Meet the Rising Fashion Star Who Pregames with ’70s Music and Doritos

Here’s what happened when Cordell Broadus invited us over before a Dior party.

“Can I get you some water? Let me pour you some water!”

It’s a few hours before the annual Guggenheim International Gala, hosted by Dior, and Cordell Broadus is making a turkey sandwich at a friend’s airy loft in Dumbo, Brooklyn, and pouring everyone in the room a glass of water. Dressed in a long white robe, he smiles incessantly, is generous with compliments (he says he loves my hair), and spends much of the evening laughing—sometimes at himself, sometimes when talking about his father, famed rapper Snoop Dogg, or his grandfather, affectionately known as Poppa Snoop across the internet.

A junior at UCLA studying film and television, he’s on a break from school while pursuing various projects. In addition to taking the reins as creative director of L.A.-based streetwear brand Joyrich, he’s working on a short film for Kangol and also modeling, most recently walking for Dolce & Gabbana and Phillip Plein.

Tonight, however, is all about Dior, and by the end of our time with Broadus, he’s dressed in the label head-to-toe, his complexion gleaming thanks to a Dior face mask. It was an evening filled with ’70s music, Cool Ranch Doritos, and a very indulgent bubble bath—a Getting Ready we won’t soon forget.

“This sandwich is a sandwich I’ve been making since I was six years old. I would always resort to these when I didn’t have any more leftovers or I didn’t want any more leftovers. It’s just a regular sandwich with smoked turkey breast—no lettuce or tomatoes or anything like that. I like to eat my food extremely plain.”
