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 😉
