The Best Hats of the 2016 Denver DerbyParty



Photos by F4D Studio

When the Kentucky Derby began, women would attend the races dressed to the ninesand in 1875, that included their finest hats. Fast-forward 140 years at this year's Denver DerbyParty and you'll see that the tradition has stood the test of time.

Every year, the the Denver DerbyParty includes a Best Hat Contest, and each year exceeds the previous in creativity and extravagance. The 2016 bash was also the 15th Anniversary of the Denver DerbyParty, resulting in even more over-the-top everything (as if that's possible!).

The trends in this year's Best Hat Contest were cupcakes and butterflies. 

Take a look at some of the party guests' beautiful and creative headwear, as well as the winning 1st Place Derby Hat!
