Last night at the Grammys, Pharrell's hat was all the rage, so to speak, making rare note of forestry on the red carpet, and even garnering its own Twitter account. But while his pairing of the Smokey hat (or, to him, "military inspired") with an Adidas jacket may have seemed random, there was a very specific method to his madness: His ensemble paid homage to the video for Malcolm McLaren's 1982 single "Buffalo Gals," written after the legendary punk svengali/visioneer first attended a Zulu Nation park jam in the Bronx. In essence, Pharrell was bigging up that very creative moment when punk and hip-hop were cross-pollinating and speaking to one another, both musically and sartorially.

McLaren opens the "Buffalo Gals" video in the very same park ranger hat and khaki safari jacket, bopping around between shots of a very formal square dance in a basketball court, and slightly less formal B-boys clad in Pharrell's exact Adidas gear. "Buffalo gals go around the outside," McLaren raps, with background vocals and scratches by members of the Zulu Nation and the World's Famous Supreme Team. As style collisions go, Skateboard P.'s ensemble makes sense in this context, even if it didn't on the carpet.

We have EYES. We've seen platforms before. From Nicki Minaj to Taylor Momsen to Kerli we've been witness to our fair share of high-rise kicks, but these Buffalo Classics certainly take the cake. With a 12-inch heel and 11-inch platform, these black flatform sneakers will make their wearer a full FOOT taller for the equally tall price of $599.95. While they're still shy of the Guinness World Record-breaking 16-inch stiletto heels that hold the title of World's Tallest, I think we can all agree that these are still some MONSTER shoes.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
