Blurred Reality

066_wl0916-b

Cirque performers, acrobats, and contortionists decorate the pages of Blurred Reality, but the most curious of characters, model Magi Tareke, steals the show right off the paper.

Outfitted by stylist Stara Pezeshkian in designers from Yves Saint Laurent to Alexander McQueen to Carolina Herrera to Escada, Magi, of course, has glamorous gems, jewels, and precious metals to match from Chanel to Roberto Coin to Brian Atwood and to Liljenquist & Beckstead.

This spread recreates scenes and emotions from fairy tales we grew up with all the while incorporating a darker sense of magical mystery and style similar to steampunk.

Model Magi Tareke brings you into the work of KURIOS and lets your imagination loose into the quixotic world of Cirque du Soleil.

Sondra Hoffman – A DC Mover & Shaker!

Our shining star for over seven years, Sondra Hoffman, T•H•E’s head booker, is featured on this year’s Young & the Guest List Rising Stars 40 & Under.

THE list proves that politics isn’t the only game in town, and the Fashion Industry carries it’s own power.

From members of Congress and White House staffers to athletes, reporters, doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs and public relations powerhouses, it’s never hard to find people to add to our yearly compilation of the region’s movers and shakers age 40 and under. That’s due to the simple fact that there are so many younger people doing great things here.

We photographed close to 50 individuals for our 11th annual Young & the Guest List, which highlights more than 300 stars in their fields.

This is an election year, so many are involved in the political world. You’ll find portraits of and interviews with journalists who cover Capitol Hill and the White House, as well as political players on both sides of the aisle. Democratic Reps. Eric Swalwell and Ruben Gallego posed for us, as did their Republican colleagues, Reps. Will Hurd and Carlos Curbelo. New House Speaker Paul Ryan’s press secretary, AshLee Strong, also joined the throng along with the Republican National Committee’s Chief of Staff Katie Walsh and several officials now serving in the final year of the Obama administration.

Our list also proves that politics isn’t the only game in town. We’ve included chefs and restaurateurs – two of whom appeared on the latest season of Bravo’s “Top Chef.”  We showcase artists and photographers, doctors and philanthropists (like Bobby Gill, found of Cupid’s Undie Run and resent Runner’s World cover star) and top athletes from the Washington Capitals, D.C. United and Washington Mystics.

 It’s a well-rounded, accomplished, inspiring and, dare we say, FUN group that defines youth, power and success in our great city.
