Kentucky Derby Hat on eBay
Would you want a Kentucky Derby hat after the Derby? You might if it sat on the head of model Petra Nemcova. This year she was the wearer of a new hat created by Eric Javits for Grey Goose vodka (last year, Jamie-Lynn Sigler was the celeb hat model). The one-of-a-kind hat is created each year and then sold on eBay to benefit the Barnstable-Brown Foundation to support diabetic research. The value of the hat is $1,000. The hat has spiraled silver gray braid which represents the lanes in which the horses's race and the dotted veil pouf symbolizes the moment when the horses leave the gate. Last time I checked on eBay, bids were up over $330. The auction ends on May 18.
