Pharrell Williams' busy mind can never keep things simple and tame, but much like his music, his style excels because of his attention to detail. At last night's MET Gala the musician/designer showed up in a Lanvin tuxedo, which is nothing new; he's been rocking a lot of the French brand lately. But instead of going for a crazy color, or adorning his suiting with a bouquet of flowers, Pharrell switched things up and rocked a gingham-print tux.
"It's a punk theme, so I tried to mix a little bit of gingham print and the tux," Williams told the red carpet host, model Hilary Rhoda.
When asked about punk's influence on his personal style, Williams responded, "Yeah, I think [punk's] been hard to escape for the past two years, it's like that mixed with a little bit of weird grunge, a little bit of ghetto hip-hop, gold teeth," In which he flashed his diamond-filled mouth and claimed it as an "homage to Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean."
He also rocked black eyeliner to fit in with the night's festivities. Name someone else besides Pharrell who can wear makeup and still not get shit for it.
