Pharrell’s infamous Buffalo Hat has been sold to the highest bidder.
On Sunday, the Vivienne Westwood head-piece was auctioned off on eBay and sold for $44,100. A whopping 131 bids were entered and ironically, the winner was fast food chain Arby’s. As we recall, they initially threw shade when Pharrell wore the hat to the Grammy’s, insinuating that ‘he stole their look.’ But as the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and when it comes to fashion, Pharrell can do no wrong.
All proceeds from the auction will be given to From One Hand to Another, a non-profit educational organization. Arby’s thanked Pharrell for his generous gesture and for supporting such a great cause. Check out their corresponding tweets below.
