Kennedy Center Honors Brunch

December 04 • The Mandarin Oriental

The Party: What the post-Oscar parties are to Hollywood, the Honors Brunch is to Washington. The star-studded event was hosted by Kennedy Center Honors co-creator George Stevens, Jr. and his wife Liz.

The Scene: Café MoZU, with its spectacular views of the Potomac Tidal Basin, was the perfect setting for the dim sum-inspired buffet. The atmosphere was like a page out of central casting, except no one was trying out for a part.

The People: Alec Baldwin hung out with Michelle Lee; Frenchloving bon vivant Art Buchwald joked with Robert Redford and Ben Bradlee; Florence Henderson, Tony Bennett, British actor Michael York, Alan Greenspan, Andrea Mitchell, Kitty Carlisle Hart and Dina Merrill—daughter of Marjorie Merriweather Post—chatted over mimosas. Clintonites Vernon Jordan and Terry McAuliffe gave their Hollywood counterparts a run for their money, while Rep. Ed Markey and Ron Silver debated over a West Wing plot line, proving that Jack Valenti was right to once quip: “Celebrities and politicians spring from the same DNA.”
