Kentucky Derby 2018: How to pick the best hat for your face shape


With the Kentucky Derby and royal wedding both coming up next month (May 5th and May 19th, respectively), we are already picturing all of the gorgeous, larger-than-life hats that the attendees will be donning!

In preparation for the big events, we chatted with Christine A. Moore, the featured milliner for the 144th Kentucky Derby, and got the inside scoop on all things hat, fascinator and hatinator-related. Watch the full interview below for tips on picking a hat, wearing a hat and the hottest hat trends of the season.

From the right way to use a hat's drawstring and comb, to the correct direction of a fascinator and to picking a style that will really stand out, the most important rule to keep in mind is just to pick out a hat that you love and feel your best in (our top choice would have to the hand-painted rose fascinator). Find out where you can get your hands on one of Christine's creations here, and shop a few of our favorites below!
