Pharrell Williams Channels a Pharaoh at Chanel Runway Show
All hail, Pharrell Williams!
The fashion-forward musician channeled a chic pharaoh as he strutted down the runway at the Egyptian-themed Chanel Metiers d’Art Pre-Fall 2019 show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Tuesday evening.
Against a backdrop of the Temple of Dendur, originally built around 15 B.C., the “Happy” singer, who has been a longtime ambassador of the brand, modeled a glitzy gold metallic longline knit, adorned with a decorative, multi-colored collar piece, gold lame pants and matching shoes. The statement ensemble was finished off with a graphic eyeliner look.
As expected, a slew of A-list stars sat front row. Blake Lively was spotted outside the venue in a sparkly silver dress and cropped white satin jacket.
“That experience was very interesting because the shoot was one-hour long,” Cruz shared. “He shoots, like, five minutes per picture. He knows exactly what he wants. I was asking him to direct me because it’s easier when I have a character to protect me. There you’re playing yourself and I tell him to give me a character, scenes to imagine, to create distance from myself and he would tell me, ‘No, it’s perfect. Do whatever you want.’ He’s very nice and he’s very funny. He has a great sense of humor.”
Julianne Moore looked winter-ready in a cozy white tweed dress, tights and knee-high boots, while Margot Robbie opted for a black tulle A-line dress and peep-toe mules.
Lily-Rose Depp was fierce in a dark blue velvet long-sleeve mini dress. Diane Kruger chose a dressier outfit via an elegant sheer embellished gown.
