Kim Kardashian’s Hat at the Kentucky Derby

We all know Kim Kardashian is a natural beauty & her fashion choices are copied & critiqued all over the world! Well tonight I’m having a look at the hat she wore at the Kentucky Derby last year.

Millinery isn’t as popular in the States as it is in the UK. In fact the Kentucky Derby is really one of the only hat wearing events.

I was therefore a little disappointed that Kim didn’t go for something a bit more exciting.

Kim is seen in a plain white dress with black gloves, shoes & bag, so really…..hat wise…..the world is her oyster. And yet she choose to wear a grey, non-structured, straw design with a very simple decoration.

I’ve made a free form straw design myself; but I choose to have mine so that it lifted off the face a lot more.

I don’t particularly like the shape of Kim’s hat. I feel it is a little flat, and is very far forward covering her face a lot. This may be to shade her from the sun though!

The hat is topped off with a frayed crin bow & a single striped quill. I like the decoration but I think the the quill flattens the shape of the design again, I think I’d prefer it if it was pointing upwards.

I think I’m just a little under-whelmed by this hat. I thought Kim would’ve added another splash of colour or a more interesting design.

Anyway… Ascot will soon be upon us. I wonder what everyone will wear then?
