Le Diner en Blanc!
Saturday night we went to Le Dîner en Blanc, or dinner in white, the world's largest secret dinner party.
This year's très chic picnic commenced at The Carnegie Library; as always, the location was announced only minutes before the event. We snapped Massey-Peabody Analytics' Rufus Peabody and Cultural Vistas' Claire Macfarlane, bookended by Brightfind's Justin Atkinson and Emily Whitt.
Guests brought their own tables, chairs, picnic baskets, white linens, and of course their most stylish white ensembles. Here, Surescripts' Sheku Riddle, IBO's Sheila Harrison, Air Force's Byron Lee, ASAE's Allyson Little, CSOSA's Arla Scott, Garnter's CJ Grant, DCPS's Shenikka Moore and CoSN's Rashonda Riddle.
Dîner en Blanc started in Paris 25 years ago with the intention of friendship, elegance and gallantry. This year, 2,500 DC-ites gathered at the sold-out event to experience the fashion, fine dining and fun. Here, University of Melbourne's Nigel Cossar, Bediz Group's Thomas Doyle and the Embassy of Monaco's Terry Crouch.
The exclusive guest list only included previous year attendees and their plus ones. Here, Collective's Charlie Paret, Lauren Spivey, Booz Allen's Kaitlyn Reilly and FCC's Dana Zelman.
Celebrity Cruises hosted a table serving cheese, risotto, filets, Apothic wine and champagne. Here, its rep, Phil Jacobs, is surrounded by District of Style's Rachel Hallinan, law student Chloe Shannon, Politico's Kate Murphy and The Herald Group's Molly Cox.
