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. Let's see if he rocks up at tonight's BRIT Awards, and whether he can find a babysitter to look after that hat for the second night in a row.
