Celebs Are Coordinating Their Shoes & Hats for Chic Kentucky Derby Red Carpet Looks

The Kentucky Derby is here — and as usual, it’s all about the hat and heel combos.

Celebrities arrived to Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., clad in stylish hats that they coordinated to their shoes.

Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn, looked adorable in a pale pink dress with ruffles and pearls. The 12-year-old tied together her look with an oversized, bow-adorned hat and pink block-heeled sandals. Her father, Larry Birkhead, wore a pale pink suit with a fun horse-printed tie and brown lace-up shoes.

Elsewhere, Star Jones looked Derby-ready in a floral halter-style dress and black sandals with rosette detailing. The talk show host wore an over-the-top feathered hat — plus, she carried an adorable white dog that had on a black tulle bow.

NSYNC alum Joey Fatone proved that men can join in on the hat and shoe game, too. The former boy band member wore a white and blue patterned suit with a white button-down and a matching bow-tie. He had on a blue newsboy cap and white Adidas Stan Smith sneakers.
