    To say we admire Svetlana Legetic is an understatement — the stylish, creative, and super-savvy cofounder of Brightest Young Things could easily claim the title of "coolest woman in Washington." After launching the site as a bare-bones nightlife blog in 2006, Legetic, a native of Serbia and graduate of SCAD, has since turned it into a digital empire, ruling the D.C. party scene by simultaneously covering what's happening and staging wildly popular parties under the BYT banner.
