Bid on Zoe Saldana's Kentucky Derby Hat for Charity

05/12/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

The main races at the Kentucky Derby may be about the horses, but the women are there to compete in fashion — namely those legendarily extravagant hats. This year, actress Zoe Saldana wore a one-of-a-kind chapeau designed by noted American milliner Eric Javits on behalf of Derby sponsor GREY GOOSE Vodka. But not just interested in the fashionable side of the day, Zoe autographed the hat to be auctioned off to benefit benefit the St. Jude Children’s Hospital and an additional donation being made to the Barnstabe Brown Foundation. You can bid on Zoe’s signed hat at the online auction site Clothes Off Our Back. The auction, which started May 5 runs through May 15th so don’t wait to put in your bid!

Who the heck is Zoe whoever she is? and why would we want a hat preowned by someone no one’s ever heard of, charity, great, just get somebody people have actually heard of, and the hat is a design nightmare. No thanks.

I’m with GLO, that dress looks fab from what I can see! I’m not a hat wearer but I love that she’s doing something for a good cause.

p.s. just becuase she hasn’t been in rehab or going to jail. Doesn’t mean she’s a nobody.

Love Zoe, but don’t care for the hat. It was appropriate for the Kentucky Derby, but not a hat I would wear to the derby, but hey, to each their own, she looked beautiful regardless. While I don’t care for the hat, I like how she’s doing something for a cause.

I agree, from what I can see, I like the dress.

The hat is ridiculous, but it’s the type of hat commonly seen on English royals.

kim: Zoe Saldana has appeared a few movies. The role that comes to my mind is Anamaria in the first “Pirates of the Caribbean” :) Unfortunately, she was also in that stinker of a movie, “Crossroads”, starring Britney Spears =0
