The Huffington Post Pre-Inaugural Ball

Hayden Panettiere wore a light two-tone pastel coloured Monique Lhuillier Spring 2009 strapless chiffon gown.

I am not sure what up with Hayden and strapless gowns, but they always seem to squash her boobs.

The colour of the gown is amazing and flatters her skin tone. She completed the look with a slick updo.

RIAA and Feeding America Inauguration Charity Ball

I don’t even know what this is? An preview of Rihanna’s 2009 Halloween costume perhaps?

What a mess.

Her Jasmine Di Milo Fall 2007 dress, looked much better on the runway.

Speaking of a mess, Courteney Cox arrived wearing a black suit, with a leather trim.

I’m thinking she went to her attic and rummage through the box that said ’80s Clothes To Be Thrown Away’.

Sadly she never got round to it.

Alicia Witt was the only shining light on a red carpet of hideousness, as he stepped out looking delightful wearing a two tone Malandrino Resort 2009 dress, which had a multi-coloured cummerbund of pailette.

She completed her look with her hair teased up in a loose updo, and a gold box clutch.

Mid Atlantic Ball

Jennifer Lopez wore a mint green one shouldered Marchesa gown when she performed at this event. It looks white under the house lights, but I assure you from other pictures it is mint green.

The dress is truly stunning with lace panels on the sides.

Jennifer has been wearing a lot of Marchesa lately, like she did when the brand first launched. It suits her so well.

Neighborhood Inaugural Ball

Singer Faith Hill wore a gorgeous black tiered Carolina Herrera Spring 2009 gown, with ruffled detailing.

Mariah Carey stuffed herself into this black velvet and lace Dolce & Gabbana off-the-shoulder gown.

Would it really hurt her to go up a size?

The Creative Coalition’s 2009 Inaugural Ball

Kerry Washington premiered a new do, as her hair was pulled back, with sweeping bangs.

The actress looked gorgeous in her couture, navy blue tulle Georges Chakra gown. The gown sparkled with Swarovski crystals.

Artist Making an Impact Pre-Inaugural Dinner

Sarah Silverman like to act the fool on the red carpet, but for once she looked really good wearing a beautiful Pamella Roland red chiffon halter gown. She scrubs up nice, when she wants to.
