Throughout his years in the spotlight, Jordan has worn fashionable looks that push the creativity of menswear, choosing knee-length suit jackets, neon suits, and eye-catching patterns.
As Jordan turns 34 on February 9, take a look at some of his most memorable fashion moments on the red carpet.
At the Academy Awards in 2014, Jordan wore a neatly tailored suit with a couple of accents.
Jordan’s Givenchy suit perfectly fit the actor’s body, but the real highlight of the look was the star pins on his collar. The pop of character hinted at Jordan’s future fashion risks.

Jordan stood out at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards with this patterned suit.
“It can be hard for guys to stand out in your run-of-the-mill tux,” Nina Terrero at EW wrote in 2015. “Michael B. Jordan’s plaid suit veers to the unconventional side while looking pretty cool.”
At the 2016 Louis Vuitton Menswear fashion show, Jordan wore a blue ensemble with a statement jacket.

He showed up to the 2017 Met Gala with another standout plaid look.
The Met Gala’s theme in 2017 was “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between,” and Jordan wore a plaid Ralph Lauren suit and paired it with a white bow tie.
The following year, Jordan wore another well-tailored, pinstriped suit to the Met Gala.

In 2019, Jordan turned heads at the Screen Actors Guild Awards with his harness.
“The ‘Black Panther’ star buckled into a cross-body Vuitton harness that was splattered with the label’s iconic monogram print,” Christian Allaire at Vogue wrote in 2019. “It was also watercolored with vibrant splashes of pink, lilac, white, and black, making for one seriously head-turning finish. Given its bold nature, Jordan paired it with a more classic double-breasted suit in navy and black. (The key to pulling it off: completely subduing it.)”
At the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, Jordan kicked the basic suit jacket up several notches.
At the Toronto International Film Festival for his film “Just Mercy,” Jordan chose a knee-length jacket with silver details and paired it with a white shirt and black pants.
