Crown Oaks was a day of lovely lace, feminine frills, and pretty pastels. It’s been a triple crown win so far for Jennifer Hawkins, who was a vision in her baby-blue Talulah dress with ruffles, perfectly complemented by a floral Natalie Bikicki headpiece. White ruled the day, and so did bows and boater hats. Here now is the best of Oaks Day Fashion 2016.
