Ashton. Demi. Samuel L. Aretha.

The lobby of the Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown was a parade of stargazing Tuesday afternoon after President Obama's inauguration. As regular hotel guests flooded in from the Mall, the stars convened just inside the lobby, largely unnoticed by those around them aside from hotel security.

Maria Shriver, wife of California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R), was chatting with actor Ashton Kutcher about the "passion" of the day. Kutcher was bundled in a dark hat, dark wool coat, striped pants and blue sneakers. Kutcher's wife, Demi Moore, was standing nearby.

Next to pass through the lobby were Aretha Franklin, who performed during the swearing-in ceremony, along with with Samuel L. Jackson and his wife, Latanya Richardson.
