PC Moment: More than 500 fashionable philanthropic women dished and dined at the Pop art–themed The Woman’s Hospital of Texas Annual Labor Day Luncheon, supporting The March of Dimes; Woman’s Hospital underwrote the day so that all proceeds went to the cause. The Boutique Bazaar opened early in the day for a chance to shop looks from 26 local boutiques including BB1 Classic, Tres Chic, French Cuff and Pomp & Circumstance. Matthews’ style seminar was headlined by Ramos’ dramatic catwalk choreography including Page Parkes models in fur and fringe, shining a spotlight on designs from BB1 Classic, Chloe Dao, Woody’s Furs and Lucho.
