Hot Or Not? Pharrell does Monaco in BBC & Chanel

Remember Hot or Not dot com? Mixing prints is a big trend this spring. What do you think of Pharrell Williams’ outfit?

Skateboard P sported his own line, Billionaire Boys Club, at the 2010 Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix. He paired the Distressed Print Hickory jacket and Digi-Camo 3/4 Cargo shorts, from BBC‘s spring/summer 2010 collection, with his Chanel denim sunglasses and Ice Cream sneakers.

We wonder if Pharrell is looking to sponsor any F1 cars. As part of the LidRock program, he sponsored Bill Lester’s No. 22 Toyota in NASCAR’s Craftsman Truck Series a few years ago.
