It’s Derby day! The 140th running of the Kentucky Derby fell of May 3 this year and celebs arrived in droves wearing the best hats they own. The tradition dates back to when the derby first started in 1875 and it doesn’t show any signs of stopping — not this year anyway.
2014 Kentucky Derby Celebrities Put On Their Finest Hats
Tara Lipinski attended the Kentucky Derby, still wearing a hat, but one that was not as large as some of the other attendees. It was classic, small, black, and tilted to the side. She also wore a beautiful black dress to match.
All white was the fashion of the day for Laura Bell Bundy. The 33-year-old actress and singer came to the derby wearing a huge white sun hat, a gorgeous white dress, and matching heels.
Star Jones attempted to be the only one shinning at the derby, wearing a bright green dress, and finishing off the outfit with a massive matching green hat.
The men even got in on the long running hat tradition at the derby. Well, Boy George got in on it! He arrived in army print pants with a huge hat of his own and it was bright red!
Two other men looked rather tall dark and handsome at the derby. Tom Brady wore a simple black tuxedo and former Kim Kardashian hubby Kris Humphries did the same.
This is a sporting event that we truly love and look forward to every year. Click on the gallery above and let us know who your favorite derby celeb was, HollywoodLifers!
