Derby Hats 2011 – The bigger the better

Our style maven, Margit Fawbush, brings us the scoop from Churchill Downs

The much anticipated first Saturday in May is a treat for people watchers and horse-racing fans alike. Yes, I love watching the ponies run (and placing a few bets as the Juleps grease my pocketbook), but mostly, I love the hats. Here are a few that stood out – both in a good way and well…it’s a matter of opinion. But I can tell you with confidence that these ladies looked long and hard for just the right chapeau and spent a pretty penny. And in honor of the die-hard Derby fans who take a more tongue in cheek approach – I’ve included a shot of a long-standing annual favorite – she’s got spunk!
