The Politics of Fashion: D.C. Unboxed is a film about fashion and D.C. I make an appearance (no idea what I said; hopefully it’s somewhat intelligent). It premiered earlier this month at Mazza Gallerie and will screen next week at E Street Cinema. Get your tickets (and check out the trailer) here.

…and speaking of movies, the Angelika Po-Up at Union Market opens this weekend. Read more about the Angelika here, but essentially, the original arthouse opened in 1989 in New York and before we know it, we’ll have our own as Union Market continues to expand into a fully formed destination for food, shopping, and entertainment. Click here to learn about showtimes this weekend and discounts & deals.

D.C. is investing in public art.

I feel a little weird saying this, but I need a witness here: Cindy Crawford’s kids are super hot.
