#TBT: Vanessa Minnillo's Derby Getup

(Source: Jeff Gentner/Getty Images North America)When you're headed to the Kentucky Derby, you have to pull out all the stops. It's go big or go home. It's true of the gamblers, the riders, and most certainly the derby-goers themselves. With that much horsepower throttling over the finish line, every aspect of the annual festival is amped up, starting with the hats—and we can't wait to see the headgear this weekend.

Back in 2010 when Vanessa Minnillo and husband Nick Lachey showed up in Louisville for the race, they looked every inch the couple in love. Lachey matched his tie to his wife's pink silk cocktail dress, a move that made us think with fondness back to our own high school proms. But it was Minnillo whose look stole the show.

Her pastel ribbons played off her simple strapless dress that tastefully showed off her beautiful figure and peep-toe nude heels. A win!
