Fabulous Washington Hostesses:
Evalyn Walsh McLean

Random trait: Used to put the Hope Diamond on the collar of her Great Dane to shock her dinner guests.

Buy: Alligator-embossed crystal bone dog collar ($82, The Posh Pooch).

Read: Father Struck It Rich by Evalyn Walsh McLean

Do: Get rid of all bad luck charms, even if valuable; stroll by the Indonesian Embassy, the original Walsh-McLean home.

I love the anecdote about the Hope diamond on her dog's collar. There's a great place in Seattle for pups called "High Maintenance Bitch". You'd love it.
