“I’m a ball and gala girl. It’s my legacy and my calling.”
Katie Rost is an international model and TV personality born and raised in Potomac, in a very affluent and philanthropic biracial family. She grew up in the elite social scene of Maryland. Katie went to the best private schools and was groomed to be a top doctor or lawyer. But despite her parents’ hopes, she followed her dreams all the way to New York City to become a successful model. A vivacious beauty with girl-next-door charm, Katie has big dreams and electric ambition. In 2009, Katie was asked by Vogue Magazineeditor Anna Wintour to join The Vogue 100 List, a group of intriguing and fashionable women from around the country who act as arbiters of style. Katie and her mother run the Ronald F. Rost Charitable Foundation in memory of Katie’s father, who died in 2000.
Katie went on to marry her college sweetheart, but the marriage was short-lived and fell apart. She decided to move her three-year-old son, James Rocco, and 14-month-old twin daughters, Kathryn and Renee, back to Potomac to settle down and raise them “properly.” A single mother of three, Katie was introduced to one of Potomac’s most eligible bachelors, Andrew, an investment executive. Although he had no plans of settling down, Andrew and Katie hit it off instantly and have been dating for over a year. Katie loves Andrew and is ready to give marriage another shot.
