Heading out to this weekend's Kentucky Derby festivities must have been a little daunting for MTV cutie Vanessa Minnillo. After all, boyfriend Nick Lachey's last trip to the Kentucky Derby, with then-wife Jessica Simpson, was the subject of an entire episode of the hit reality TV series Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica. Given the fact the Kentucky Derby is known for bringing out the best in women's hatwear and "day at the races" dresses, the comparisons between Vanessa and Jessica were inevitable. So, how did Vanessa Minnillo fare in the Kentucky Derby style department? I think she more than held her own (see photo left).
