With summer gone and fall making a serious statement (hellllllo foliage!), that means two things: my leather jacket is back as my wear-everywhere staple, and the return of SOCIAL SEASON. Going into my second year covering the Washington, DC social scene for The Washington Post and we started with a bang; last Saturday I had the wild and wacky pleasure of photographing Night Nouveau, a surrealism-themed benefit for the S&R Foundation.
The only thing I love more than a good themed party is a good themed party where everyone buys in and brings the sartorial splendor. With an all-white backyard maze populated by creepy/fun white mimes, a fishbowl themed outdoor terrace, and some crazy costumes, I couldn't have asked for better photo fodder. The feature appeared in yesterday's Washington Post Style section (with a cameo on the section cover!) and can be found online HERE.
Curious about what I wore? Check out THIS photo on my Instagram. There's nothing like a little Comme des Garçon-inspired makeup as a surrealist, turban-clad 1960's doyenne (complete with my actual prom dress) with a sly wink to journalists "talking out both sides of their mouths". A little wit and a lot of style? Yes please.
