THE EVENT: Luxe was the by word at this year's much-anticipated Washington Life's Y&GL fête; young Washingtonians glowed against the softly illuminated (in royal purple by Frost Lighting) tapestries and French double doors of the majestic Meridian House. Nibbling on delectable sushi morsels and mini cheese burgers, more than 400 local power-partiers mingled in a lounge conceived by Design Cuisine's Bill Homan with floral designs by Ultra Violet. "The Meridian House has never looked so good," remarked one guest. The fondue bar, infectiously grooving funk band, the Midnight Movers, and DJ Seyhan Duru made for irresistible revelry, and the open bar and Silver Patron shots only augmented the effect. The party continued until the wee, wee, and we do mean wee hours at Napoleon, where guests went home with donuts from Fractured Prune.
