All The Red Carpet Ridiculousness & Fabulousness From Kentucky Derby Weekend

May 5th, 2013 // Leave a Comment

Along with the spectacle of horse racing, The Kentucky Derby is know of the outrageous fashion and hats the attendees where to the event.

Orb won the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby. According to NBC, Orb paid $12.80 to win, $7.40 to place and $5.80 to show. The total purse for the 2013 Derby is $2,199,800, according to The Associated Press, with $1,439,800 going the winner.

While the ladies had the attire down pretty well (other than a few prom dress looks), I think some of the men confused Derby attire with pimp attire. 

“The weather impacted the fashion, but it didn’t stop it,” said New York City designer Christian Siriano, in town for his second Kentucky Derby. “There were a lot of clear rain ponchos. But people still brought the drama. I saw a lot of bright colors and big hats underneath the rain gear.”

Launch the gallery to check out all of the looks.
