It’s time for the 140th Kentucky Derby, which means it’s time for gambling, mint juelps and the most outrageous and extravagant hats ever made.
The large headwear has become synonymous with Derby weekend, and the 2014 edition of the race brought out some of the biggest and brightest hats. We aren’t quite sure how people keep from tipping over in these colossal works of art, but that just makes the feat all the more impressive.
Check out some of the most elaborate hats in the photos below, with none other than Johnny Weir, stealing the show once again as he just absolutely crushes the hat game.
