Mattel continues their celebration of Barbie’s 50th Anniversary with the release of the Kentucky Derby Barbie. Big hats are de rigeur at the Kentucky Derby and Barbie has her big hat at the ready. Her flouncy little sundress and pearl necklace makes Barbie ready to toss back a Mint Julep and bet the mortgage money on a long shot.

In a nice addition, Milliner Christine A. Moore will create up to 135 copy hats to commemorate the 135th Kentucky Derby and the Kentucky Derby Barbie. Proceeds will benefit charity.
