The Inaugural Pajama Jammy Jam

By Stephanie Merry

1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW -- There was quite a mix of ages and fashion choices at the Obama Pajama Party. Attendees ran the gamut from American University students to the middle-aged set, but the variation in attire is what really caught my eye.

John Bambas, Nicole Bambas and Chris Tantillo were among the pajama-sporting attendees during the Obama Pajama Party at the Ronald Reagan Building. (Stephanie Merry)

Though a number of guests wore jewel-encrusted floor-length gowns, there were also a lot of people who took the invitation at face value and donned plaid robes and flannel pants -- or even a union suit.

Carrie Fisher, the party's big name celeb, wore her pajamas with a brightly patterned silk robe to complement her sparkly eye makeup. The erstwhile Leia was there to support both the cause (the Pajama Program, which supplies pajamas to children in need) and a close friend who works with the program (Fisher's "token Republican friend").

If seeing Carrie Fisher in her jammies wasn't enough, the party also featured some contagious dance music and an array of cupcakes that could make Julia, who maxed out during cupcake wars, want to take a bite. The strangest thing about the evening was that people I talked to were into celebrating the inauguration at the Ronald Reagan Building on a Sunday night but not along Pennsylvania Avenue on Tuesday.

That goes for Carrie Fisher, too, who shook her head at the thought. "It's too cold," she said.
