Pharrell hat sells for £26,000

A US fast food restaurant has won an auction for the famous hat worn by Pharrell Williams at this year's Grammy Awards.

The Arby's chain said it had paid 44,100 US dollars (£26,000) for the Vivienne Westwood-designed hat.

The Arby's logo uses a design similar to the brown fedora, which became a trending topic on Twitter after Pharrell sported it.

The producer-rapper-singer put the hat on eBay two weeks ago. The earnings will support his charity From One Hand to Another.

Pharrell tweeted thanks to the buyer Sunday, to which Arby's replied: "You're welcome. We're HAPPY to support a great cause & get our hat back."

Pharrell wore a similar hat when he performed at the Academy Awards on Sunday. His No 1 hit Happy was nominated for best original song.
