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.

Katy Perry is stunning in green–but we can’t help but feel her weirdo belt really sinks things here. It feels so… Lord of the Rings.

Amy Poehler‘s dress is weird but Amy Poehler can do what she wants (A fashion blog that isn’t objective? WELL I NEVER).

Excepting the shoes, Rebel Wilson really nailed it.

Robin Wright is too elegant for this world. She looks phenomenal.

We’re just never going to love sparkly neutral columns, but Chrissy Teigen‘s makeup artist sure did well.

Michelle Dockery‘s dress is just interesting enough and we dig her in purple but–as many a pale brunette knows–that orange-y pink lipstick might be a little overpowering.

Kate Mara went for angelic but the giant bow really ruins it for us.

Kerry Washington has set the bar so high for herself that this feels kind of rote and boring.

Anna Wintour wore a fur chubby, an apparently popular bridal trend for non-basic bitches next year.

Not crazy about the detailing on the side of Claire Danes’ dress but it sure fits her amazingly, doesn’t it?

Sofia Vergara did the only thing Sofia Vergara knows: super fitted, bust/waist-emphasizing and big flowing fantasy hair. But she always looks so good, so joke’s on us.

Irina Shayk was surprisingly demure for a swimsuit model. Oh, that’s right–she’s extremely classy.
