TIME and People’s Prom Party

Time and People magazines have teamed up again this year to host their annual White House Correspondents cocktail party on Friday, April 29th 2011 – the eve of the WHCD.  Widely considered one of the week’s most sought-after invitations, the exclusive event pulls a slew of celebrity attendees who casually mingle with Washington political and media types in the courtyard of the St. Regis Hotel. Guests at last year’s party were treated to Le SportSac gift bags bursting with goodies like beauty products, clothing, food, jewelry, and all sorts of gadgets we never knew we needed so badly until then.  Over the last few years, the shindig has hosted Kevin Bacon, Glee’s Matthew Morrison, Patricia Arquette, Tony Romo, Oprah’s BFF Gail King, Gabby Sidebe aka “Precious,” and Meghan McCain.

Enchanted, Surprised, Troubled and Humbled at Time & People

Larry Hackett and Sandra Sobieraj Westfall of People Magazine and Time Magazine’s Richard Stengel and Michael Duffy kicked off the WHCA Dinner weekend with a star-studded cocktail at the Hotel St. Regis. Taking a cue from our pal Jeff Zeleny, we’ve decided to summarize the fete in a four-part format.

We were enchanted by Meghan McCain. The Senator’s daughter was warm, friendly and looking fierce…

Surprised to see Jeff Zeleny (our inspiration). We caught up with the NYT WH correspondent for a few laughs and a drink…

Troubled by Kevin Bacon‘s behavior. When the skinny star wasn’t rejecting requests for his picture, he was leaning against the bar in his best ‘too cool for school’ manner…

Humbled by Mark Whitaker and Alexis Gelber. The dynamic duo never ceases to amaze us with their charm, smarts and approachable demeanor…

We also ran into Greta Van Susteren, Chris Matthews, Norah O’Donnell, Savannah Guthrie, Patrick Gavin, Wolf Blitzer, Michael Calderone, Mike Allen, Arianna Huffington and Amy Argetsinger.

Thanks to Politico’s Patrick Gavin who snagged a few minutes with Meghan McCain:

Hot Ticket: Cap File Post-WHCD Party

Slashed guest lists, merged parties and budget cuts across-the-board have made WHCD party invites much harder to come by this year. With only two hundred spots up for grabs at Bloomberg’s joint party with Vanity Fair, an invite to Cap File’s fete at the Corcoran Gallery has become a newly coveted prize.

TWT’s Green & Glover report that Wanda Sykes, Anne Hathaway, Sting, Kevin Bacon, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Ellen Burstyn, Dana Delany, Kara DioGuardi, Barry Levinson, Eva Longoria Parker, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Matthew Modine, Bill O’Reilly, Narciso Rodriguez, Christian Slater, Jon Voight, Kate Walsh, Kerry Washington and Forest and Keisha Whitaker will all be present at Saturday night’s Capitol File soiree.

Check out TWT for more on this and Cap File’s new issue.

More Prom Dates…

Glamour magazine fittingly nabbed White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers, who is also a special guest at the Capitol File after party (with Valerie Jarrett and dinner entertainment headliner Wanda Sykes).

Also at Glamour’s table: Narciso Rodriguez, Alicia Keys, Kenneth Cole, Kerry Washington and the Vice President’s daughter, Ashley Biden.

People Magazine is bringing Sting and Trudie Styler, Miranda Cosgrove, Brooke Shields and Chris Henchy, Eva Longoria Parker, Kevin Bacon, Ludacris, Jon Hamm and Forest Whitaker.

Fortune will host George Lucas and Glenn Close (far better than last year’s Heidi and Spencer).

The Atlantic has invited Newt Gingrich and “Gossip Girl” star Ed Westwick.

WWD also reports The Atlantic will host a Friday night dinner and a pre-dinner cocktail reception at the Hilton, co-hosted by the National Journal Group and ABC.
