| July 9, 2012 | Parties

THE PARTY Over 30 retailers and restaurants took part in the weekend trunk shows, food tastings and, of course, fashion show at the fourth annual, three-day, label-laden, celeb-loaded Front Row at Federal Realty Investment Trust’s Bethesda Row. THE PEOPLE Watch What Happens: Live host Andy Cohen promoted his new book, while The Situation Room host and Bethesda-local Wolf Blitzer stayed for the fashion show, featuring boutiques like Ginger, Amethyst, Urban Country and Wear it Well. Real Housewives stars Mary Amons, Cat Ommanney, Lynda Erikiletian and Stacie Turner came to the event to see Cohen for the first time since the show ended. All mwah-mwahed and thanked Cohen for speaking so highly of them in recent press. BEST IN SHOW Posh flower service H. Bloom created a beguiling Bud Bar where guests could create floral accessories—everything from fascinators to necklaces. Other fun “bars” included the Aveda Lipstick Bar, fully stocked with spring’s freshest shades. Photography by Daniel Schwartz
