Looks like Michael B. Jordan is harnessing his inner fashion icon, quite literally.

The "Black Panther" star showed up to Sunday night's SAG Awards in a sleek navy-and-black suit that looked fairly classic in every way except for one unmistakable detail: a pink and purple patterned harness.

After taking one look at the, err, unique accessory, many fans were left to wonder: What in the name of fashion is going on?

We're pretty sure Jordan wasn't planning on going skydiving after the award show, and we haven't heard anything about him starring in a new "Fifty Shades of Grey" film, so, naturally, we too were a little bit confused about the actor's accessory choice.

Some fans on Twitter thought it was a mistake.

While others quickly came to Jordan's defense.

But Jordan isn't alone in his affinity for male harnesses on the red carpet; he's simply the latest celebrity to try his hand at the polarizing look.

Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon seemingly kicked off the trend last March when he wore a bondage-inspired harness to the Oscars.

Last summer, Jordan's "Black Panther" co-star Chadwick Boseman also tested the waters with a cream-colored harness at the ESPY Awards.

More recently, "Beautiful Boy" star Timothée Chalamet sported a bedazzled black harness at the Golden Globes, gaining plenty of attention from fashion devotees.

As it turns out, you can blame — or thank, if you dig the trend — the designers at Louis Vuitton for making harnesses happen. Last spring, the fashion house sent models clad in harnesses down the runway and ever since then, well, celebrities couldn't resist but try them.

The collection was inspired by Michael Jackson, who arguably really kicked off the harness trend at the Super Bowl in 1993.

Depending on who you ask, the trending accessory is referred to as a harness, a bib or any other number of monikers. But one thing's for sure: Fans simply can't stop talking about Jordan's style.
