Kentucky Derby Celebrity Pics: Sarah Hyland, Kendra Wilkinson & More
Does she ever not look amazing? Sarah stunned at the Derby sporting a pretty and modest floral dress wile pairing it with a crimson feathered headpiece. The Modern Family star looked perfectly dressed for spring in her pretty ensemble!
Kendra went for a completely different look than Sarah’s springtime girly look! The former Playboy model opted for chic high-waisted black pants, a white blouse, and a marvelous big black hat! So stylish! The night before, on May 1, Kendra attended a pre-Kentucky Derby gala with her husband, Hank Baskett, 32. The couple, who recently reunited after a rough patch, were looking extremely happy together at the event and we loved seeing them together.
Also in attendance at the Derby was Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, 8, and her dad Larry Birkhead, 42. Larry is from Louisville, and it’s so sweet that he took his daughter to the huge event! The father-daughter duo looked adorable as they hugged each other for pics on the red carpet, both matching in white and baby pink ensembles.
Figure skaters Johnny Weir, 30, and Tara Lipinski, 32, also made quite the appearance on the carpet! While Tara wore pastel pink and a matching headpiece, Johnny went all out wearing a rose-adorned headpiece — with a mint julep sticking out of it! We think it’s fair to say Johnny won best hat this year.
