Meet Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave

There are plenty of adult activities to be had at the Kentucky Derby (see: mint juleps flowing freely.) But, the annual tradition also offers excitement for the kiddos — and you're never too young to wear a fabulous hat. At this year's big race, famous faces brought along tots who almost stole the show from the big winner, a colt named Justify. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' resident accountability coach, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, was one Derby fan who brought her little ones along to the track, with her husband, Edwin Arroyave. The California mom posed with her hubby and children — daughter Slate, son Cruz, and stepdaughter Isabella — in their race day best. While Slate and Isabella wore petal-pink dresses with matching headpieces, Cruz donned a mini powder blue suit for the occasion.

Dannielynn Birkhead, Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead's daughter, was another celebrity mini me in attendance. The 11-year-old has hit the Derby with her lookalike pops since 2010, and she dressed to the nines as usual.

The mini fashion plate looked adorable in a blue-and-white floral dress with a wide-brim white hat, while her dad matched her in a checkered, light blue suit. 

Meanwhile, Teddi wasn't the only Bravoleb to take Kentucky on May 5. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright — who are, of course, very familiar with the southern state — also hit the races. The Vanderpump Rules couple looked perfectly turned out in a curve-hugging red dress and chic black hat (Brittany) and a black-and-white suit (Jax). 

The Top Chef crew also represented at the races, and took the opportunity to check out the state that will host the show's 16th season.

Graham Elliot posted a snap that showed off his festive, colorful look, and wrote: "So excited to be filming this season of Top Chef in Kentucky. Going to have a lot of fun exploring this amazing state."

Tom Colicchio joined his fellow chef for some fun poses on the red carpet.
