Grammy Award winner, singer-songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams hosted and performed at Pure in Caesars Palace on Saturday night.
The former Neptunes member who is currently blazing up the charts as a collaborator on Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” posed for photographers on the red carpet before heading inside the Angel Management Group hotspot.
After making his way to a VIP booth on the main stage after shaking hands and posing for photographs with fans, Pharrell, just after 1 a.m. Sunday, began his set that included “Happy,” the theme song he wrote for the upcoming film “Despicable Me 2,” “Frontin’,” “I Just Wanna Love You,” “Excuse Me Miss,” “Blurred Lines” and “Get Lucky.”
After the performance, Pharrell made his way back to the VIP table, danced and hung out with his friends and posed for pictures with devoted fans. Pharrell last month celebrated his 40th birthday at Hakkasan Las Vegas, another AMG property, at MGM Grand. Thanks to Ethan Miller of Getty Images for his photo gallery.

Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.
Caesars Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
