Rooftop Royale

| July 2, 2013 | Parties

THE PARTY The much-anticipated soiree was as much about breaking out spring and summer fashion as it was the thrill of seeing a newly minted space ripe for warm-weather mingling. Since the chic Observatory will play host to a range of exciting summer events, guests were able to see the space in all of its glory—and partiers responded by painting this portion of DC red until the early morning hours. THE PEOPLE More than 250 of DC’s trendsetters, media personalities, business owners and philanthropists toasted the swoonworthy space with Champagne. Guests included AOL founder Jim Kimsey and Bravo’s The Real Housewives
alums Lynda Erkiletian and Jeana Keough. BEST IN SHOW Guests tasted a range of signature cocktails from the Observatory’s creative mixologists—all complemented beautifully by cupcakes courtesy of Baked by Melissa. Photography by Marcus Bennet
