Downtown Clubbing With Phoebe Bridgers and Uptown Ladies Adorned in Hats

The saying goes that April showers bring May flowers, and guests downtown broke out their finest rain gear, while hats — and not for the Kentucky Derby or coronation — could be seen for miles at a luncheon in Central Park.

To celebrate the opening of Gucci’s new boutique in the meatpacking district, the brand worked with Amy Sacco, the nightlife impresario behind the now-shuttered Bungalow 8 nightclubs, to stage a party on April 29 reminiscent of the neighborhood’s clubbing heyday. Celebrities, influencers, musicians and even a few self-proclaimed former club kids snacked on Jell-O shots while Disco, the longtime bouncer at Bungalow 8, worked the door. From 11:30 p.m. to about 12:30 a.m., Idris Elba, fresh off his set at Coachella, was the D.J.

A few days later, the Central Park Conservancy Women’s Committee held its 41st annual Frederick Law Olmsted awards luncheon on May 3 under a tent in the park’s Conservatory Garden. Philanthropists, socialites and even former Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg — who posed for pictures hatless — gathered at 11 a.m. for the “hat lunch,” dressed in their best florals and headpieces. Attendees admired one another over a lunch of cucumber salmon salad, while Jenny Price, the president of the Women’s Committee, said that the event had raised $4.3 million, which is to go toward supporting and maintaining the park.

The Most Dressed features great outfits from up, down and all around town.
