Look at the Golden Gate Fields on Kentucky Derby Day of May 7, 2011, and this is also the chance for the 3rd Annual Run for the Roses Hat Contest! Just like the royal wedding last week, the Kentucky Derby will be sure to attract the attention of those headpieces of its attendees on Saturday. In honor of this big race in Louisville, it is also a tradition that all the ladies should wear big and small hats to inspire the splendid Race.
Today, I will sift through some archives to discover those iconic images of female wearing headpieces directly from the pages of Vogue. These various Hats ranging from the elegant to the ridiculous styles have been considered to be the symbol and trademark of the event which is held annually at Churchill Downs in Louisville.
Christine Moore, a New York-based milliner said that those quintessential Kentucky Derby hats are all featured with broad brims of pink color, which looks very feminine in the southern bell types. In his opinion, those hats which make the wrong statements are usually unsuitable to wear.
And the Kentucky Derby is deemed to grab numerous celebs, such as Kate Gosselin, Marissa Miller, Miranda Lambert, and the Jonas Brothers. They will all attend the Barnstable Brown Party on Friday. So the Kentucky Derby is also called the biggest Eve Gathering.
It is reported that there is more than $1,800 to appraise and award those people who wear those best hats on Golden Gate Fields that day. And the best winner will be free to enter into the third Annual Run of the Roses Hat Contest. So everyone who wants to win in the Kentucky Derby should prepare a beautiful and elegant hat, which will help you succeed in the contest on May 7, 2011.
