TIP YOUR HAT TO NEW GRAMMY STAR: PHARRELL’S HAT

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Pharrell Williams’ hat is the fashion star of the night at the Grammy Awards — on Twitter.

The puffy brown Canadian Mountie-style fedora — or should that be phedora? — with a big brim was one of the night’s boldest fashion statements.

Williams’ choice of a tight red track jacket only added to the unconventional look amid tuxedos and evening gowns worn by other attendees. Like Prince’s cane, Pharrell’s hat had its own Twitter handle within minutes of Williams’ first appearance on the broadcast, and companies like Gain and Arby’s were trying to horn in on the attention.

Williams won producer of the year Sunday, his fourth Grammy.

PHARRELL SPEAKS FOR THE MASKED MEN OF DAFT PUNK

Pharrell showed Grammy viewers just how the mask-wearing guys of Daft Punk would handle an acceptance speech.

Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo, who do not speak in public or reveal their faces, deferred to Pharrell with a bow of their robotic heads after the electronic pioneers won best pop duo/group performance for “Get Lucky.”

Producer of the year winner Pharrell began his speech by saying, “On behalf of the robots … ” and noted, “Of course they want to thank their families.”
