The Hat Lunch as seen for the second time

By Pierre Crosby

It was my second year attending and photographing the Central Park Conservancy Hat Luncheon,
this time on a hot Spring day, with the vibrant party and blooming foliage bursting all around. The event is a unique site to behold; a flamboyant party filled with decadent dresses, jewelry, and of course hats, mingling around the only formal garden within Central Park, the Conservatory Garden. It is a crowded affair, with little room to maneuver between the throngs of sociable New Yorkers, but I managed to photograph some of my favorite outfits and catch a few candid moments of the party.
