Although the 25-year-old hasn’t publicly spoken about what inspired her to choose the dress from the controversial 2019 Spring/Summer collection, we did some digging and learned what may have been the designer’s inspiration behind the dress.

According to L’Officiel USA, during the final day of New York Fashion Week 2018 the renown fashion icon sent models down the runway in a collection that featured women’s mugshots on the fabric. “The designer's inspiration was the empowerment of women who do anything necessary to stay on top,” the media outlet speculated.

To top off the look for the soulful night, Walker served an entire beauty moment with a classic updo, flawless makeup, and an overall radiant appearance.
