Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Zendaya, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, and Kim Kardashian were among those spotted front row at Pharrell’s runway debut as Louis Vuitton’s new creative director of menswear Tuesday, June 20.

Timed at sunset, the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2024 collection was presented on the Pont Neuf bridge in Paris and featured over 70 looks, a runway that resembled LV’s Damien print, new music from Pharrell and No Malice, as well as an orchestra and choir.
