Zooey Deschanel attended the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, held at the Washington Hilton on Saturday evening.

The star of ‘New Girl’ chose an Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2012 gown, not shown in the runway presentation.

Her strapless light grey gown, embellished with metallic silver polka-dot embroidery, is beautiful in true Oscar de la Renta form, but the dress would’ve looked better had it been hemmed, no?

A side ponytail, red lips and kohl-rimmed eyes, which are a tad too heavy for her delicate look, provided the finishing touches.
