Celebrities are bringing a taste of Hollywood to Louisville on Saturday for the 2016 Kentucky Derby. Check out the photos below!

The 142nd running of the Kentucky Derby is welcoming stars from music, movies, and television to watch the highly-anticipated horse race. In some cases, festivities began as early as Monday. But on Saturday afternoon, a red carpet was rolled out for celebs to strike a pose before they take the stands at Churchill Downs.

And, as become tradition at the annual event, the biggest fashion statement is the hats women are choosing to accessorize their look. Returning face Tara Lipinski went with a feathered red design this year, while Star Jones donned a pink floral concoction. The cutest part, though, was definitely her furry white dog.

Meanwhile, Johnny Weir seemed to be inspired by both “I Dream Of Jeannie” and a horse’s mane (see photo above). It also wouldn’t be the Kentucky Derby without an appearance from Larry Birkhead and daughter Dannielynn, whose mom is the late Anna Nicole Smith. Other stars in attendance range from Lady Antebellum and Joey Fatone to Adrian Grenier Stephen Amell.

D’Angelo Russell suited up for the gathering as well, so it’s probably a good thing horse-loving Iggy Azalea and fiance Nick Young aren’t at the star-studded event. Check out the red carpet photos from the 2016 Kentucky Derby below!
