It may be awards season, but some stylish stars ditched the entertainment scene for the haute couture shows in Paris. Celebrities came out in full force to Chanel’s garden-inspired spring ’20 couture show, held today in the City of Lights. Chanel collaborator Pharrell Williams held court on the front row alongside wife Helen Lasichanh.
Williams wore a sporty look in a pink blazer, cropped khaki pants and Adidas skate sneakers. A “Human Made” hat completed the ensemble. Meanwhile, Lasichanh wore shades of black-and-white. She wore a houndstooth coat over a gray knee-length dress. The look was finished off by pointed-toe, bow-adorned heels with a cap toe.
Just ahead of taking the stage for his American Express Platinum House Concert at the 1 Hotel during Art Basel in Miami on Saturday, Pharrell Williams sat down with PEOPLE and opened up about the love of his life, wife of five years Helen Lasichanh. “I love her because of everything that she is, good, bad and indifferent,” Williams, 45, says of the model and designer. “We share a space in love that is, I don’t possess her. You know when I was young I used to say things like, ‘Oh, she’s mine.’” “But she’s not mine,” says Williams, before adding, “but she sure makes me feel like it.” “I’m exhausted,” he said just ahead of the performance, “just tired from this whole year.”
Williams says his time in South Africa — where he took the stage at Global Citizen Festival alongside Beyoncé and JAY-Z for their song “Nice” — was the most inspiring. “It was beautiful. I was there with all of my gorgeous people and DNA. It was beautiful to see all of that,” he says. “There’s a lot of familiar energy that you feel. Language might be different, customs might be different, but you feel the energy when you’re around your people. It’s just a natural thing.” “I didn’t say one word on the verse,” he says with a laugh. “But it was a blast — we had a great time.”
