What kind of hat is Pharrell wearing at 14s in the Happy video?

It's a Vivienne Westwood hat designed in the 1980s, usually called a Buffalo Girls hat since it was in that video.

It's a Vivienne Westwood hat introduced in 1982.

Here's the whole history about that hat, which has now become Pharrell's trademark.

A fedora. I was thinking a Stetson Stratoliner (scroll down), but it's hard to say.

Nope, that one's not the Vivienne Westwood.

The hat that the OP is interested in isn't the Grammys "Smokey Bear" hat. It's a slightly oversized fedora, for sure, but as oneirodynia says, it's hard to say more than that.
