When you’re at the Kentucky Derby, does anything go or should you try to look good in a fashionable way?
And if it doesn’t look fashionable, is it OK for the media to make fun of you like they do
here at the Huffinton Post? Those snide photo by photo sidebar comments are amusing but cruel. It says things like:

Originally designed to be worn by Helena Bonham Carter at the Oscars, this hat has found new life startling horses at Churchill Downs.
Mixed Messages Hat: The horses hanging by their necks say, “no,” but that come-hither red bow says, “yes.”
Or are the wilder hat wearers looking for publicity and the yearly 10 minutes of fame that goes with their insanely imaginative hats? Sports Illustrated takes a gentle approach by not commenting at all, just displaying the photos.
What do you think? What kind of hat would you rather wear? Would you like the publicity?
