If you're anything like me, your Saturday-night footwear is limited to, like, boots or slippers. Pharrell, it is clear, is not anything like me. I mean, he performed on Saturday Night Live last night in these bad boys. What are they, you ask? Oh, just a pair of customized Swarovski crystal Stan Smith sneakers, NBD. Looks like partnering with Adidas has its perks, eh?

Flanked by a group of string musicians, Skateboard P performed "Marilyn Monroe" wearing the shoes, a black three-stripe jacket, and his green Vivienne Westwood Buffalo hat. Will the shoes become a full-time piece of P's look, like the jacket and the hat? Will he be able to get anything he wants customized with crystals from now on? These shoes raise a lot of questions.

Sure, the Oscars at the beginning of the month brought an end to traditional awards season, but Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards usher in the 2014 spring/summer season—one marked by shorts and miniskirts, bright colors, and beachy waves. The temperatures might still be lurking in the high 40s on the northern east coast, but the PYTs on the KCAs orange carpet are helping us get inspired for warmer weather.

Nick girl Ariana Grande paid homage to the network with a little orange shift dress. Rather than exactly matching the carpet (and the awards blimps!), the latter half of "Sam & Cat" opted for a lighter tangerine. Her dress wasn't the only part of her outfit repping for Nickelodeon: Her quilted Chanel purse, which she tweeted a closer picture of, was customized with iconic Nick cartoon characters from Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Catdog, and Aaahh!!! Real Monsters.

If there’s anything we should have seen coming, it’s this. How many times does a dude like Pharrell Williams have to wear a classic three-striped Adidas Fireband jacket before we realize what’s really up? After weeks of speculation, the news has finally broken. Skateboard P has inked an exclusive design deal with Adidas, slated to debut Summer 2014—so start saving your coins now, cause this will be MAY-JAH! Of course, this isn't your typical run-of-the-mill celebrity endorsement campaign (duh, it’s Pharrell).

Pharrell's "Happy" performance at the 2014 Oscars was backdropped with a giant screen of Despicable Me minions wearing their leader's Vivienne Westwood hat. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, Pharrell was wearing the hat again—THE HAT THAT MEMED THE WORLD. Inspired yet again by Malcolm McLaren's "Buffalo Gals" video, but ramped up a bit for the occasion, this time he copped his classic Adidas track jacket in black leather and a crispy, more formal classic black Buffalo crown. Twitter wondered if the sequined kicks on his feet were Red Octobers, but while they did mirror the all-over crimson of Yeezy's feet, we vote no. We're fairly certain he'd never wear Adidas with Nike at the same time, and we see some telltale triple stripes. He did match his mic and earpieces to his footwear, though, with rubied veneers glimmering like jewelry.

2014 Oscars

Quick! Someone claim @pharellsshorts because that handle is going to go fast. [Editor's note: ZANGIT! Already taken.] For the Academy Awards, Pharrell Williams pulled the ultimate fake out and hit the red carpet in ~shorts~. The Best Original Song nominee (“Happy”) had been flaunting his now-iconic Vivienne Westwood hat across town leading up to the ceremony in a wide spectrum of colors. Naturally, we expected that he’d reprise its standout Grammys appearance at the Oscars, but Pharrell opted for a Lanvin shorts suit (sans headgear) instead.

You guys. Pharrell Williams' hat game is just getting better and better. We didn't think that was possible, seeing as the oversized millinery he wore to the Grammys is already more famous than you or I will ever be. But then again, we didn't realize the now-infamous Vivienne Westwood accessory comes in a variety of bold colors, many of which Pharrell has been wearing lately. What's better than a brown Buffalo hat? A FUCHSIA Buffalo hat.

Wear Pharrell's hat on your shirt.

The M.O.C. Brand works fast, y'all. ICYMI, Pharrell wore a giant, "military-inspired" hat to the 2014 Grammy Awards on Sunday that got a TON of attention from the internet. (TBH, though, I don't know how anyone could have missed it because I'm pretty sure you could see that thing from space.) The internet compared it to everything from the Arby's logo to Smokey Bear to Canadian Mountie, and thus, a meme was born. Naturally, the M.O.C. Brand (formerly Yolo Polos) wasted zero time in adding Pharrell's major sartorial moment to their growing collection of stitched-on icon clothing, so now you can officially sport a piece of Grammy history on your person.

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.

The 2014 Grammy Awards were all about amazing performances, stunning fashions, and creating wonderful memories that will last us forever. JK, the night was like 99% about Pharrell's hat! And Madonna's hat! And Pharrell's OTHER hat! From the second the stars started to fill out the red carpet, we couldn't help notice that hip headgear was simply everywhere. Take a look at ALL of tonight's millinery masterpieces:

We're going to go ahead and deem Pharrell's hats the real stars of the Grammys. I mean, hellooo. Just LOOK at his red carpet hat, the first one of two he sported this evening. Twitter appropriately exploded as people started drawing comparisons ranging from Smokey Bear to Canadian Mountie to Arby's logo. He changed for his "Get Lucky" performance, opting for a more conservative, albeit equally large and awesome, fedora. But, c'mon, Pharrell rocks no matter WHAT sits atop his beautiful head.

“Oh snap, I’m running late—let me just grab these clothes from the bottom of my closet and bounce,” Pharrell Williams said, 20 minutes before he showed up on the Grammys red carpet looking like Dudley Do Right-meets-Run DMC (though the interwebz is dead set on Smokey Bear). No, but really, he is probably the only person at the awards show who can say, “I woke up like dih.”

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