Later during the show, Latifah returned to the stage in a brown tuxedo dress from Christian Siriano’s fall 2024 collection, which was inspired by Frank Herbert’s “Dune” saga. “If we did have to live in this apocalyptic world — what’s the cocktail? What’s the evening?” Siriano previously told WWD about his inspiration for the collection.
