Washington Life Magazine hosted its fifth annual The Young and The Guest List (YGL) event April 15th. The theme this year was "A Return to Glamour." Between the historic venue of The Washington Club, the magical stylings of Events by Andre Wells, Design Cuisine and Janet Flowers, and 400 of the metro area's top 40-and-under movers and shakers, the night truly was glamorous.

The YGL is a list of 250 of the most influential Washingtonians under 40. Collectively known as The Young and The Guest List, these movers and shakers were chosen by committee from across professions, including politics, media, diplomacy, law, finance, real estate, sports, entertainment, the arts, technology, and philanthropy. The theme of this year's event was "Return to Glamour."

"We felt it was important to acknowledge the city's rich history by hosting the event at a landmark venue once known salons that blended power, grace and society," Washington Life Executive Editor Michael M. Clements said. "We are grateful and excited that we found such a place in the Washington Club, the former Patterson Mansion on Dupont Circle. We also love the fact that the mansion was built by a newspaper editor and was for many years the epicenter of power and society in the nation's capital." Full coverage of the event here!
