Plum Pretty and Hats for The Oaks

May 7, 2011 at 9:36 am Leave a comment

File:Star...Often refered to as Lilies for the Fillies, The Oaks is Churchill Downs’ big horse race on the eve of Kentucky Derby.  Oaks Day has gone pink to support breast cancer awareness and the fashions and hats reflect the color. Plum Pretty was the 2011 winner and was at the finish line before the other horse knew what happened.  Plum pretty is a great way to describe Friday’s spring fashion scene.  Check out these lovlies at CNN and Courier-Journal.  The gentlemen can also be supportive in a new Pink Panama.    There are more than 70 events and celebrations in the two weeks around the derby including the Barnstable Brown Gala, Derby Eve Julep Ball, the Illumination Ball to river boat crusies.  Saturday morning’s Today Show was less than appreciative on the hat front.  As the Kentucky Derby is one of the few sporting events that attracts more women viewers than men, NBC needs to step it up on the fashion coverage.
