A hat can say a lot about you.
In “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” when Jane Russell is confronted by an angry wife who insists she “means business,” Ms. Russell dismisses her threat by retorting “Oh yea? Then why are you wearing that hat?”
Ouch. If you don’t want to suffer the same indignity then get thee to a good milliner. And you can do just that if you check out “A First Look at Fall: A Hat Tea” presented by The Millinery Arts Alliance in the Lobby of the Peninsula Hotel.
Veronica Chin is blocking buttery felts. Carla Faso is crafting fedoras you’ll want to wear all season. Laura Hubka has just trimmed the pillbox of your dreams, and Lisa Farrell’s imagination is running wild with feather fascinators. Laura Whitlock is making the functional fabulous, and Loreta Corsetti is creating hats to die for.
You’ll have the opportunity to be among the first to see just what this cool wave of creativity has wrought as Milliners will have dozens of stylish chapeaux designed just for the season, and will be on hand throughout Tea to assist with fit and selection.
Stop by just to browse the collections, or enjoy tea service, which includes a petite soufflé, scones, finger sandwiches and delightful desserts served with your choice of marvelous tea for the cost of $36. Or enjoy tea with a glass of Henriot Souverain Brut champagne for $45.
