Saturday night my lovely date Amy Harder of the National Journal and I got all glamed up and headed to the Washington Hilton for the pre-White House Correspondent’s Dinner reception hosted by the National Journal, CBS News and The Atlantic. This one of the few events noted in my calendar where I can justify adding a full-length gown to my wardrobe. The private cocktail party is a great way to kick off the evening and have some time to mix and mingle before the notables in the crowd head down to the dinner (which is also hosted in the hotel).
Making my way through the room, I met the likes of Jeremy Renner, Julie Chen, Hugh Dancy, Claire Danes and Bob Schieffer! All the the men we’re especially charming (and oh so dapper), and Julie Chen has one of those presences (and the most amazing posture) that just instantly makes you want to more like her in any way possible. (Plus how amazing is that Valentine dress she’s in!).
