We’ve got exactly one week to get our Derby attire ready.  Louisville, Kentucky has an extra holiday on its calendar.  One more than the rest of the country.  The Running of the Roses is no doubt the biggest celebration in the city each year.  This is a holiday with a preamble of nearly two weeks before the big day….hat day!  Need a little inspiration for both your “derby” and your home for race time?  Keep looking!

Audrey Hepburn represents an iconic role of Derby style as “Eliza Doolittle” in the 1964 film “My Fair Lady” and her transformation hat and gown at the “Derby”.

The Kentucky Derby might be “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports,” but there is another competition in the stands… the campaign for the most spectacular and stunning hat!

Since 1875, the Kentucky Derby has been a showcase for the most stylish of wardrobes.  Although Derby fashion has evolved throughout the years, hats have been a must have accessory throughout.

No matter if a Kentucky Derby hat is adorned with flowers, ribbons, bows and feathers, these hats make a statement!  The ornate hats worn by women to the race are a relic of the past dating back to a race in England that the Kentucky Derby was patterned after.
It was a tradition, used by race promoters, to market the Kentucky Derby to women and make it a see-and-be-seen event.

THE TRADITION CONTINUES!

What fun we had with these pairings of hats and homes!  Our obsessions, for both the derbies and the decor, are both classic and fun.  We imagine in all the examples above there is one you’d love to own.  We know there will be many more we will admire during the broadcast.  However, beware, the media seems to show us this particular theme the most often!
