As expected, there were many sartorial nods to the legacy of Chadwick Boseman’s existence.From Ryan Coogler’s gold necklace inspired by Boseman to the myriad “Wakanda Forever” poses. But perhaps the biggest tribute of the night was that of Letitia Wright, who paid tribute to her embroidered Givenchy suit worn by Boseman at the 2018 Academy Awards for McQueen SS23 menswear. She wore a similar black suit embellished with a harness that was the look.
