Now the wardrobe is back, with a twist – a 3M designed fabric that made the grey cloth appear bright white when illuminated by a photographer’s flash.

Early reaction from the celebrity-fashion world ranged from quiet acceptance to disappointed tut-tutting.

“Pharrell has gone and taken the athleisure movement to new, red carpet-ready heights,” writes InStyle’s Andrea Cheng.
