There's been a lot to celebrate lately, from Stanley Cup championships to mega music festivals to landmark rulings on gay rights. Here's what some people wore to mark those occasions.

Russian tennis great Maria Sharapova celebrates her boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov’s (impending) gritty victory over Grega Zemlja of Slovenia at Wimbledon.

The men's 29th seed Dimitrov, for his part, celebrates his admirable flexibility. (Okay, he slipped on the grass)

Sharapova, of course, was not celebrating the breezy first-round victory by this woman, tennis rival and World No. 1 seed Serena Williams, who kicked off Wimbledon week with a nice scandal involving some choice words for Sharapova’s boyfriend, Dimitrov, who just happens to be Williams’ ex. Sharapova fired back, essentially calling Williams a homewrecker, thus setting up a potentially great-for-gossip Wimbledon final. Too bad Sharapova lost in the first first round (the slippery grass was a problem for her as well).

In any case, Williams -- ever the fashion plate -- gets around Wimbledon’s all-white dress code with some hot pink shorts and matching nails.

These people are celebrating the fact that they have tickets to Galstonbury, the world’s largest music festival that is known, apparently, for megaperformances and mud.

Hats, apparently, are an excellent accessory when it comes to all sorts of celebrations, including soccer matches....

...Stanley Cup finals...and the fact that one is alive. Here we have Boston Marathon bombing victim Jeff Bauman (right) and Carlos Arredondo, wearing the hat, who assisted Bauman at the scene, waving the Boston Strong banner before Game 6 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks, June 24, in Boston.

Hats are also good for celebrating equality for all.

The United States Supreme Court’s rulings on California's Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act brought cheers, tears, kisses and some neat duds.

While Kearstin Krehbiel, left, and Sophie Spinelle, went chic. The pair plan to marry in the future. Now that’s something to celebrate.
