The Kentucky Derby is ALL about Hats!
It has long been a tradition of the Kentucky Derby which began in 1875, for ladies to wear their finest to the race and back then it included a hat. This tradition has stuck and become part of the event and Dig This Design was lucky enough to have a reporter on the scene, my good friend, Lori Wilson.

Lori and her sister have a long standing tradition of girl tripping to the Deby. Her beautiful sundress and matching hat, designed by my favorite designer, Mochachino, really brought the flavor of the event.
The third time is a charm for Lindsey Vonn, attending the event for the 3rd year in a row. She kept it sexy with a little retro 90’s style blouse with a built-in choker. I don’t think the hat was the focal point here, but either way, she was looking hot Derby style!
I always dig Johnny Weir’s fashion sense and he and Tara Lipinski brought it to the Derby! This duo, for the third year, were NBC’s “fashion and lifestyle experts” for the Kentucky Derby.

Bigger is not always better, especially if you are sitting behind this Derby goer.
I do love a party and one of these days I am going to join this one. The Derby with all of its glam and all of its traditions is a horse race that only last two minutes, but the party leading up to it, surrounding it and after it continues much longer!
