Elle, Gucci Honor 10 Washington Luminaries

ELLE and Gucci celebrated 10Washington “luminaries” at a private dinner Wednesday night at the home Italian Ambassador, Claudio Bisogniero.

ELLE Editor-in -Chief Robbie Myers and Gucci America president Christophe de Pous played hosts. Myers’ makeup was done by Karma’s Erwin Gomez, as we noted earlier in the week.

The event celebrated 10 bigwigs named to the third annual ELLE Power List, which appears in the April issue. This year’s honorees include: Dr. Jill Biden; Mignon Clyburn, FCC Commissioner; Michelle Freeman, real estate and sports mogul; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand; Maria Teresa Kumar, president and CEO, Voto Latino; Alyssa Mastromonaco, White House deputy chief of staff; Susan McCue, political strategist; Andrea Mitchell, NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent; Susan Molinari, vice president of public policy and government relations, Google; and CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin.

Here’s a nice perk. Gucci dressed several attendees, including Myers, and honorees Kumar, McCue, Molinari, Freeman and Clyburn, as well as lobbyist Heather Podesta and Kathleen Biden, daughter-in-law to Dr. Jill Biden.
