It’s Derby Day! Check out photos of celebrities at the 2017 Kentucky Derby in the gallery below!

For many stars, the annual Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs is an event to see and be seen. Celebrities from movies, music, sports and television travel to Louisville for a weekend of parties tied to the famous horse race. A staple of the spring season, many men dress in eye-grabbing suits, while for the ladies, it might as well be called “Hat Day” instead of “Derby Day.”

Thousands of spectators show up every year, but if you’re famous and/or wealthy, there’s a red carpet to walk and exclusive seating in a section known as “Millionaire’s Row.” The VIP area is also under cover, which is especially important this time around as rain is dousing the race track today. So, who said to hell with mother nature and dressed up for a good time?

There’s rockers and boy banders (Richie Sambora, Joey Fatone), journalists and TV hosts (Katie Couric, Harry Connick Jr), daytime divas and primetime hunks (Christell Stause, Justin Hartley), as well as sports stars past and present (Jerry Rice, Richie Igcognito). Even celebs watching from afar are excited about the festivities. Reese Witherspoon tweeted, “That’s right! It’s the #KentuckyDerby y’all! Who’s ready!? #HatGoals #AudreyHepburn #MyFairLady.”
