Michael B. Jordan loves how Pharrell Williams can wear whatever he wants and make it look effortless.

Michael B. Jordan is still “growing” into his own style.

The Black Panther actor certainly impresses in the spotlight at showbiz events, often favouring tailored suits in a variety of shades. He may appear to have his taste in clothes nailed, but Michael still feels like it’s a work in progress.

“I feel like my style is still evolving,” he explained to Britain’s Esquire magazine. “The more I travel and the more I see, the more I feel like I’m picking up new stuff. I always thought I wasn’t really big on hats, but now I’ll try to pull off a fedora, or I’ll wear a snapback if I’m feeling casual. I’m growing into it.”

On the topic of his style icon, Michael shared his admiration for musician and producer Pharrell Williams, who he believes can pull off “whatever he wants”. The star puts this down to his idol’s self confidence, and Michael was especially in awe of his choice to rock a Vivienne Westwood hat at the Grammys in 2014.

But it seems the 29-year-old’s own fashion sense is impressive enough to attract attention, as he managed to wear his own black XXIV jacket for his role in boxer flick Creed.

“I’ve had it for a long time and thought that it worked for the character, so Ryan (Coogler, Creed director) and I made it happen,” he explained. “It was work and personal all coming together.”

Along with dressing the part, Michael also had to work out extensively to get the build of a boxer for the flick. Working with trainer Corey Calliet proved to be an enlightening experience for him, as he admitted to Men’s Journal last year (15): "I felt muscles I never knew I had.”
