"I'm just happy to be here and seeing all the beautiful people," NBA legend, Scottie Pippin said. 

Let's not forget the fashion. Country music star Miranda Lambert strolled down the carpet with a touch of pink, while Seymour kept it classy in all red.

But hat or no hat, everyone said they like being around old friends, and new ones, at Churchill.
