But after I started my career and it expanded into movies and music, I learned that it’s much more profound than that. Whether it’s in a movie role or a music video that sets a trend for pop culture, or the red carpet, or transcending into a character, or giving you the confidence you need to perform in front of 20,000 people, fashion is about the powerful moments it creates that can inspire you and the world around you.

I was also influenced by the people in my neighborhood and the explosion of hip-hop at that time. Being in the epicenter of that—the baggy jeans and the shell-toe Adidas and the Timberland boots and lots and lots and lots of jewelry. Too much jewelry was not enough jewelry. Some things never change. And of course my hoops; I can’t forget my signature hoops!
