Pharrell gets a well deserved honor at the CFDA awards as a fashion icon. It was surprising to see him looking so casual at such a big award show. Clearly, he didn't care for the black-tie dress code when he came in jeans and a blue leather jacket. But who cares when you're already getting the fashion icon award?! Plus, yes there are fashion rules, but it's no fun if they aren't broken sometimes. I think Pharrell has always been a major influence in pop culture. He mixes sporty street with high fashion in one try. I love it, because he does it so casually. Pharrell doesn't try to impress people, nor does he try to make himself a fashion icon. It just happens. His style speaks for him.
