As a warm up for tonight’s Oscars of fashion–otherwise known as the Met Gala–a slew of fashion’s luminaries trekked down to Washington D.C. for the 102nd Annual White House Correspondents Dinner. Attendees laughed while President Barack Obama made fun of Kendall Jenner and actually dropped the mic, but they also served up some seriously chic gowns on the red carpet.
Decked out in tasteful designer duds (this is no place for a “naked” dress), fashion starlets got creative for the evening. Emily Ratajkowski showed a sliver of skin in a romantic lace Monique Lhuillier frock, Emma Watson opted for a Osman tunic and pant combo, while Lauren Santo Domingo deflected to a sheer and embellished number by one of her favorite brands, Delpozo.
Michelle Dockery deserves a shout out for wearing such a bright color for such a buttoned up event. Her Cushnie et Ochs frock was a definite standout.
