Celebrities flocked to Louisville on Saturday for the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby. Among those making it to Churchill Downs were Josh Groban, Joey Fatone, Nick Lachey, and Brian McKnight. Star Jones, Kendra Wilkinson and Vanessa Minnillo were also on hand wearing colorful hats. See photos below of the stars at the Kentucky Derby.

Local Kentuckians Larry Birkhead and daughter Dannielynn Birkhead, Miss Kentucky Teen Katie George, and Miss Kentucky USA Caroline Ford were also on hand for the world-famous horserace.

Once again, NBC fashion commentators and figure skaters Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir dazzled in their outfits. Weir’s hats at the Kentucky Derby often get as much press as the horses, and he did not disappoint this year. Weir’s hat was made out of roses to reflect the race, which is often referred to as the “Running for the Roses.” Lipinski was more subdued in a flowing pink gown and a snazzy hairdo to match.

Many other musicians, TV personalities, and reality stars were also on hand participating in the festivities. American Pharoah is the 5-2 favorite horse to win the race which begins at 6:24pm EST. Check out the photos below of the stars attending the Kentucky Derby, and tell us what you think of their outfits.
