The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner has really become the hot ticket in town. We already know that Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan got invites, for which they were probably very thankful. Now if only they had dressed with gratitude. We’re definitely not saying that no effort went into putting their looks together. It was just all directed the wrong way for both of them. Lindsay’s black satin halter-necked gown and Kim’s heavy green satin version ended up looking tacky. Sorry, ladies, better luck next time. This was Kim’s second time at the event so she should’ve known what to expect. There were plenty of sartorial winners, though. Charlize Theron, as always, nailed it in an Emilio Pucci lace overlay column with Manolo Blahnik heels and a Judith Leiber clutch. Reese Witherspoon was glam in a black Monique Lhuillier gown and stunning turquoise and emerald drop earrings by Irene Neuwirth. Sofia Vergara and Anna Paquin wore black too, with Vergara picking a black textured brocade David Meister cocktail frock, and Paquin, a Hervé L. Leroux gown.
The list of celebrities is a bit of a roll call, but we’ll try to do justice. There was a fair amount of white that popped up. Claire Danes wore the color through an edgy Vivienne Westwood gown, Malin Akerman wore a slightly peachier version of the shade in a vintage Odicini Couture dress. Eva Longoria wore a shorter, Marchesa cocktail variety, while Ginnifer Goodwin wore a snowy H&M frou-frou long, layered number. The supermodels also picked that color with Irina Shayk looking terrific in a slinky wide-legged jumpsuit and Kate Upton who sadly, ended up looking frumpy in a frilled, lacklustre dress. Dakota Fanning and Zooey Deschanel wore textured pastels; the former with Prada and the latter with Oscar de la Renta. Going in the opposite direction with splashes of color were Elizabeth Banks in vermilion Antonio Berardi peplum gown, Rosario Dawson in an emerald Armani Prive very low-cut dress and Viola Davis in a deep orange Amsale sweeping number. We also loved Kate Hudson‘s sequined purple Jenny Packham gown.
Perhaps the only person who went really crazy with a print was Leslie Mann who picked a wildly floral one-shouldered, Naeem Khan gown. Another woman — who is kind of beyond celebrity — wore the same designer and totally showed up Mann, though. Michelle Obama picked a strapless jazzed-up printed Khan dress and rocked the hell out of everybody. See for yourself in our gallery below.

TMZ reports that Fox News Channel has invited Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan to the White House Correspondents Dinner in D.C. this weekend, though we’re not exactly sure why. These two have nothing to do with the White House, they aren’t correspondents and everyone eats dinner so that one doesn’t even count! Of course, Kim and Lilo are only two of a host of random celeb guests expected to attend Saturday’s event, including George Clooney, Viola Davis, Josh Hutcherson and Charlize Theron. Now obviously, these are famous people we can understand inviting. If we were President, Charlize would be at every dinner we attended! By a decree of martial law!
Maybe all bets are off after the Commander-in-Chief slow jammed the news on Fallon this week, but we can’t be the only ones who feel uncomfortable with the idea of Kim and Lindsay being in the same room with the Leader of the Free World, can we? It just doesn’t feel right. According to TMZ’s source however, the ladies will most likely not meet President Obama. “No way. The President almost never mingles with the guests,” they claim. Aw, well since they’re going to be there anyway…maybe it wouldn’t hurt to go say hi? Just don’t leave the nuclear launch codes lying around. Or let Malia and Sasha out of their rooms.

There’s a reason why Donald Trump looks so glum in this picture, while John Legend and girlfriend Chrissy Teigen look like they’re having a ball. Celebrities flocked to Washington D.C on Saturday for the White House Correspondent’s Association dinner and as usual the glam factor was pretty high. But the best part of the evening was that Trump was trumped by President Barack Obama and later, by Seth Meyers, who made some pointed jokes at The Donald’s expense in response to the “birther” debate.
Obama cracked some big ones like, “I know he’s taken some flack lately, but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate issue to rest than Donald, and that’s because he can get back to the issues that matter, like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?” Meyers rubbed it in even further with jibes like, “Donald Trump often appears on Fox, which is ironic, because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head.” Ouch. Donald’s massive ego must’ve taken an even more massive beating!
Now you see why Trump looks dyspeptic, right? But even he can’t deny that the dinner was an amazing success. The ladies looked gorgeous in full-length gowns (except Michelle Trachtenberg who needs to take it easy on the goth lipstick). Mila Kunis, Anna Paquin, America Ferrera, Rosario Dawson and a very pregnant Alyssa Milano hit it out of the ball park. Paula Abdul looked pretty fantastic too—surprise surprise. The men repp’d it with the likes of Ian Somerhalder, Chris Colfer and Chace Crawford looking sharp in their suits. This also happens to be the night Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn made their hand-holding public. Page Six reports that Scarlett and Sean were all over each other at dinner with a source revealing, “She plopped down in his lap, and they were kissing.” We may not have pictures of their make-out sesh, but we do have plenty of the rest of the stars in all their finery. Check them out in our gallery below.

Celebrities such as Amy Poehler, Eva Longoria, Ed Westwick, Kerry Washington, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher swarmed Capitol Hill this weekend to rub elbows with politic big shots at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Funny lady Poehler looked simply stunning in black and white, and Demi and her hubby danced while decked out in Neil Lane diamonds (yep, they make diamond cuff links!). John McCain‘s daughter Meghan allegedly tried to throw her weight around, dropping the old, “Does he even know who the f*ck I am?” after security busted her for showing up with three friends and just two tickets.
We’re not sure what any of these stars have to do with politics, but we’re psyched to see the government get glammed up – Michelle Obama can’t do it all on her own! [Photos: GettyImages]
