Dear Countess de Lesseps,
I have been invited to a reception and dinner at an Embassy in Washington DC. I have never attended an event such as this. What are the key things you would recommend for me?
Thank you,
Pema

Hi Pema,
You should call the Embassy your going to as they all have certain protocols and all have protocol officers. This way you will be dressed appropriately depending on time of day. Always be simple and elegant by staying with classic looks. Don't forget to address the Ambassador as such. Have fun!
The Countess
