The WORST of the Derby hats

If you read this blog often, you know I have an affinity for hats. I love hats and next to the royal wedding, the Kentucky Derby is the mecca of big hats. However, I only spotted B-list celebs and only one hit the mark.

LOSERS

I honestly can’t believe people are a) still inviting KG to parties or b) people are still photographing her or c) websites are still publishing her photos.

Maria – I like your fascinator but the whole look is too much. It’s not the royal wedding, sis.

Oh no…Miranda Lambert – everything you have on looks like it came from a clearance rack at the buckle. I could have allowed it if you had worn cute heels, but the boots – ick!

Aubrey O’Day – not as bad as you could have been, I’ll give you that…

Oh, spoke too soon!  Aubs did a lil outfit change! Oh my…

Erin Andrews, this is just foul. That hat I could deal with…maybe paired with a LBD? But the pants? Girl you are thin! These make you look like Kirstie Alley! And the shoes…there is NO EXCUSE.

Salt & Pepa….

Vicki Gunvalson, if Miranda L. got her “getup” at the Buckle, you got yours at Target.

Jordin Sparks, I don’t so much have beef with your hat as I do your leggings. WTF. It is the derby.

WINNERS

There really was a lack of appropriately dressed peeps at this shindig. In fact I saw 2 that I appreciated. One was  Marisa Miller. First of all, it’s really hard to look bad with that body. Secondly, although I don’t particularly love the monochromatic look in beige, I do like her Great Gatsby-ish, 1920’s take on Derby Day.

Well done, Kate Walsh
