The Kentucky Derby is unlike any other event in the world, and having just wrapped Derby 138 festivities a last week, I can promise you this: there is NO shortage of amazing looks and impeccably dressed women (and men!) this time of year in Louisville.
In the spotlight at The Julep Ball on Derby Eve is this sparkling metallic cocktail dress with a full skirt and a plunging deep-v back. I adore the untraditional shorter length for a formal event, and the surprise of the back detail (and…get ready…pockets!!) made this woman one of the most envied of the evening.
One of the first looks that caught my eye as I arrived at Churchill Downs on Derby morning was this bold orange and turquoise combo. I never saw another look like it all day, and in a sea of southern belles wearing floral and wide-brimmed hats, that’s remarkable in and of itself! Whether this gal bet on I’ll Have Another at the racetrack or not, she still had a winner with her Derby look.
