The recently completed backyard pool of Jack and Susanna Quinn provided the perfect backdrop for one of the more memorable parties of the summer. Mai Abdo, Gwen Holliday, Page Evans, Jocelyn Greenan, Kristin Solheim, Darcy Jones, Amy Baier, Kristin Mowry, Jamie Dorros, Amy Argetsinger, and Betsy Fischer, were just some of the many that beat the heat last night by sipping made to order mojitos, whipped up on the spot. I finally got to meet my friend John Cecchi‘s girlfriend, Kristin Rae Irish, Sassanova owner Sassy Jacobs, Alison Kenworthy, Sarah Canova, and Elizabeth Lowery. Although I was there to photograph what was billed as a ladies party, a dozen or so men showed up, too, including Nathaniel Fogg, Manny Ortiz, Brett Baier, Dave Tafuri, Josh Tuerk, John Coon, and Michelle Obama‘s Deputy Social Secretary Ebs Burnough. I also met celebrity stylist Johnny Wright (who moved here on Valentine’s Day to be on-call for Michelle Obama) there and we hit it off right away. He made my year by agreeing to do the hair for my upcoming fashion shoot at Dumbarton Oaks. Well-known makeup artist Carl Ray, also said yes last night to working with me. My dream team is in place!! Carl attended with his partner, Rick Raines, who coordinates the George Salon at The Four Seasons. Somehow a small group of us (Ebs, Johhny, Susanna, Jack, Gwen, Kristin, Elizabeth Thorp, and Emily Miller) ended up in the Quinn kitchen – where everything seems to happen – long after most of the guests had gone. We could have stayed there all night so much was going on. But today is a new day and tonight there are two more parties….
