Although Pharrell Williams is one of the Met Gala cohosts this year, his wife, Helen Lasichanh, totally stole the spotlight on the red carpet. When the couple arrived, our jaws dropped at her over-the-top look: a voluminous bright-red jumpsuit of sorts with no apparent armholes (which made for some semiawkward poses and quite the plethora of entertaining internet reactions). We've gotta hand it to her — she really stuck to the avant-garde theme of the evening, which is an ode to Comme des Garcons designer Rei Kawakubo.
Meanwhile Pharrell was chillin' in a plaid button-down shirt, leather jacket, and ripped jeans, which seems a tad casual for the occasion. But hey, he did attach a handful of cool acrylic pins to his leather jacket; plus he had "REI" stitched on one knee of his jeans as a tribute to the famed designer, so we'll give him an A for effort.
Read on to see the interesting juxtaposition between the couple's Met Gala outfit choices.
