With so many colourful suits on the red carpet last night, Pharrell Williams opted for a simple traditional look.

The musician joined in the celebrations at the 2012 Glamour Women of the Year Awards at Carnegie Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

He wore a head-to-toe Lanvin look, which featured a black suit, white dress shirt, black dickie-bow, a rubberized blue leather belt and dark-blue leather tassel loafers.

Slick, hip and effortless.

Sometimes you have to appreciate a classic look, no matter how many times you’ve seen it before.
