Red Carpet Rundown: The 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner


2013 white house correspondents association dinner

This weekend saw the annual the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, DC. The big news? Michelle Obama wore an uncharacteristically sexy Monique Lhuillier dress (unfortunately, no one seemed to get a decent photo of it).

However, they did get decent photos of attendees who walked the red carpet and, although we’re a day late, here’s what they wore…

Mad Men actress Jessica Pare wore our favorite color combination–black and blue–but the architecture on this is so weird, especially at the should

We care not for embellished necklines, Olivia Munn‘s and otherwise.

We like how Sharon Stone has left acting to become a fulltime witch.

And no, seriously, we really like it.

Julie Bowen‘s dress is wearing the shit out of her.

While Hayden Panettiere‘s dress just plain swallowed her.

Sophia Bush‘s look felt a little too fairy princess for our tastes.

Katy Perry, Kerry Washington, Rebel Wilson and more ahead.

    Finally! All i kept thinking yesterday was “but what does Ashley think of all this?!”

      You are too kind!

      Unlike me. Just hating on sparkly dresses and all.

    • Cee

      I liked sparkly dresses every now and then. My wedding gown may be sparkly if I don’t end up selling it soon. That is why you are not invited! I find that I like subtle sparkly now that Express and the world is not shoving sparkles down my eyeballs.

    They couldn’t take the tag out of Katy Perry’s dress?

    Fur chubby will always make me laugh, but especially when written anywhere near Anna Wintour.

    I want to be Robin Wright when I grow up.

    Well, actually, I always wanted to be Buttercup when I grew up (because I had the biggest crush on Westley), but she will do.

      Doesn’t she look incredible?

  • Lucy

    Hayden looks like Party City’s version of sexy Belle.

  • Alexis H

    Is anyone else getting a slutty Belle from Beauty and the Beast vibe from Hayden Panettiere? My mind cannot move past it.

    Pretty decent showing overall, though. While I wasn’t blown away by a lot of this, at least they all seemed to take it seriously and didn’t dress like the VMAs. Most of a thumbs up, celebrities!

      You and Lucy nailed it.

    • Alexis H

      Oh snap, you’re right, it looks like I’m not the only commenter who thinks that! In that case, how did no one in her styling camp notice?

    The only thing that excites me about Amy’s look is that it looks like she is wearing a wedding ring & I got so excited for her & Will getting back together (Just in time for an Arrested Development cameo!), but it looks like she has one on both ring fingers. sigh.
    also, does anyone else HATE that color on Elizabeth Banks?
