The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Pharrell Williams is Auctioning Off His ‘Arby’s’-Style Vivienne Westwood Hat, Jimmy Choo to Launch Range of Sensible Shoes, and Beyoncé Finally Performing New Material on ‘Mrs. Carter’ Tour

Pharrell Williams Grammys Red Carpet

• Now you, too can own the exact Smokey The Bear-esque hat Pharrell Williams rocked at this year’s Grammy awards–if you have $10,000 dollars, that is. The legendary producer is putting the Vivienne Westwood hat that launched a thousand internet memes up for auction on eBay. Proceeds will benefit his charity, From One Hand to Another, which serves underprivileged youths. As of now, the highest bid is $10,500, but if you don’t have that kind of cash, you can get the hat straight from Westwood’s website for $180. (From One Hand to Another)


For women who simply can’t bear the thought of standing in these

• Love Jimmy Choo shoes but hate the hurt they put on your feet? Today’s your lucky day–the brand has announced their latest endeavor, Jimmy Choo.08°, a line of sporty, stylish-yet-comfortable shoes made for the woman who loves fly footwear, but not what it does to your poor piggies. “Sometimes in fashion you don’t have to be teetering on heels,” said creative director Sandra Choi. “The word practical is so unsexy — but I’m allowed to use it now.” From what we know so far, the range sounds like it’s going to be pretty badass. WWD has the deets on what styles to expect: “There are biker boots; slip-on skater shoes in matte black python or antique brushed gold leather; flat tuxedo pumps with a pointy toe; rocker boots with straps and snake details, and high-top trainers in a variety of finishes and materials, including sparkles and elasticated lacing.”  But for those of you who still like shoes with a little height, the line will also offer sensible heels–we’re talking 3-inchers. The collection will bow with a pop-up shop at Selfridges, with prices starting at $543. (WWD)
