Corcoran 1869 Society Fall Fête


Seven hundred DC’s partygoers filled the Corcoran Saturday night for the museum’s “Party with the Power Players.” With a Richard Avedon exhibit, an after party at the St. Regis, and Zipcar transfers to avoid the rain, all that was missing was the red carpet.


The Ashmead Group’s Kim Johnson, Irvine Contemporary’s Lauren Gentile, State Department lawyer Holly Rich, Apex System’s Rachel Selle, Bisnow writer Karin Tanabe, Apex’s Kim Sperber, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign’s Rachel Fischetti and Missy Kurek take a break from the dance floor.


Rebecca Neale and Ashley Miller, the best looking bouncers in Washington, made sure only the Power Players made it into the VIP bar area. Being civilized, the Corcoran allowed them cocktail breaks.


Documentary filmmaker and Iraq vet Zach Iscol with Senator Specter’s finance director Louisa Williams, and NJI Media Group prez Nathan Imperiale. Zach is working on a documentary about alternative approaches to American foreign policy but still finds time for art appreciation.


Move over New York. DC was fashion capital this weekend. Dissident Display’s Eric Brewer and the Corcoran’s Kristin Guiter, both in vintage finds.


The McCormick Group’s Andrew Reese flanked by Barbara Merola, with The Coalition for Government Procurement, and her sister, Corporate Executive Board’s Laura Merola. Barbara and Andrew, both Corcoran 1869 Society Steering Committee members, were happy to help sell out the event, one of the hottest tickets in town for under-40’s.

50th Washington International Horse Show

Queer Eye might have made him a star, but long before he was revamping the straight man, Carson Kressley was an award-winning equestrian. The actor and fashion guru showed off his talents at this weekend’s Washington International Horse Show.


Born into an equestrian family, and a member of the U.S. World Cup Saddle Seat equitation team, Carson took time out to talk shop with Chelsea Co of horsegirltv.com.


Only one of the fab five could pull off this look. When he’s not playing urban cowboy, Carson is telling women How to Look Good Naked on Lifetime’s makeover show.


The one and only Fight Night rolls around again next Thursday November 6; above is founder Joe Robert and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Peter Pace at last year’s. Despite a rocky economy, the Washington Hilton will again be flooded with more than 2000 fanatical business leaders having a good time for a great cause; they’ve already raised $2 million and sponsor income is up 10%. Last week, our friend Michela English, head of parent organization Fight for Children, announced $1.1 million in education and healthcare grants for low-income children in DC, all of which comes from Fight Night proceeds. www.fightforchildren.org.


ESL (aka Eighteenth Street Lounge) plays host to one of Washington's best Reggae nights. The infamous back patio might be closed or just too cold to brave but the dance floor on the second level will be turning up the heat in an all-natural Rastafarian chill way. 1212 18th St. NW.
