White House Correspondents Dinner Celeb Style Off

By  April 29, 2013

Political culture met couture at the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner, where famous names flocked to the Washington Hilton in black-tie attire. From Prada to Pucci (and Monique Lhuillier on Michelle Obama), designer duds draped the fit frames of our favorite celebrities, who showcased their personal styles with an array of different looks. Hayden Panettiere in a yellow Katherine Kidd dress and Katy Perry, who donned an earth toned Giambattista Valli design, both chose classically romantic gowns with flowing chiffon skirts, strapless bodices, and a whimsical, princess-like feel. Natalie Dormer in Marios Schwab and Kerry Washington dressed in a floor length frock by Wes Gordon, in contrast, boasted a more modern, structured look with futuristic silhouettes and a methodical black and white palette. Soft versus sharp: which style do you like best?
