The Headdress Affair: A Floral Fantasy

Think the Philip Treacy hat Sarah Jessica Parker wore to the Sex and the City London premiere was over the top?

The ultimate in extravagant floral headwear was seen at the 7th annual Tulips and Pansies: The Headdress Affair on May 15. The purpose of the event was to raise money for Village Care of New York’s various support programs for the 1500 AIDS and HIV patients they care for daily.

Some of fashion’s top designers such as Betsey Johnson, Catherine Malandrino and Lela Rose teamed up with New York City’s most prestigious florists to create the most imaginative and outrageous toppers using fresh cut flowers and living foliage.

The headdresses were judged on the categories ‘Most Outrageous’, ‘Most Beautiful’, ‘Most Original’ and ‘Most Engaging’.

If you were a judge, which ones would be your winners?
