Hats Off!

The 25th anniversary Mad Hatter’s Tea at the Dallas Aboretum was back for the yearly array of everything from skyscraper sculptures to frothy fascinators. Adhering to the theme, “Adventures in Time,” the ladies (and some gents) sported clever toppers all in support of the arboretum’s Women’s Council. Event chairs Shay Geyer and Maggie Kipp wore coordinating “2” and “5” hats, while D’Andra Simmons snagged best in show with her Taj Mahal-themed creation, turban and all. A Jan Strimple-produced fashion show featuring Roberto Cavalli and Oscar de la Renta, a spirited awards ceremony and picture-perfect alfresco lunch topped off a beautiful morning.
