(Yahoo!) - Pharrell Williams created some serious buzz at the 2014 Grammy Awards when he rocked a brown Vivienne Westwood mountain hat with a red Adidas zip up jacket. And now, the head turning accessory can be yours – well, if you're willing to shell out for it, that is. The "Happy" singer took to Twitter on Thursday to announce that he is selling the hat in auction.
We started my hat auction at $200 (the price I paid for it) and it's already up to over 10K? 😳 http://t.co/AgBVQc6mEK— Pharrell Williams (@Pharrell) February 21, 2014
In a statement, Pharrell explained, "I'm giving up the Buffalo hat I wore to the Grammys to help underserved kids get the educational tools they need. Our organization, From One Hand to Another, is committed to bringing kids experiences that ignite their passions, challenge their minds, and prepare them for success.
So just how much is the accessory going for? The starting bid was just $200 and was up to a whopping $10,500 at the time this post was published. In less than 24 hours since the listing was posted, the auction has reeled in 64 bidders… and it still has 10 more days to go, as the listing doesn't close until March 2. While the hat may be a fashion sensation now, Pharrell had no idea that it would garner so much attention. Pharrell not only owns the hat in brown, but he was photographed in New York sporting a gray version as well, so he may not be giving up the look completely.
