Czech Embassy Presents Evening of Star-Studded Glam

Washington photographer Patrick Ryan has captured the essence of the red carpet photographing premieres and special events throughout the DC area. He presented Red Carpet DC: The Capital and Cult of Celebrity, an exhibition of photographs showcasing such stars as Michael Douglas, Nicolas Cage, Jessica Biel, Al Pacino, Sharon Stone, among others, on Thursday, July 19 at 7 pm at the Embassy of the Czech Republic with local celebrity Arch Campbell on site to offer opening remarks.

On the red carpet, guests had a chance to meet America’s Miss DC 2012 – Sarah Hillware and Miss DC 2006 – Kate Michael, as the “paparazzi” tried to snap pictures of the decked out guests. To get guests in the Hollywood spirit, DJ Tom from Prague lit up the carpet with upbeat tunes. The event included a selection of savory hors d'oeuvres provided by Czech local restaurant Bistro Bohem, signature cocktails of Becherovka, and cold drafted Pilsner Urquell beer.    

During the event, guests also participated in a live auction to benefit the Mutual Inspirations Festival 2012-Miloš Forman, with an array of autographed items from local and international celebrities. The evening also included prizes for “Best Red Carpet Couple” and “Best Dressed.”
