It's Go Big or Go Home When It Comes to Kentucky Derby Style

Sure, the main attraction at the Kentucky Derby may be the horse races, but the real reason we like to tune in? The style. After all, this is the one event where oversize hats and fit-and-flare dresses are practically a uniform, and plenty of our favorite stars show up dressed to impress. This time around, we saw tons of classic looks, from Sarah Hyland channeling Kate Middleton in a fascinator to the guys wearing some dapper-looking, light-colored suits. Keep reading to see what everyone wore on the red carpet and at the preparty, decked out in their Derby best.

He may be playing Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, but this time around, Stephen left his creepy hockey mask and stick at home. Still, while his navy suit and patterned tie are sharp, we can't stop staring at his shoes: just look at those blue laces!

Josh Groban kept it kind of casual, skipping the tie and leaving his white shirt slightly unbuttoned under his light blue suit.

We don't know which piece we love more: Kendra's floppy hat or those high-waisted black pants. So chic!

It's like we've traveled back in time. We're totally getting Audrey Hepburn — or at the very least, Amal Clooney — vibes from Vanessa with those gloves and vintage hat.
