Not only was the weather perfect for the Gala but the hats were to die for. There was such an array of lovely hats that it was almost impossible to select the favorites. However, some did immediately take your eye and were so original that you wondered how they ever came up with the idea. The hat judges were Jeff Byron (Neiman Marcus), Louise Griffeth (Equest Woman's Auxilliary), Lezlie Noble (Philantrophist/Equest Volunteer), Kersten Rettig (Highland Park Village), Gary Riggs (Interior Designer & Artist) and Blake Stephenson (Modern Luxury Dallas).
