Last night, Washingtonian Magazine feted their 15 "Style Setters" at SAX Lounge. Marc Adelman, Brandon Andrews, Erik Bruner-Yang, John Carlson, Christo Doyle, Jonathan Fain, Elizabeth Baker Keffer, Barbara Martin, Nayan Patel, Heather Podesta, Jayne Sandman, Sai Sankoh, Bob Schieffer, Anchyi Wei and our fashion columnist, Becca Thorsen, were picked by Washingtonian's Fashion Editor Kate Bennett, and were photographed in a posh photoshoot at The Howard Theatre for their September issue.

Naturally, we stayed in our corner and celebrated Becca's award, so we are a bit thin on the photos...but it was a great party with lots of VIPs in attendance, including most of the style setters, Carl Ray, Aba Kwawu, all of Becca's siblings (Robert, James, John and Mollie), Vanessa Rodriguez, Sondra Ortagus, Kelly Anne Smolinski, Simon Joseph, some of the BrandLink girls (Annie PerezchicaAshley Mason-Greene, Danielle Bolger, Tace Joelle Samet), Dannia Hakki, Cori Sue Morris, Becca Clara Love, Gina Dakkouni, Katharine Ragsdale, Mike RocksHilary Rocks, Toni Henderson, Justin Lange, Katherine Kennedy, Liz Owens, Maggie Pitts, Hollis Pica, Lolly Amons, Elizabeth Thorp, Elizabeth Fassbender, Kara ManosKrista Johnson....

...and the-one-who-shall-not-be-named: Michelle Obama's stylist, who coyly told me Carl Ray's laundry was what she does for a living (Carl does Michelle's makeup). Oh, to be you for just one day...
