Pharrell Williams: A Man of at Least Two Hats


Pharrell WilliamsWe’re sure you’re aware of the buzz—and snarky Internet banter—surrounding the giant Vivienne Westwood World’s End Mountain Hat that Pharrell Williams wore to the Grammys. For the record, we adored the music mogul’s tan topper—and not just because it’s a vintage style from Westwood’s iconic Fall ’82 Buffalo Girls collection. But the ever-informed social media sphere all but gave him hell. Arby’s tweeted at the rapper, asking for its hat back, and the accessory even spawned a spoofy Twitter account. Well, Williams doesn’t care what haters think of his sartorial decisions—a fact that was made very clear today in London, when he donned a gray iteration of the Westwood chapeau. Well played, Mr. Williams. To you, we tip our hats.
