The Kentucky Derby kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 5! It is one of the biggest events in the equestrian world and this year’s races will mark the 146th event. Every year, it is a breeding ground for great fashion and big risks.
Sometimes it pays off—staple Dannielynn Birkhead always delights—and other times celebs will go a little too over the top with their bold, colorful looks. We see you Joey Fatone! At the end of the day, it’s all part of the fun of celebrating a day out to the course.
Luckily, we’ve rounded up the most OMG moments of pure fashion delight from the Kentucky Derby red carpet of years past.
