Tyler, the Creator is celebrating Pharrell in the wake of Williams' debut as Louis Vuitton's men's creative director at Paris Men's Fashion Week.

Tyler was among the many A-list celebrities spotted Tuesday at Paris' historic Pont Neuf bridge to witness Pharrell unveil his LV Spring/Summer 2024 menswear collection.

On the heels of the Louis Vuitton runway show, Tyler hopped on his Instagram Stories to praise Pharrell's artistry.

"I love u so much," the 32-year-old captioned a photo of Williams walking down the runway at the end of the show. "Bro I shed real tears. I couldnt even take photos."

In another post, Tyler shared a picture of him and Pharrell from the latter's Joopiter auction party, which was held earlier this week to kick off Paris Fashion Week.

"What a moment!" Tyler wrote. "So much light. He continues to be a north star. Congrats to the whole team too! Choir sounded great! Score was chefs kiss. Blessed to be able to experience that. Also hiphop is 50 this year. Such beautiful timing."

Tyler's admiration for Pharrell has long been documented. While the pair have collaborated on tracks like 2022’s “Cash In Cash Out” and “Come On, Let’s Go” as well as “Juggernaut,” “IFHY,” and more, the Odd Future rapper has frequently shared how Williams has served as the key inspiration for his career. Most recently, Tyler credited Pharrell's 2003 single "Frontin'" with changing his life.

“No one knew images like that would be shaping how things are 20 years later,” he said. “I’ve stated this multiple times but FRONTIN is my favorite piece of art to grace this earth. i am forever grateful that i'm alive at the same time to experience it. i can only hope that one day something else crosses my path and makes me feel exactly how this does.”
