WHAD: Capitol File After-Party Recap



I was a little underwhelmed by the Capitol File party (presented by Microsoft Bing! – yes, exclamation point – and Renaissance Hotels). Maybe it was because I was standing around in the press area for a lot of it waiting for ScarJo to show up in her light-pink cupcake dress (which I’m sorry, I sort of love…I think she’s too adorable to do any wrong). She didn’t show, but Gayle King, Kim Kardashian, Ashley Judd, Tory Burch, Wolf Blitzer, Chris Matthews, Bobby Flay and Desiree Rodgers all did (Rodgers in a short red Jason Wu frock; she snuck around the step-and-repeat!) Anyway, I think I was just not in the mood, because everyone on the dance floor seemed to be having a blast. The locale (The Mayflower) was gorgeous, there were petits fours and a huge chocolate display from Edward Marc Chocolatiers and swag bags.

As for the dresses from the weekend…as of today I’ve seen a bunch of slideshows of everyone who attended, and I thought Jessica Alba looked amazing. I loved how gussied up Helen Thomas got in her pink satin. Thought the First Lady rocked that red dress like nobody’s business. And – looking to her and to Tory Burch, among others – it appears that big, jeweled doorknocker earrings are back.
