Pharrell Williams got on his model steez to walk in Chanel’s runway show and Janelle Monae – dripping in Chanel herself in the most bomb way – was his biggest fan on the front row. See his futuristic swag inside…
Pharrell Williams is already a rapper, record producer, Benjamin Buttons, songwriter and fashion designer. Now, he can add model to the list.
After hitting the stage in South Africa at the Global Citizen Festival, the “Happy” rapper popped up on the runway at Chanel‘s 17th Annual Métier d’Arts show held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. Decked out in gold, Skateboard P channeled a futuristic Pharaoh as he strolled down the runway in metallic pants, a gold knitted tunic with an oversized neck piece, and metallic boots.
By they way, this isn’t the first time P collaborated with Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld. Back in October, he announced he and Chanel would be collaborating once again. According to ELLE, he’ll be debuting a ready-to-wear capsule collection with the famed French fashion house in March 2019 in Seoul, Korea, followed by a worldwide release on April 4th.
Watch him in action below:
Sitting front row, singer Janelle Monae could hardly contain her excitement. She whipped out her phone to capture P ripping the runway.
And chick was a whole vision in her stipped Chanel threads, giving us French girl vibes.
Janelle celebrated her 33rd birthday a few days ago. Happy Belated!
Can we talk about this Chanel filled braid hair stylist Nikki Nelms created? Obsessed. Come on Nikki!

Chanel Métiers d’Art Show Blessed to walk for @chanelofficial at the @metmuseum. This is a moment I’ll never forget. Being able to see all the art inside the museum and work with this amazing team felt unreal. To be the first black male model to walk a Chanel show… WHAT!? I’m still in disbelief. So thankful for @karllagerfeld @carolinelebar @aurelieduclos @carineroitfeld @netta_frankel @imgmodels and everyone that has manifested this moment. We made history
Model Alton Mason became the first black male-model to walk in a Chanel show in the 109 years the brand has existed. That’s insane, but #ThisIsAmerica.
