FIRST PEEK
AT SEX AND THE CITY


One of the great new condominiums of the region has its grand opening this weekend: Lionsgate, in the heart of Bethesda. We believe it will become a well-known landmark of luxury and convenience. See their ad to right, and tell 'em we sent you!

 

We sent our ace reporter Stacey Pfarr at 7:30 this morning to the first public show in America of Sex and the City, held of all places in Tysons. Hosted by Cynthia de Lorenzi's deals n' heels group, gals met at Saks and were shuttled by limo to the theatre where they jumped effortlessly into the Manolos and cosmos action. 

 

No this isn't Charlotte, Samantha, Carrie, and Miranda (although their haircolors match), but Cynthia, second from left, with Laura Lee of Laura Lee Designs, Hinge's Jen Sterling, and Zephyr Strategy's Kelly Harman. Laura, whose handbags have been featured on Desperate Housewives, told us the inspiration for her line comes from "seeing way too many Pradas, Guccis, and Louis Vuittons" and wanting to offer something less cookie cutter.


REGION'S MOST GLAMOROUS BAKERY?

 

Yes, even actor Russell Crowe has lined up at Georgetown Cupcake at the corner of M and Potomac. Above, sisters Katherine Kallinis and Sophie LaMontagne gave up jobs in private equity and Gucci to start baking at 4:30AM. If you haven't heard, they're the latest phenom, with lines around the block. "We took our grandmother's recipes and modernized them," says Katherine. "We want to be the best of the best, the Louis Vuitton of cupcakes."


ELIE WIESEL IN DC

 

Noble Laureate Elie Wiesel Tuesday night at the historic 6th and I St. synagogue downtown, interviewed by New Republic literary editor Leon Wieseltier. The world's most famous Auschwitz survivor talked about how he maintains his religious faith.  


STEP ASIDE, SPY MUSEUM!

 

FOX superstar John Walsh, left, host of the longest-running show in FOX history (America's Most Wanted; 21 seasons) on top of the brand new Museum of Crime and Punishment on 7th Street the other night, with Museum founder John Morgan, a Florida lawyer.


RECOGNIZE THIS?

 

Yep, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaugh slept here—the famous house of the Wedding Crashers, aka The Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels on the Eastern Shore. Jane Seymour and Christoper Walken stayed on for a month after filming. This is GM John Valpone, who runs it; the place dates back to 1815. Rates start at $330 a night, and they just set up a sailing school.
