We were out and about and stumbled upon the red carpet event for Time Magazine’s Top 100 People. We, along with many others, were hoping to see Lady Gaga but unfortunately that didn’t happen, possibly because she’s due to perform live on tonight’s American Idol results show. But we did see lots of people we know and many we didn’t. We knew it would be unlikely for our president to show up or our former president, and we definitely didn’t see them.
The most notable that I captured in photos (many of them are blurry) from the second floor of the Time Warner Center are Elton John, Suze Orman, Taylor Swift, Neil Patrick Harris,Oprah’s Gail, Chris Matthews, Rachel Ray, Martha Stewart, Donatella Versace, Betty White, Andy Samberg, and Seth Meyers. Oh, and I mustn’t forget Sarah Palin, who arrived with husband and family in tow and to very little fanfare but respectfully no boos. There’s also a photo of one of the event staff holding a binder with Glenn Beck‘s name on it. If my ability to spit were better, I may have been able to reach that binder but I wouldn’t want to contaminate my saliva, even from afar. I may have captured the president of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, but I’m not 100% sure.
Obviously, there were many people at the event to pay homage rather than accept an honor and some considered “alumni”. Here’s the full list. Interestingly, here’s how they are ranked by their Influence Index, tabulated form social media activity.
The photos are on my flickr page. Many are quite blurry as I was taking them from far away and the zoom works but focus is lost, especially if you don’t hold the camera perfectly still. If you can identify anyone else that I haven’t here, please do so in the comment section for the particular photo on flickr.
