There was quite the array of events for celebs to attend this weekend, but the Kentucky Derby was by far the most classic. Nick, Vanessa & Jenny McCarthy were just some of the many who donned big fancy hats and sipped on mint juleps as they placed their bets. Jenny's hat, which won a contest put on by Chrysler and was made entirely out of Seabring materials, certainly made a statement while Vanessa's was more subdued.
On the red carpet Vanessa talked about matching her outfit with Nick's, while Jenny gushed about her relationship with Jim. She said, "It's the best relationship I've ever been in. It's not for the obvious reasons that people think of – 'Oh, you guys are just funny!' It's recognizing the much deeper level. We're both very spiritual people." Jenny may not have had Jim on her arm in Kentucky, but she somehow left the Derby in time to be by his side in Vegas for the big fight. As for the rest of the Derby festivities, it looked like everyone was having a blast!
