Le tout Washington was on hand at Villa Firenze Wednesday night as Washington Life magazine bestowed its fifth annual Men and Women of Substance and Style Awards on seven “outstanding individuals who have worked to improve the quality of life” in the local area and beyond. This year’s honorees included (from the left) arts philanthropist Isabel de la Cruz Ernst; Smithsonian Latino Center Director Pilar O’Leary; children’s welfare activist Gabriela Smith; lobbyist and political strategist David Mercer; environmentalist Philippe Cousteau; and psychiatrist and mental illness expert Dr. E. Fuller Torrey. Sen. Barack Obama was unable to attend.
