Ladies in sky-high fascinators, gentlemen in fedoras and even a pug wearing a flowery headband marched down the avenue (Fifth Avenue, that is) for the annual Easter Parade. The tradition began in the 19th century, when well-heeled women showed off their Sunday best following church services. These days, the event is a extravaganza of creative millinery—we're particularly impressed with the decaled hang-glider head topper in our slide show.
