Irish-born hat maker, Philip Treacy, who has long been turning heads in Europe with his beautiful creations, was the toast of New York in April. Celebrities turned out in force for a bash at Manhattan department store Bergdorf Goodman to don the season’s most sought-after Easter bonnets from the master milliner who’s based in London.

The bash was hosted by socialite Cornelia Guest and included such celebs as Iman (pictured wearing one of Treacy’s creations), soccer star David Beckham and singer Debbie Harry. ♦
