Corcoran Ball draws crowd, orchestra

 Corcoran’s most anticipated gala of the year was celebrated this past weekend with over 1,000 attendees. Guests were welcomed to the black-tie event by spectacular décor, pianist and dozens of cocktail waiters. The evening began with a VIP cocktail hour, followed by an extravagant three course dinner and dancing with music of Radio King Orchestra and Phil McCusker & Orchestra. Proceeds from the Corcoran Ball go to the College and provide scholarships. Yoni Lee contributed to this report. 

 

 

Kids Get Creative at Corcoran

The Corcoran Gallery of Art has found new and creative way to get kids excited about the arts by combining lots of color with lots of noise!

An interactive drumming circle used dance and rhythm to rope kids in, while others explored color through paint. One project had the children create art pieces inspired by scenery in DC.

Taimur Baig: Spring 2011 Preview

He is one of my favorite designers and has dressed me for everything from charity fashion events to New York Fashion Week.

Taimur Baig is his name.. his brand.. his beautiful creations. Close friends, fashion leaders and investors toasted the DC based designer at a private party at Vetro celebrating his Spring 2011 Collection. Watch coverage of the night on WUSA9 here.

Oh Snap! The Young & the Guest List

It was rumored to never happen but we’re glad it did. The party to celebrate 250 of DC’s most influential movers ‘n’ shakers under 40.

Upon entering the stunning Washington Club at Dupont (with hot date wusa9’s Lauren Vance) we took our pics against the wall with the wonderful Joseph Allen and Alfredo Flores and were soon ushered into the next room for check-in. That’s where we exchanged double kisses with list-mates Paul Wharton looking fab hair pulled back & the Corcoran’s Rachel Cothran beautiful in a romantic sheath. We also were greeted by  Washington Life publisher John Arundel who told us about the magnificent venue.. a mansion built at the turn of the century by Chicago Tribune Editor Robert Patterson.  Extraordinary I think!  The mansion provided a warm air for the young on the guest list and then some. Among great history walked wonderful fashion and conversation. Events by Andre Wells superbly kept the rich feel of an ages-old establishment while adding touches of modern flair with bright flowers and strategically placed candles. The Asian fusion spread added a cultural taste and the swagalicious gift bags by Moki Media filled with everything from a Badgley Mischka parfum bottle to earrings by Karen Millen and Queen Bee were exciting to open.

All in all I’d have to say making the list is pretty neat— but after this night I think most would agree making the party is even better 😉
