The most ridiculous hats of the Kentucky Derby and Oaks

One of the best parts about the Kentucky Derby is the fashion. Much like the exhaustively covered royal wedding, hats are the accessory du jour. While photos from tonight’s Kentucky Derby won’t start flooding in until later today, check out this great gallery of hats, hats, and more hats from the Kentucky Oaks, held last evening, where the nation’s top fillies competed for top honors. Plum Pretty narrowly edged out St. John’s River (ridden by a female jockey!) to take the $1 million prize.
