Sure, part of the reason the look stood out was because it was modeled by ELLE’s March cover star Gigi Hadid, arguable one of the most famous models working today.

But it was also because the look felt like an obvious nod to one of Ford’s most iconic look from his influential years at Gucci: the red velvet suit from his 1996 fall collection.

It was memorably worn by Gwyneth Paltrow at the MTV Video Music Awards and pinned to countless mood boards for years to come.
