First lady’s makeup artist, Carl Ray, leaves Georgetown salon after 16 years

When it comes to glamour, the tectonic plates of the Georgetown power structure are officially shifting. After 16 years as the in-house make up artist at George, Carl Ray, the man responsible for first lady Michelle Obama’s “I woke up like this” HD-ready look, is leaving the posh Four Seasons salon. For just about two decades, […]

Bunny Mellon’s $70M estate finds no takers, will be broken up

It seems that the $70 million price tag on the Virginia spread once owned by philanthropist and socialite Bunny Mellon is too rich for even the deepest-pocketed buyers’ blood. After the property sat on the market for a year with no takers following Mellon’s death in 2014, the executor is breaking the 2,000-acre Disneyland for the Tasteful […]

Kevin Spacey spotted sipping wine on a Georgetown rooftop bar, and his visit has nothing to do with ‘House of Cards’

Hey, isn’t that … President Underwood, a.k.a. “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey, taking in the views from the rooftop bar at the Graham Georgetown hotel Saturday night? The casually dressed actor (no really — we’re talking basketball shorts here, people) was spotted sipping a glass of pinot grigio and looking, according to a tipster, […]

5 minutes with Kevin Hart

It’s easy to forget that Kevin Hart doesn’t do politics. The funny guy’s got all the fixings of a future congressman — he can work a packed room in less than 60 seconds, coax a shy 4-year-old into a selfie, sound authoritative on serious issues, do about five TV interviews at once, then rinse and repeat. And all on zero sleep. […]

Searching for ‘Alyssa from D.C.': The woman who saved Bono and got booed for telling everyone about it

No good deed goes unpunished. That’s an old lesson recently learned by “Alyssa from D.C.,” the super southerner who saved U2 frontman Bono, and by the rocker himself, who tried to thank Alyssa with VIP tickets and instead ticked off an entire arena. The backstory: Back in November Bono got into a pretty bad bicycle accident in Central […]

Aerosmith scored tickets to GOP presidential debate

OK, so Donald Trump might be the huuugest, classiest (well, at least the flashiest) candidate at the GOP presidential debate Thursday night in Cleveland. But the audience, too, will include at least a couple of bona fide rock stars. Members of the band Aerosmith will be among the 5,000 folks watching the 10-candidate event in person at the […]

Is Hillary Clinton a Belieber? Justin Bieber’s manager hosts a fundraiser.

Diner en Blanc returns to D.C., and tickets are still impossible to get

The blanc is back. In less than a month, Washingtonians who aren’t on the list (or in the know) will be collectively scratching their heads as hordes of who’s who wearing all white (not cream, not ivory, not navajo) spill out of Metro stations across the city, dragging portable tables for two in their wake. What exactly […]

Cause Celeb: ‘American mom’ Gwyneth Paltrow wants to know what’s in her food

Celeb: It was a two-for-one VIP special, with actress/cookbook author/lifestyle blogger Gwyneth Paltrow and her mother, actress Blythe Danner, visiting the Hill on Wednesday. Cause: Labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food. Show More Summary

GMO labeling foes: Gwyneth Paltrow has history of ‘nonsensical’ statements

Gwyneth Paltrow already has so many of her own labels: “actress,” “cookbook author” and our favorite, “lifestyle guru.” Let’s add another — human lightning rod. No sooner had supporters of efforts to label genetically modified organisms (or GMOs) announced that the “Goop” creator would visit Capitol Hill on Wednesday to advocate for their cause than GMO-labeling […]

President Obama’s birthday ? Dinner at Rose’s Luxury and well wishes from Bill Clinton

Hey, isn’t that… President Obama, surrounded by family and friends, celebrating his 54th birthday Tuesday night at Capitol Hill hotspot Rose’s Luxury? The First Family skipped the usual wait — long lines are as much a signature of the restaurant that Bon Appetit named 2014’s hottest new eatery as its pork-and-lychee salad — for a […]

‘Orange is the New Black’ author visits Hill to call for prison reform

The author of “Orange is the New Black,” the memoir that inspired the hit Netflix series of the same name, had a message for Capitol Hill: Reform should be the new black. During a Senate hearing on prison oversight Tuesday, Piper Kerman shared stories from her own 13-month federal sentence in Danbury, Conn., that sounded […]

Did NPR nix the ‘all staff’ button?

We’ve all been there. A co-worker has lost their lucky rabbit’s foot key chain “somewhere between the security desk and my cubicle” and wants the whole office on high alert. A seemingly innocent “all staff” e-mail goes out to every single employee in the building. And then the replies start rolling in. To. Everyone’s. Inbox. NPR was the latest […]

Michelle Obama, total hipster, dines at edgy Maketto on H Street

Hey, isn’t that… first lady Michelle Obama, hanging at hipster haunt Maketto on H Street, NE on Monday night? FLOTUS was celebrating a pal’s birthday with a group of friends, a tipster reports. Maketto, a retail market (sample wares: culty Japanese sneakers and obscure magazines) combined with a Taiwanese and Cambodian-influenced eatery, is a far cry from […]

Comedian Amy Schumer and Sen. Chuck Schumer join forces on gun control

Comedian slash actress Amy Schumer and her famous first cousin once removed (that would be Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York) joined forces Monday to call for more stringent gun control laws. “I was heartbroken when I heard about Columbine, and Sandy Hook, and Aurora, and so many other names and places that are now seared […]

Gwyneth Paltrow and mom Blythe Danner to visit Hill to talk food labeling

Forecast on Capitol Hill this week: cloudy, with a chance of Goop. Lifestyle expert/actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her mom, actress Blythe Danner, are slated to visit the Capitol on Wednesday to meet with lawmakers and talk about genetically modified organism (GMO) labeling. Paltrow is hoping senators will undergo a “conscious uncoupling” (that was her special method […]

Cause Celeb: ‘Biggest Loser’ trainer Bob Harper weighs in on D.C. gym proposal

Celeb: Bob Harper, the tough, tatted-ed up trainer who whips contestants into shape on NBC’s “The Biggest Loser.” On Friday, he wore a T-shirt that showed off Popeye-esque biceps and, endearingly, dark-rimmed glasses (see! he does have a physical flaw!). Cause: A proposal that the D.C. Council is considering that would require trainers to be […]

Embassy social secretaries welcome Deesha Dyer to the club

The cocktail party at ornate Meridian House on Thursday was hardly the stuff of Skull and Bones, but make no mistake about it — this was an initiation rite. With champagne. The social secretaries from embassies of countries from Kenya to Monaco had gathered to toast Deesha Dyer, the new White House social secretary, to their […]

Trump sues José Andrés for $10M for backing out of restaurant deal

éé Donald Trump made good on threats to sue celebrity chef José Andrés, after the Washington-based toque backed out of a deal to open the flagship restaurant in Trump’s D.C. luxury hotel, slapping him with a $10 million breach-of-contract lawsuit.
