The White House Correspondents’ Dinner — where journalists, celebrities and politicians all come together. (I should have just gone into DC just to try and catch a glimpse of some of the attendees!) I wasn’t really impressed with the fashions from last night. There were a lot of so-so gowns and several that I felt were just totally wrong (cough cough
Ashley Judd). With so many models in attendance ( Chanel Iman, Adriana Lima, Irina Shayk) I really expected more.
However, I always manage to find quite a few favorites, including Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Pretty Little Liar Troian Bellisario and pregnant Anne V!
Take a look below for more of my best dressed!
Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Reem Acra. Jenna is always flawless and this dress was beautiful. I liked how the top folded over to show that extra bit of pizzazz! I just wish she had that extra bit of arm candy (i.e. Channing Tatum).
Chrissy Teigen in Zuhair Murad. Chrissy looking like a total babe as per usual. I loved the dark lip and her lightened locks. I think they complemented the gown well. She wears a lot of Zuhair Murad, but she looks great in his designs so as they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
Anne Vyalitsyna in Altuzarra. Such a gorgeous mommy-to-be. You can’t even tell in this picture! Ahh to have those model genes. I loved the print on this gown and the halter neckline. Her skin was just glowing. I also have to give her props because early on in the night her dress ripped and she played it off like a champ by ripping the other side to match — check it out!
Gina Rodriguez in Gustavo Cadile. My beloved Gina. I loved this color on her. This dusty rose is one of my absolute favorite hues! And this dress hugged her in all the right places. She looks so genuinely happy all the time and that makes her even more beautiful in my eyes!!
Troian Bellisario in Unknown. I love Troian and I don’t see her out and about as much so I really loved seeing her at the Correspondents’ Dinner. The gown was beautiful and I liked the kind of Grecian vibe. Her hair was on point too. If only she would have smiled a bit in the photos.
Sophia Bush in Monique Lhuillier. I was loving this color on her last night! The draping was beautiful and she had the perfect accessories. I also liked that she put her hair up so it didn’t take away from the neckline of the dress.
Laverne Cox in Ines Di Santo. I don’t think Laverne has ever looked better. The lightened lob (long bob) is totally working for her. The silver hue worked well against her skin and the dress fit like a glove! A++
Julie Bowen in Jenny Packham. I really liked that Julie went for a shorter hemline. I thought it was still appropriate for the event. I liked the embellishments on the gown, but I do think she could have used a few more accessories.
