Anna Kendrick In J Mendel - 100th Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Anna Kendrick attended the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner held at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, DC.

Wearing a timelessly elegant rich purple J. Mendel Fall 2014 gown, the rich purple crepe design features a ruched bandeau-style bodice, additional ruched detail around the waist, a triangular keyhole at the back and a tonal ruched chiffon gusset at the skirt.

This is the ultimate in refined eveningwear; styled with a simple box clutch, wavy tresses and neutral makeup, she couldn’t look more sophisticated.

Michelle Obama In Marchesa – 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Michelle Obama was the belle of the ball at the annual White House Correspondent’s Association Gala at the Washington Hilton hotel on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, D.C which was attended by journalists, politicians and celebrities.

Just like the 2012 and 2013 event, we have to make do with this cropped photo of the First Lady, but that doesn’t dull the impact of her stunning Marchesa Fall 2013 gown.

The grey tulle dropped-shoulder gown with silver floral embroidery, modified to be sleeveless, was styled with Cathy Waterman jewellery.

Nude lips and a honey-highlighted bouffant completed her simply gorgeous look.

Cynthia Nixon In Tia Cibani – 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Cynthia Nixon attended the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner held at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, DC.

Like Kristen Bell and Lupita Nyong’o, this was also one of the few looks I didn’t like on this red carpet.

The actress wore a Tia Cibani long-sleeve gown with a jarring blurred rose print which again was way too long.

Going an inch or two shorter and sleeveless may have saved this.

Lupita Nyong’o In Oscar de la Renta – 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Lupita Nyong'o In Oscar de la Renta - 100th Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Lupita Nyong’o attended the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, DC.

I hate to say it, but I’m not crazy about this Oscar de la Renta Fall 2014 gown at all.

It had great potential to be another Lupita fashion homerun, but sadly this look is making her appear wider than she is.

I don’t think it’s the fault of the tulle black-and-white polka dot peplum, but rather the black silk faille skirt. It needed to be narrower, more streamlined and shorter as it is bunching up on the floor.

I’m surprised at how bad the skirt is tailored.

Look back to her Dior Couture BAFTAs gown where she looked 6ft tall, then come back to this. This gown has the opposite, shortening effect.

A complementary Oscar de la Renta ‘Goa’ clutch, Fred Leighton jewels and a hot-pink lip completed her look.

Darby Stanchfield In Alberta Ferretti – 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Darby Stanchfield attended the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner held at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, DC.

As you know nothing delights me more than seeing a gorgeous red head wearing a green gown. It’s one of the few fail-safe red carpet combinations.

This Alberta Ferretti Spring 2014 chiffon gown with floral beaded embroidery swept me off my feet so hard, I am likely to remain horizontal for the rest of the day.

A glossy nude lip, curly updo and gold hooped earrings completed this breath-taking look.

You may remember that Macarena Garcia wore this same gown to during the Malaga Film Festival.

Julianna Margulies In vintage Jean Dessès – 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Julianna Margulies In vintage Jean Dessès - 100th Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Julianna Margulies attended the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner held at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, DC.

Giving us no surprise by opting for black, ‘The Good Wife’ actress wore a vintage Jean Dessès black chiffon gown with a satin cummerbund styled with black pumps, a black clutch and silver Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

As always, Julianna was the epitome of elegance with a glossy red lip and sleek bun providing the finishing touches.

I’m really admiring the arm candy; and I’m not talking about her Roger Vivier clutch.
