Celebrties walked the red carpet in D.C. Saturday for the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. The night’s theme was simple, yet elegant.

Coral pinks, and deep blues, and floral prints scattered the runway.

Celebrities were dressed to the 10s in the finest of designer wear to attend the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.

There was a common theme amongst female celebrities on the red carpet who were attending the event. The typical look included a curve-hugging dress, usually a solid color, and minimal jewelry.

Their hair also had a common style; most of the females could be seen with side swept bangs, loose flowing hair only gently held back by an accessory.

Cecily Strong worked the floral trend in this purple and black  gown by J. Mendel.

Female celebs like Cecily Strong and Katie Couric embodied spring in their looks, opting for either gowns or accessories that incorporated florals. Judd stole the show in this category with a white and purple floral gown by Badgley Mischka, and green flowers pinning back her hair.

Although many of the celebrities fashion game was going strong, there were a few disappointments.

Idina Menzel looked more like she was attending a high school dance. With her bright pink silk gown, and a small sparkly band wrapped around the waist, her look seemed to have come off of a junior prom’s dance floor.

Jane Fonda stood out on the red carpet, for better or worse, in a tight fitting mostly sequin black ensemble. Her figure looked great, but the dress gave off a weird shine.

Connie Britton looks great in pink, but the shape of the dress didn't flatter her figure at all.

Connie Britton could have benefited from a more form flattering outfit. Although Britton is clearly in good shape, the upper half of her dress left something to be desired. It looked as if it could’ve been brought in a little bit more, and it would’ve saved her look.

One of the more dramatic looks was sported by Chrissy Teigen who wore a blue gown, with sheer sleeves, and a slit that ended just below her hip bone.

This was a welcomed change from what celebrities normally wear.

There was a healthy mix of bold and nude lips. Both Meagan Camper and Teigen rocked the maroon lips, even though summer is fast approaching. It was a dramatic statement to make, but they both pulled it off effortlessly.

Laverne Cox was also said to have stolen the show in a figure-hugging gray silk dress by Ines Di Santo. Her jewelry was kept simple, including a large ring on her right hand, and an elegant bracelet on her right wrist.

Maria Menounos jumped on the pink gown band wagon while showing off a little more skin than most in a coral colored Stella McCartney dress. There were cutouts just under her chest showing off her toned stuck, that led down to her waist into a large gold band. She accessorized with a small gold clutch to complete the look.

Johnny Weir shook things up with a different type of suit. He wore a fitted suit, with leather pointed dress shoes. He accented the look with a large plush, fluffy bow tie, and jeweled headband to pull back his hair.

Of course, how could we forget to mention President Obama and his First Lady Michelle Obama? Obama looked dashing in a black three-piece suit, a black bow tie, a white pocket square, and an American flag pin on his left lapel.

Michelle wore her hair in tight, short curls. According to, “’Her locks were styled courtesy of her longtime hair guru, Johnny Wright. “Her hair was curly and fun, so I wanted to mix it up with her makeup as well.’” She wore a silver sparkly gown with halter sleeves to show off her famously toned arms.

The runway looks were a welcomed change from a typical Hollywood film premieres that usually results in celebrities decked out in gaudy jewelry that costs more than the film did to produce.

I have known for many years that writing was my passion, and through exploring this dream I've found my a strong interest in fashion. When I'm not doing that I try and work through my Netflix queue, and go shopping online.
