While on the CREED II promo trail, we noticed Tessa has worn the color green at several events.TheYBF.com reached out to her stylists, Wayman + Micah, who explained the significance behind the hue. They told us, "Green is the color of the heart chakra. That was Tessa's feeling towards her character in the film, so she really wanted to play that up."

Sweet! She wears it well too.

Pandemonium ensued when MBJ and Florian got up close and personal with fans as they signed autographs and snapped pics.
