9 Most Ridiculous Hats From The 2013 Kentucky Derby

By now you already know the details of Orb’s victory at the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby. And chances are you’ve already seen pictures of female spectators wearing outrageous hats. But we took the liberty of combing though all those boring hat picture to weed out the nine most ridiculous examples we could find. Why? Because if we didn’t do it, who would?

Here are the nine most ridiculous hates from the 2013 Kentucky Derby.

Jockey Head Hat

Horse Racing: 139th Kentucky Derby

Yo dawg, I heard you like heads. So we put a head in your hat so you can… damn it. I’ve never been very good at using the Xzibit meme.

At any rate, this woman has a jockey head in her hat. That’s pretty damn ridiculous.

Horse Propeller Hat


This entry is a new take on the classic propeller hat. It’s every bit as stupid, but it has horses instead of propellers. Pretty clever.

Derby "44"


Based on the hat, I’m assuming this woman attended the derby for the 44th time. If not, perhaps the hat is celebrating the 44 types of state-mandated medication she is supposed to take to keep the bad voices away.

Pink Flamingos


In the film Pink Flamingos, a chicken is crushed between two people having sex, and an overweight drag queen eats dog feces. This pink flamingo hat is 1000 times more disgusting than any of that.

Airbrushed Derby


This bishop-style hat appears to have a horse race airbrushed onto its sides. As you know, airbrushing is the perfect compliment to a peach vest.

Diorama Hat


Who needs airbrushing? This woman appears to have a diorama of the the race resting upon her head. And based on the “44″ toward the front of the hat, I’m guessing this is the same crazy woman from the second slide. But this hat has so much going on, I’m still going to count it twice.

Early Times


One of only two men on the list, Tim Rask proudly displays the Early Times whisky logo on his hat. Early Times whisky might be the reason he decided that wearing this hat was a good idea in the first place.

Sexy But Stupid


This is by far the sexiest entry on the list. But sexy and stupid aren’t mutually exclusive. Your hat’s to damn high, lady! Take it down a notch.

Horse-Fight Hat


Here’s a good rule of thumb: If your hat is able to double as a drink tray, it’s probably not a good hat. Now take that thing off and use it to bring us some mint juleps.
