The Grammy hat begat the Oscar knicker.
He doffed the hat — but he lopped the pants instead.
Pharrell moved on from Smokey Bear to schoolboy — or was it yodeler? — on the red carpet, choosing a knickered pant tux from Lanvin, possibly the first time shorts made an Oscars appearance since Demi Moore dared in those biker pedal pushers. (Pharrell's fashion statement by far had the leg up.)
But those bare shins came with a risk. While chatting with Ryan Seacrest, a woman's dress brushed against Pharrell's shin skin, startling the musician.
And like that, @PharrellShorts has been birthed on Twitter.
