Kentucky Derby: The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Celebrity Hats

BlogHer Original Post

Oh, Celebrities. You make everything more fun. Even The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.

Hollywood headed south this weekend to lend their glitz to the Kentucky Derby's glamour, and the results, of course, do not dissapoint. Except for the Brits on a Royal Wedding Day, nobody does it better. (Or at least, nobody tries as hard.)

Debra Messing looks like she had a gorgeous hat on but then had a run in with a Michaels on her way to the races.  (And I'm pretty sure her companion has fresh flowers in her hat!  Nice touch Penny Foster!)
