Model Tyson Beckford stars in hot new movie and Howard University’s homecoming

Your average home-town homecoming parade just got a healthy dose of drool.

The university announced Beckford’s newest role Friday, the same day as the release of his new […]

Kris Humphries nurses injured hand at hotspot Barcelona

Hey, isn’t that … New Wizard and Kim Kardashian ex Kris Humphries, continuing his tour of Washington’s restaurants with a Wednesday night visit to 14th Street hotspot Barcelona? Humphries had a bandaged hand — he sliced it on the rim blocking a layup in a Monday night pre-season game — and two blond lady-pals in tow, our spy says. The rest of […]

The end of the penguin suit? Why Washington tuxes are gathering dust.

It’s time to put the tuxedo on Washington’s endangered-species list. We’re in the height of gala season, and regulars on the canapes-and-silent-auctions circuit are finding fewer reasons to fish that full-on formal gear from its spot in the back of the closet. Show More Summary

Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang bring their chic to Georgetown

Hey isn’t that … Fashion powerhouses Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang holding court at Georgetown’s Fiola Mare on Wednesday night?

This Post article from 1929 might explain Michelle Obama’s love of Spanx #TBT

Michelle Obama gave a shout-out to Spanx founder Sara Blakely — and her curve-smoothing shapewear — at the fashion-education workshop held Wednesday at the White House. “Spanx is a multibillion-dollar company … and we all wear them with pride, ” the first lady said. Her praise prompted us to do some digging in The Post’s archive for this week’s Throwback […]

Kris Humphries spotted having dinner with a ‘young blond’

Hey isn’t that … Washington Wizards forward Kris Humphries dining with a “young blond” on the patio of Dupont’s La Tomate Tuesday night? Although Humphries, who’s in town minus his new teammates because of a hand injury, arrived at the resto looking pretty low-key in a white T-shirt and grey hoodie, it sounded like a romantic evening. Our […]

Smithsonian awards to feature Stephen Hawking, Beau Willimon and Rosanne Cash

Time to clear some space on those mantels — Smithsonian magazine is preparing to dole out its annual A-listy  Ingenuity Awards. And while the list of winners isn’t announced until the Oct. 16 ceremony at the National Portrait Gallery, the presenters alone are pretty impressive. Presenters include “House of Cards” creator Beau Willimon;  George Pelecanos, novelist and […]

HBO’s ‘Veep’ is casting fresh faces

If proximity to (fake) power is your thing, you might want to check out the latest casting call for HBO’s comedy “Veep,” which parodies (some say nails) the absurdities of official Washington.

Being a member of Congress is the opposite of being a celebrity

Congressional elections are a mere 26 days away, and outside groups alone have spent $330 million so far to either get candidates into Congress or to keep them there. So it must be a pretty great gig, right? Anti-incumbent political ads sure make it out to be. A series of commercials have hit members for cushy “perks,” such […]

The ‘House of Cards’ crew spotted filming in D.C. yesterday

The last time we saw Kevin Spacey in D.C., the actor was on stage belting out Lionel Richie’s catchy but kooky hit “All Night Long.” Frank Underwood, the devious politician Spacey plays on Netflix’s “House of Cards,” made a few cameos at the Sept. 29 benefit concert at Sidney Harman Hall, but the night was mostly all Spacey.
