Sorry, You're Not on the List
One in an occasional series of dispatches from parties you should have crashed.
Event: "Fashion for Paws" fundraiser for the Washington Humane Society on Saturday night.
Site: Italian Embassy.
Crowd: Chairman Michael Saylor and 1,000 Georgetown party people, average age of roughly 29, in blazers and cocktail dresses. "This is second-wife heaven!" murmured an older lobbyist.
Draw: Watching socialites in pretty clothes walk the runway, some with dogs, some with dogs in vests that matched their outfits.
Observations: Could the little-gold-dress girl keep control of the big golden retriever? Yes, but just barely. Also, if this ocean-advocacy thing doesn't work out for Philippe Cousteau, he's got runway swagger.
Food: Uh, cheese and crackers. But very good cheese. Also, cupcakes.
Bar: Long lines, plastic cups, but open and free-flowing.
After-party: Cover band the Frustrations playing in an adjacent tented dance floor, preppies grooving barefoot on the rain-damp marble, like a "Wedding Crashers" casting call.
Next year: They should take it to the next level -- walk the runway with leashed cats.
