Our photographer colleague Rebecca D’Angelo goes to a party every week and does her thing, for a regular feature in the Sunday Style section called The Scene. This week, it was the “Desire to Aspire” brunch, Saturday at the St. Gregory Hotel in D.C., honoring accomplished women in the fields of government, media and politics to mark the close of Women’s History Month.
