into his wardrobe since working with stylist Jeff K. Kim.

Actor Michael. B Jordan and his stylist Jeff K. Kim constantly battle about jewellery.

The Creed star has had a style evolution over the last year, mixing up his usual black tux and suit looks for a more fun take on formal wear. This is thanks to Jeff’s style influence, but Michael won’t budge when it comes to accessories – despite Jeff’s insistence.

“We battle about jewellery all the time,” Michael laughed to The Hollywood Reporter.

“He’s trying to be the new age Flavor Flav,” Jeff joked.

“Whatever,” Michael shot back. “When I rock a hoodie and some sweats sometimes, shall I put gold chains on top of my outfit, like something gaudy like that? Maybe some earrings?”

They do agree on outfit choices though, with Michael praising the stylist for helping him push fashion boundaries.

For Jeff, working with Michael gives him the opportunity to swap styles, depending on what the event calls for.

“There are awards shows where it’s good to look classic and a proper movie star,” he noted.

“Something like the MTV Movie Awards you can have a little more fun, play around with colours and patterns,” Michael added.

When asked to pick their favourite of Michael's looks, their answers varied considerably. Jeff went for a formal ensemble with a twist, while Michael preferred a more casual outfit.

“My favourite red carpet look is the Met Gala last year (15), he wore Dolce & Gabbana,” Jeff recalled. “It was an immaculate look. It was fun because we get to do something that is a little out of the ordinary because there’s a theme, I will say he was one of the best dressed.

But Michael disagreed, going for an Alexander McQueen outfit instead: “Personally I think it might have been Cinema Con. I think it was the first time I actually rocked a suit without a tie.
