KERRY WASHINGTON AND PHILADELPHIA STYLE MAGAZINE'S AFTERPARTY

Friday night after Kerry Washington's screening of her new movie " Night Catches Us ", Philadelphia Style Magazine held an after party at the Chestnut Street Club.

Many of stylish Philadelphian's came out to enjoy the bites of 12th Street Caterers and mingle with the beautiful people that make up these parties. Anne Nikolaus on the right and her girlfriends

I wish I had gotten a better shot of Haley Binn's stockings. This season stockings have become more than just leg warmers, and seem to come in all kinds of interesting styles.

Love this little dance Kerry does toward Jason Binns. Wish I had videoed it.

Phila Film Festival's Andrew Greenblatt and Kerry Washington. This "newly revised festival" was epic for Philadelphia. They brought in a lot of amazing movies, great talent, and they had a "red carpet" with a step and repeat when possible. They really went the extra mile to get me there, the brass from the top down greeted me, and made my work that much easier to do. For me my schedule was too banged up tight to make everything, but from what I could see this festival is going to make Philly a contender in the Festival circuit. Something I've always wanted to see.

Michelle Miller, GN Kang and Mia Colona. Like I said stockings are no longer functional, but stylish too.

Anthony DiMeo III and his baby. baby's got back and front.

Congrats to Ashley Schaeffer on her recent engagement
hot shoe style


A member of the audience is daft and stuck on the idea that the movie should have been filmed in North Philly where the story "probably happened", but this is not a documentary states Kerry Washington so it's fine that it's filmed in Germantown where the director placed it.

Tip sheet so that I can recognize the peeps walking the red carpet.
Jamara Griffon was awesome in the movie, and I told her so.
