Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie Derby Hats Are Fashion-Forward (PHOTOS)

It's no secret that our favorite part of derby events is the hats. While the horses of Saturday's Epsom Derby 2013 ran a close race, we were a little distracted by the royals in attendance... and their amazing headwear.

The 234th Investec Derby at Epsom Racecourse saw plenty of chapeaux, most notably those worn by Queen Elizabeth and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. The queen wore a powder blue hat by Angela Kelly while the young royals made less traditional choices. Fashion-forward Princess Beatrice outfitted her black and white graphic dress with a vintage-looking burgundy cloche (How chic!) and Princess Eugenie wore a more modern neutral-colored angular hat with a feather detail.

Take a closer look at the royals' terrific toppers below. Which one is your favorite?
