Although the White House Correspondence Dinner was no Grammy’s red carpet, the icons of the entertainment world certainly did make a statement on Saturday, April 25, 2015.
Instead of tuning in to E! to watch the stars strut their way to the main event, people found their way to C-Span to find out what their favorites were wearing.
First Lady Michelle Obama strutted in her beautifully custom-beaded gown made especially for her by designer Zac Posen. Mrs. Obama seriously knows how to look causal, but proper at the same time. Good Job, Mrs. Obama, I give you three thumbs up out of five.
Just as stunning, model Chanel Iman stood out in her light sky blue gown by Zuhair Murad, perfectly shaping her stunning figure and facial structure. Iman’s admirable make-up and Cinderella-like dress just takes the trophy of “Best Look”! I absolutely loved this look – five out five thumbs up!
“She looked beautiful. Her eyes shine brighter than the stars in the sky,” says freshman Kevin Senkus.
Joining the Murad group, model and wife of singer John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, worked that red carpet with her beaded, navy blue gown with a touch of sexiness to spice up the game. The model definitely knows how to glam up the red carpet. It is such an amazing look, Teigen. Love everything about it – five out of five.
Following in the beauty subject, soon-to-be-mom Naya Rivera-Dorsey displayed her favorite accessory – her baby bump! Rivera-Dorsey looked beautiful as ever in her all white Tadashi Shoji gown, along with a silver clutch by her side. I love it, mommy-to-be – five out of five!
Sure, there are lots and lots of great looks, but I cannot help but point out the ones who sadly did not make the cut.
Gorgeous actress, writer, and former fashion model Jane Fonda clearly got the wrong call for the wrong event. Fonda wore Gustavo Cadile with a Perrin Paris clutch. The clutch was not the problem here… the problem was her Cat-Woman look-a-like dress.
“Jane is a beautiful, skinny woman. She shouldn’t be wearing something that makes her look like a stick of licorice. I’m sorry, Jane, but why?” says freshman Victoria DeAraujo.
Along with Fonda, actress Brit Marling did not exactly satisfy me with her choice of colors. Wearing a Roksanda dress, Marling’s blue touch-ups did not save her outfit. It looks out of place and awkward. I give this look two thumbs up out of five.
Fortunately, the Nerd Prom did impress me with the star’s styles and outfits. There was a small majority of people who did not impress me, but I wish they had. Good thing there were only a small amount who chose the disappointing look. The White House Correspondents Dinner gets a four thumbs up out of five for fashion for me.
It looks like there are some celebrities that actually take their fashion seriously. President Obama, you invited the right people. Kudos to you.
Who do you think takes the "Best Dressed" trophy?
