Pelosi was seen taking in the view atop the W Hotel in downtown Washington. The California lawmaker told ITK she brought her teenage granddaughter to the WHCA-related festivities that night. Saying of the 15-year-old, "She's excited about seeing the [celebrities.]"

Cast members from HBO's "Veep" chatted up partygoers. One reveler was overheard telling actor Gary Cole, who plays a pollster on the show, "Guys, if they're shady enough, will go work for the Soviet Republic," while Cole listened politely.

Fellow "Veep" actor Matt Walsh donned a bold fashion choice at the soiree, wearing a striped tie paired with a checkered shirt. He admitted with a laugh that a stylist dressed him for the evening. "It just works!" He said with a chuckle as he marveled at his outfit.
