{{ oneIndex }} / {{ images.length }}


On Wednesday, August 25, D Magazine celebrated some of Dallas’ most influential women and its first ever women’s issue with an exclusive evening of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. More than 125 guests gathered at Live Nation’s newest venue located at 1323 N. Stemmons to honor the women featured in D’s September cover story, “78 Women Who Make Dallas Great.” Honorees were encouraged to bring other fabulous females who have had a significant impact on them or a mentee, resulting in a veritable who’s who list of inspirational Dallas women.

Many of the issue’s Grande Dames were in attendance, including Adlene Harrison, the 97-year-old first female mayor of Dallas; Mollie Finch Belt, publisher of the Dallas Examiner; Kay Bailey Hutchison, the first female U.S. Senator from Texas; Dr. Gail Thomas, former President and CEO of the Trinity Trust, Paige Flink, former CEO of The Family Place; Hon. Jeanne L. Phillips, former Ambassador; and 15-term Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson. Also in attendance was Kanarys CEO Mandy Price, whose magnificent cover was revealed at the event.

Luxury cars from title sponsor Park Place Dealerships flanked the building, while inside guests browsed jewelry and enjoyed bubbly from the champagne wall provided by Pampillonia and sampled products from Revision Skincare. D Magazine Partners Editor-in-Chief and CEO Christine Allison welcomed the guests, and D Magazine Executive Editor Kathy Wise shared insight on the September issue and the women included in it. Event partners Branching Out Events, DJ Rose Red, Motus Booth, Perch Décor, Pinky’s Valet, and Proper Catering & Events—all women-owned businesses—were instrumental in setting the stage for a magical evening.
