Oh Snap! 'Young Victoria' Screening

A select group of Washingtonians got a sneak peak of Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York’s new film “The Young Victoria“. The movie event began with a VIP reception at Degrees Bar in the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown. That’s where makeup artists from Red Door gave complimentary touch ups for the ladies… and specialty cocktails and Georgetown Cupcakes were on the menu.

 OMG reader Kirstin Holmes, an event planner from Alexandria was just smashing in her faux fur and vintage dress from a NYC boutique! She offered this review:

“The Young Victoria was a well put together film, full of romance and rebellion.  Emily Blunt portrayed young Victoria with attitude and charm.  The film was proper and yet really captured the real personalities of everyone in it that might not have been.  Angie, I soo agree with you on wanting to live in this time period.  Everything is so elegant!”

  “The Young Victoria” opens in limited theaters Friday.
