PC Moment: It was as if Cinderella’s fairy godmother waved her magical wand, because over the course of one night, Highland Park Village was transformed into a whimsical “Fun Fair.” The cause de célèbre: British fashion designer and key style influencer Stella McCartney came to Dallas for a visit, marking her second official trip to the city in 10 years and her first ever to the eponymous store in HP Village. While local band Loyal Sally provided a musical snack for party-goers to dance to, others could be spotted playing a variety of games: Ring the Bottle, High Striker and Bust-a-Balloon.
