The lovely ladies in attendance were invited to showcase their finest Derby style on the “pink carpet” during the Longines Kentucky Oaks Fashion Contest located on the official Kentucky Derby Red Carpet at Churchill Downs. Participants were judged by the celebrity panel, actor and Longines Ambassador of Elegance Simon Baker, fashion television personality Carson Kressley and Southern Living style editor Stephanie Granada in attendance. The judges have the difficult task of selecting the lady who best represents the elegant style of the Kentucky Derby.
