Will.i.am and Leah McFall performed at The 2014 MusiCares Person Of The Year Gala Honoring Carole King at Los Angeles Convention Center on January 24, 2014 in Los Angeles, California. Will.i.am wore a chain-lapel wool blazer from Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane, over a white shirt with black contrasting collar, black trousers and spiked sneakers.
It is interesting to see Leah McFall performing with Will.i.am at the event. Leah has an incredible voice, and was the runner up of The Voice UK 2013. She was in Will.i.am's team during the series, so it is nice to see them both working together now. I guessed they colour coordinated their outfits, hence the muted black and white shades. The short cropped blazer looked good on Will.i.am, the fit and proportion was flattering, and the chain details on the lapels shimmer beautifully on stage. I love the contrasting collar on his shirt, but not so sure about the extending bit down the front. It created an illusion of a tie which fall well short of it's length, and fighting for attention with the chain details on the blazer. Perhaps another shirt might work better.

Miguel wore the same Saint Laurent blazer when he performed at a fund raiser in New York in December 2013. I wondered if that was a conversation topic if/when they met each other backstage.
