Last night at Poste, The Hill celebrated its annual “50 Most Beautiful“ list, a nod to this town’s most beautiful – or not – members of Congress, Congressional staffers, campaign aides, lobbyists, and other Capitol Hill/executive branch employees.
Many of the 50 selected were in attendance, although the five Representatives and two Senators who made the list were not. Either was White House press secretary Josh Earnest. Or FOX News’ Bret Baier or CNN’s S.E. Cupp. But CBS News’ Nancy Cordes and NBC News’ Kristen Welker were there.
Guests who entered through Poste’s entrance (and not Hotel Monaco) first stumbled upon a step and repeat for anyone but mostly those who made the list. The gathering took place on Poste’s outdoor patio amid perfect weather and included remarks from the recently announced new Hill editor in chief Bob Cusack.
