Kentucky Derby Style

With California Chrome being the clear standout to win in Saturday's 20-horse Kentucky Derby, I thought I'd give you some inspiration to help you put together the perfect Derby look. Whether you're going to a Kentucky Derby themed-party or staying home to watch the event, you must dress the part!

Whenever I see the top fashion styles from the Kentucky Derby, there's always one item that stands out - the over-the-top statement piece. Normally, that is in the form of a humongous sunhat or flower headpiece. You can choose to emphasize your look with lace hand gloves or chunky accessories, but your best bet when attending these events is to highlight your facial features.

One of my favorite looks that embodies the perfect race day outfit is from Miranda Kerr.


Everything about her look screams elegance, grace and style. She chooses to accessorize this flowy form fitting dress with one cocktail ring on her index finger and a glamorous flower headpiece. She uses a tinted lipgloss to brighten up her face and keeps the rest of her makeup very minimum.

What do my fashionistas think? How would you style yourself for the Derby?
