It appears that none of the celebrities attending last Saturday’s 139th Kentucky Derby had time to read our post on non-theme-y race day outfits. Their looks ranged from camp-y to crazy to I-stole-this-from-Scarlett-O’Hara’s-closet-y; each hat was bigger than the next, each dress a little more dated.
But, whatever. Aside from Halloween, royal weddings and saloon-themed photo booths, it’s the one occasion at which umbrella-sized headgear and mid-century debutante styles are socially acceptable—so the urge is understandable. And heck, if someone gave us a spot by the tracks, we’d probably show up looking like an extra from Steel Magnolias‘ wedding scene, too.
