136 THE 2017 CRYSTAL CHARITY BALL: AN EVENING IN THE ALPS IT'S A DATE: Saturday, December 2 TIP TOP: The Crystal Charity Ball chairman Pam Perella BLACK TIE DESTINATION: Chantilly Ballroom at the Hilton Anatole Hotel SECURE YOUR SEAT: Underwriting from $5,000 214.526.5868 ANITA ARNOLD DELILAH BOYD KATHERINE COKER JANIE CONDON LISA COOLEY TUCKER ENTHOVEN PAT HARLOE AMY HEGI JULIE HAWES PIPER WYATT HALL OF FAME HONOREE: CHARLOTTE JONES ANDERSON F or any modern Dallas swan, there's no greater honor than to be named to The Crystal Charity Ball's Ten Best Dressed Women of Dallas list — a title earned not just for one's impeccable taste and rare-air style, but for unyielding benevolence to The Crystal Charity Ball and the dozens of nonprofits it serves on behalf of children in need. It was the great fashion grand dame Diana Vreeland, after all, who said it's not just about the dress; it's about the life you lead in the dress. Neiman Marcus, which toasts its 110th anniversary this fall, has for 44 years transformed its downtown flagship store for a one-day fashion show featuring the Ten Best Dressed, plus a bonus: One of fashion's most recognizable designers jets in to present his or her latest collection. This year, design darling Zac Posen will do the honors, staging a full runway spectacle in the Neiman Marcus couture salon, which will be cleared of its mannequins and display cases and fully outfitted with a catwalk and stage lights. Posen's glamorous, feminine approach to design — and his charming, effusive personality — will no doubt cause a stir that September afternoon. In fact, his anticipated arrival already has: The Fashion Show and Luncheon sold out in May. The savviest socials know those runway-side seats don't stay vacant for long. Here, the Ten Best Dressed Women of Dallas photographed in Zac Posen's latest, at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek — a perfect locale as Posen is a Rosewood Ambassador for the storied hotel, and considers it his home away from New York.
