Silver Mettle!

| March 30, 2012 | Parties

THE SOIREE Silver may always fall victim to the stereotype of second place, but the lustrous element was the unquestionable victor at the Dallas Museum of Art’s 20th anniversary Silver Supper. Hosted in the barrel vaults and themed “The Great Makers of American Silver,” the dinner offered an unparalleled display of far more than a silver platter’s worth of the DMA’s treasures—from those flaunting Gilded Age opulence to more modern and progressive works. SILVER LINING Chaired by Peggy Sewell, with Highland Park Village serving as the inaugural presenting sponsor, the Silver Supper raised funds for the DMA’s Decorative Arts Acquisition Endowment Fund, with its comprehensive and world-renowned collection of 19th and 20th century American silver. TRENDSPOTTING It wasn’t only atomic number 47 that shone brightly, though. More than 150 guests strutted out a gold mine of fashion, where chic was the dominant style theme of the night. Jacqueline Anderson’s Norma Kamali from the spring 2012 collection was sheer (and sparkling!) perfection. Peggy Sewell went classic with a black-and-ivory Carolina Herrera, while her daughter Jacquelin Sewell Taylor kept it sunny in citron-colored Lanvin. Another mother-daughter moment? Deedie Rose wore a wispy metallic frock designed by her daughter, Lela Rose.
