Pharrell Williams brown mountain hat

*Pharrell Williams’ brown 10 gallon hat, which he debuted at the Grammy’s last month, earned more than $44,000 for his educational nonprofit after it was sold to the highest bidder on eBay.

The new owner is roast beef chain Arby’s, whose official logo is nearly a carbon copy of the Vivienne Westwood-designed lid. The restaurant announced that it had the winning bid of $44,100. The proceeds will go to Pharrell’s educational nonprofit From One Hand to Another.

Pharrell performed his Oscar-nominated single “Happy” on Sunday in a black version of the hat, to go with his black tie and formal shorts.
