Pharrell Williams Vivienne Westwood Buffalo Hat

2014 Grammys
Pharrell Williams Hat
Albert Einstein Hair

I got MAD LOVE for Pharrell Williams. That’s my dude until my last breath. But that hat at the 2014 Grammy Awards? Whoa.
But hold on. Let’s dig a little deeper.
Pharrell explained “It’s a Vivienne Westwood Buffalo hat from when she was with Malcolm McLaren…It’s not vintage — I would’ve been really stylin’ if I had one from the ’80s.”
Who is Malcolm McLaren you ask? He was a British musician/artist famous in hip hop history for the smash “Buffalo Gals” in the 80’s. On Malcolm’s passing in 2010, Vogue Italia, proclaimed him, “The father of punk rock…We will all miss the irony of a genius of costume and entertainment. ”
Don’t be surprised when all the cool kids are rocking these Buffalo Hats. Remember Trucker Hats? It’s hard to question the fashion choices of Pharrell, so I won’t. I’m more concerned about what sounds and sights are in Pharrell’s head and less concerned about what’s on it. Kind of like Albert Einstein’s hair. Yes, I just compared Pharrell’s Buffalo hat to Albert Einstein’s hair!
