Onceagain, Kuwaiti Ambassador Salem
Al-Sabah and his wife Rima put together the type of
A-List event that makes for a memorable evening.
The occasion for the over-the-top dinner was to
welcome to Washington the new Saudi Ambassador
Prince Turki Al-Faisal and his wife, Princess Nouf
The embassy was fi lled
with the finest flowers (including gardenias fl oating
in the fountain) and major out-of-town guests,
including Barbara Walters, Leonard and Evelyn
Lauder, Ron Silver and Georgette Mosbacher.
The Prince talked about rubbing elbows with former
president Bill Clinton while both were students at
Georgetown University, class of 1968. All this before
a traditional sword dance kept the guests…um, on
the edge of their seats.
