Leaving a pet or a child home alone is one thing, but Pharrell's decision to retire his oversized fedora and leave it on the hat stand to attend the ELLE Style Awards must have been a real toughie.

Following a number of red carpet appearances wearing the peculiar Vivienne Westwood number, the Grammy Award winning producer looked refreshingly headgear-free and un-cartoonish in a sharp brocade tuxedo jacket and satin trousers at last night's awards.

The 'Happy' singer's awards-season winning streak shows no sign of stopping, as he scooped the gong for International Recording Artist. Go you good thing.
