Last night we went to the Washington launch party for Candace Bushnell in honor of her newest novel, Killing Monica, at the W Hotel.
We snapped the famed Sex & the City author flanked by sisters and Georgetown Cupcake co-founders Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne and Bluemercury’s Megan Mastroianni.
The cocktail party featured a book signing on the hotel’s POV rooftop. Here, Politics & Prose Bookstore's Lex Lindell, Susan Fallon and Trish Peva.
Killing Monica is Bushnell’s seventh novel, and tracks the fictional path of a famous Manhattan writer who fakes her death to get her life back from her famous book character for which she's been forever typecast; she claims it does not mirror her life alongside Carrie Bradshaw. Here, Four Seasons Hotel’s Katie Shannon with mom and realtor Susan Shannon and STK’s Hollis Pica.
Guests could also visit Bliss Spa Beauty Bar for mini manicures and treatments, view a Kendra Scott jewelry preview, and get glammed at a Bluemercury Lipstick Bar. Here, BrandLinkDC principals Barbara Martin and Jayne Sandman flank W Washington brand manager Chloé Gray-Le Coz and GM Meade Atkeson.
