While it's customary to dress per the theme at the Met Gala, most celebs strayed far from wearing honoree Rei Kawakubo or her Comme des Garçons label.
Welcome to that annual sartorial showdown known as the Met Ball, which raises funds for the Anna Wintour Costume Center, and this year, celebrates enigmatic and crazy-talented Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons.
Kendall Jenner and Nicki Minaj both turned heads in super-revealing looks this week. And that’s not all that happened: Curvy Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Hunter McGrady stole the spotlight at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in a barely-there leather bondage look, while Pharrell showed up at the Chanel show in his PJs (well, almost). Watch Yahoo Style’s Joe Zee round up his favorite looks of the week and pit them head-to-head to see who will emerge as the winner in this week’s edition of Knockout Style.
Pharrell Williams wears what he wants. He continues this tradition during the 89th Academy Awards luncheon, rocking a NASA sweatshirt, presumably a nod to "Hidden Figures."
Singer Pharrell Williams and wife Helen Lasichanh have three more reasons to be happy, having just welcomed triplets, Williams’s representative confirms to People. The magazine said the couple declined to provide the babies’ names or genders, but confirmed that mother and children are “healthy and happy.” The triplets will join Williams and Lasichanh’s 8-year-old son, Rocket. Healthy and happy is good news for the family, as triplet births can be fraught with complications.
What did Pharrell Williams have on his head at the Chanel Métiers d’Art show in Paris on Tuesday? The musician walked the runway in a long dark blue version of Chanel’s signature tweed jacket, a black shirt, and matching jeans, with strings of Chanel pearls draped around his neck, silver gloves in (not on) his hand, white shoes, and a hat markedly smaller than the ones he typically wears.
Before they became critically-acclaimed platinum chart toppers, this year’s nominees, like Carrie Underwood, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj and Wiz Khalifa, had surprisingly normal school portraits.
In Dope, out this Friday, Chanel Iman snorts drugs, vomits on a guy’s chest, and pees in the bushes in front of a coffee shop. It’s a seriously edgier vibe for the model, who is better known for being a Victoria’s Secret Angel and walking the high fashion runways of Dior, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, Versace, and many more. “I was reading a lot of scripts, and then I got Dope and I read it once and I was so into it,” Iman tells Yahoo Style from her suite at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles. She’s exhausted from a long weekend of press supporting the film but is visibly thrilled to be reunited with her co-stars, who include (her ex-boyfriend) A$AP Rocky and Zoë Kravitz as well as executive producer Pharrell Williams.
Despite the fact that 71 percent of our planet is covered by it, for many people, its well-being isn’t always at the forefront of our minds. But World Oceans Day, celebrated each June 8, hopes to change that, by bringing awareness to this important, necessary ecosystem that can sometimes feel like it’s a world away. Getting in on the action is denim purveyor G-Star RAW, which brought superstar singer, producer, and CFDA Fashion Icon Pharrell Williams onboard for a World Oceans Day-inspired collaboration called the “Oceans collection.” Woven from “Bionic Yarn”—yarn made out of discarded plastic found on the oceans’ shores—the 55-piece collection is revolutionary in its creation, sustainability, and message. “I grew up by the ocean,” he tells Yahoo Style.
