Summer Superlatives 2013: Best Bangs

Today we begin our 2013 Summer Superlatives contest with a late entry to the race: Best Bangs. If you hadn’t noticed, we like hair items and bangs are not always a good look. Whoever can pull them off is a rare individual worthy of many compliments. But who deserves the praise?

Our nominees include Red Alert‘s Nikki SchwabBreitbart News and Townhall’s Lisa de Pasquale, HuffPost‘s Washington Bureau Chief Ryan Grim and NBC’s Luke Russert. We’re throwing in Michelle Obama just for the hell of it. She does appear to be responsible for this year’s bang craze.

Wrote one tipster, “Nikki Schwab’s are awesome. Her ‘do is simply perfect for her face frame and she pulls them off beautifully! Not everyone can like she does. Obligatory corresponding photo attached.”

Let the voting begin.

WHCD: Cap File Rises to the Occasion

Tight budgets and tiny guest lists at other post-dinner events offered Capitol File/Niche Media an interesting opportunity to make their mark as hosts for the 2009 WHCD weekend must-attend fete.

Luckily for Cap File, the Saturday night soiree lived up to the hype. Journalists, politicos, Hollywood royalty and actual royalty packed the invite-only (crashers of yesteryear were out of luck) party at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

FishbowlDC hung with media power couple Mark Whitaker and Alexis Gelber, Yeas & Nays Kiki Ryan and almost off-the-market Jeff Dufour (engaged to Jayne Sandman), WaPo’s Jonathan Capehart, HuffPo’s Ryan Grimm, Newsweek’s Mike Isikoff, WaPo’s Mary Ann Akers, Mike Mills and Jackie Kucinich from Roll Call, CNN’s Leslie Sanchez and Suzanne Malveaux, TWT silver fox Joe Curl, Mix 107.3′s Tommy McFly, NJ’s Erin McPike, GMA’s Polson Kanneth and Project Beltway’s Rachel Cothran.

We also caught up with FNC’s Greta Van Susteren (who charmed my mom/date at Tammy Haddad‘s brunch earlier in the day) and spotted PBS’ Gwen Ifill, BET’s Debra Lee, MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer, Daily Beast’s Rachel Sklar, CNBC’s Jim Kramer and AP/WHCA’s Jennifer Loven.

We reunited with old pal Rachael Leigh Cook (whose youthful beauty seems to defy time) and got to know our Friday night crush; Meghan McCain a little better. Christian Slater, Wanda Sykes, Amber Tamblyn, Chris Tucker, Eva Longoria Parker, John McLaughlin, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Mariska Hargitay, Tim Daly, Kara DioGuardi, Keisha & Forest Whitaker, Owen Wilson, Jason Wu, David Cross, Connie Britton, Padma Lakshmi, Dule Hill, Kai Milla, Matthew Settle all made the fete.

The political scene included Todd Palin and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa while Rahm Emanuel, Valerie Jarrett and Desiree Rogers represented the White House.

Even HRH Prince Abdulaziz bin Talal bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud was on hand to toast the evening’s event.
