Watch stars including Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Rihanna and Pharrell Williams take on Paris Fashion Week in style.

Musician-turned-designer Get Lucky made her debut as Louis Vuitton’s men’s creative director on Tuesday night.

Turn the Pont Neuf, the oldest bridge in the city, into a celebrity-packed, gold-carpeted, gospel-filled disco.

It was the first show since the death of his predecessor, former Kanye West collaborator Virgil Abloh, who is widely regarded as a pioneer in the industry.

In essence, the event — which was also attended by NBA superstar LeBron James, actress Zendaya, reality star Kim Kardashian and supermodel Naomi Campbell — was as much prom, spectacle, and party as it was a fashion show.

Jay-Z played a gig on the bridge at the end of the night, with a cheery cameo from Pharrell himself on their collaborative tracks I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 ​​Me) and Frontin’.

Meanwhile, Rihanna started trending after she donned an outfit in a “damage print” that Pharrell created for the upcoming collection, who revealed her baby bump.

Williams, 50, told AFP before the performance that he was aware of the history behind the modern dominance of black culture.

“Historically and factually, it has been whitewashed [but] While that’s been hard for us historically, he’s kind of made it easy when it comes to taste because we bring such amazing juxtapositions.”

He added, “It’s amazing when you see LeBron James wearing something, when you hear Jay-Z’s lyrics, when you see and hear Beyoncé, the energy and the voice.”

The NERD and Neptunes singer, rapper and producer also paid tribute to Abloh, who died of cancer at the age of 41 in 2021. “I collaborated with him on two things,” Williams said. Spiritually, his energy is still very much here.
