Who can forget the infamous hat that Pharrell Williams wore to the Grammy Awards in January 2014?  Well, the Vivienne Westwood-designed hat is back for a return engagement. 

Beginning today -- also National Hat Day -- the chapeau will take up residence until March 15 at the Grammy Museum in celebration of the "Grammy Effect," the theme of this year's ceremony on Feb. 8.

The hat is on loan from Arby's, the restaurant chain which bought the hat for $44,100 when Pharrell auctioned it on eBay last year. Proceeds from the sale were donated to Pharrell's charity organization, From One Hand to Another. Arby's also lent the trendy headwear to the D.C. museum for limited display from Aug. 22 to Oct. 26.

Pharrell's fashion inspired others outside of music. Basketball superstar Lebron James was spotted wearing a Pharrell-esque tall hat following an NBA game last August.
