The Washingtonian honored the 100 Most Powerful Women featured in the October issue at a luncheon at the elegant St. Regis hotel. The honorees were encouraged to bring as a guest a woman with talent and tenacity whom Washingtonian should watch in the future.
PricewaterhouseCoopers was the presenting sponsor of the luncheon, and managing partner Chris Simmons served as the keynote speaker. Washingtonian partnered with Vital Voices, an international organization dedicated to identifying, investing in, and bringing visibility to women around the world. Guests had the opportunity to appear on a mock Washingtonian cover, thanks to Event Digital Photography. Lexus, the automotive sponsor, provided a sleek RX 450h, which was parked out front for attendees to admire. Floral arrangements by MultiFlor decorated the venue, which was equipped with tables and linens from Select Event Rentals. Music inside and out was provided by Elan Artists, while Event EQ coordinated the audio and visual elements of the afternoon's presentations.
