W is for Wow! What a Night…

The uber-fab fete for last night’s opening of the W Hotel ranks as one of the most exciting events this year. The old Hotel Washington wore subtle pinstripes and bold lace.

“Everyone thinks of Washington power as pinstripes, but the truth is — the real power is in a lacy negligee,” said Jayne Sandman while explaining the hotel’s decor to Joe Curl and Ed Henry.

Washington media stars were glammed out and grooving to a private concert by John Legend while toasting the super-chic digs with celebs like Emmy Rossum, Johnny Wright and Tatyana Ali.

Also spotted were Wash Life‘s Michael Clements, Politico‘s Kiki Ryan, Pamela Sorensen, Urban Daddy’s Jeff Dufour, Bloomberg’s Tim Burger, CNN’s Jessica Yellin, MTP’s Betsy Fischer, Jack Quinn, Susanna Quinn,Tammy Haddad, FNC’s Bret Baier, Amy Baier, WaPo Reliable Source’s Amy Argetsinger, Jessica Gibson, TWT‘s Joe Curl, CNN’s Ed Henry, Politics Daily’s Emily Miller, Cap File‘s Sarah Schaffer, Mix 107.3′s Tommy McFly, CBS’ Scott McCrary, Fox 5′s Paul Raphel, Politico‘s Mike Allen, Fox 5′s Steve Chenevy and new “Yeas and Nays” columnist Tara Palmeri hanging with Mark Ein.
