The competition amongst women's hats is almost as fierce as the race!

During the countdown to the big race I’ve been looking at one of the main spectacles at the Derby: Women’s hats. The competition in this arena is fierce with entries ranging from the fabulous to the fantastical.

Here are some of the hats that called to me along with a link to a slide show of hats seen at the Derby today. They certainly put Kentucky Derby Barbie’s hat to shame!

Is the wearer of this hat trying to sneak into the race?

  1. Fantastic! I’m on the hunt for a Derby hat and thought my friend who offered me a Vegas showgirl hat that won’t fit in a hat box was over the top. Apparently I need to take her up on her offer if I want to look fabulous. Great pictures, thanks for sharing!
