The most-coveted accessory this weekend? A hat, hands down. But in close second: a wet nap or some rawhide, depending on whether you were partying with Mama June or Kevin Spacey.
5. If the Hat Fits ...
Dear Princess Beatrice
, we've spent precisely two years and six days thinking about that fascinator you wore to the royal wedding
. Good news: We think we're finally ready to move on from all that pretzel-like, bow-ish goodness, and we have Miranda Lambert
to thank. The Southern belle-worthy hat she wore to Saturday's Kentucky Derby in a nod to tradition ruined our college baseball caps forever, while Coco Rocha left us wondering what would happen if we showed up to work wearing orchids on our heads.
(Girls, we tip our hats to you)
4. How Reese Restored Order
Speaking of hats: Reese Witherspoon
also stepped out well-accessorized on Saturday. But we're pretty sure she wasn't getting into the spirit of the derby or trying to hide some bed head. Her hat displayed the City of Atlanta Police Department's insignia in a move that speaks louder (and funnier!) than any statement following her April 19 arrest for disorderly conduct

3. What We Learned About Love at a Barbecue
In a time when even Selena Gomez
and Justin Bieber
struggle to keep it together
, we can't help but sometimes question if true love really exists. But now we redneckognize what it's all about. In a heartwarming union of barbecue and camouflage, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
's Mama June and Sugar Bear exchanged vows during a ceremony that could knock the chicken nuggets right out of 7-year-old Honey Boo Boo's mouth. No word on whether they've actually gotten married or simply recommitted to each other, but we'll be whipping up a celebratory batch of sketti either way.
(Good news, y'all!)
2. Kevin, We're in (Puppy) Love with You
If we had paws, we'd be putting them together for Kevin Spacey, who not only rescued a dog, but also named her Boston to honor
a city that's seen both tragedy and triumph in the last few weeks. Two good deeds, one weekend.
(A round of ap-paws)
1. Here Comes the Bride, All Dressed in Nude FlatsKeira Knightley
could have worn a garbage bag and slippers to her wedding, and we would have still looked on in half-envy, half-admiration. And although the strapless tulle dress she exchanged vows with James Righton in on Saturday was far from a trash receptacle, she did make a notably daring fashion decision: Check out those nude flats! Excuse us while we take the next 24 hours to both envy and admire her practical shoe choice ... and her hunky groom.
(Send your congrats)
