Robin Wright In Rolando Santana Atelier – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Robin Wright In Rolando Santana Atelier - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association

‘House of Cards’ actress Robin Wright must have been laughing at the ‘House of Nerds’ spoof video that opened the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C.

Yesterday evening, she wore a navy Rolando Santana Spring 2013 Atelier stretch matte taffeta gown.

At certain angles, the ‘Sonja’ dress’s feminine ruffle, asymmetric neckline just looked like her shoulder strap had fallen down.

But it still won points in my book, as it softened the edgy appeal of Robin’s uber-cropped blonde pixie ‘do.

She kept her makeup minimal (a bronzing glow worked just fine) and her accessories on the light side, with a conservative pair of Ivanka Trump diamond earrings and bracelet and a silver Cecelia clutch.

Connie Britton In Temperley London – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

‘Nashville’ actress Connie Britton joined co-star Hayden Panettiere at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, hosted last night at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C.

The flame-haired actress was singing the blues in a cerulean dress from the 2013 Red Carpet Capsule Collection of one of Kate Middleton’s go-to designers, Temperley London.

The cap-sleeve mermaid gown served up an appropriate combination of conservative and come-hither, revealing and concealing in sheer lace. I just wasn’t so fond of the sheen that reflected off this dress.

But there’s no denying she can wear the blue hue well, what with her side-swept auburn waves.

A matching Foley + Corinna clutch, along with Jimmy Choo shoes and Kwiat jewels completed the look.

Jessica Pare In Antonio Berardi – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Jessica Paré relied on good old-Hollywood glamour to carry her through last night’s 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress was a classic beauty in this architectural Antonio Berardi midnight-blue dress, which was slashed through with curve-enhancing dark panels.

Accessories were kept to a sophisticated minimum with a small Roger Vivier clutch and Nam Cho jewels in complementary shades of blue.

Her side-swept updo was perfect for this asymmetric exaggerated-shoulder gown—and for showing off that stunning pair of earrings.

Don Draper would certainly approve.

Amy Poehler In Basler – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Funny girl Amy Poehler played up her serious fashion side at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, hosted by Conan O’Brien, at the Washington Hilton on Saturday night in Washington, D.C.

The ‘Parks and Recreation’ actress went decidedly glam in her beaded white Basler gown paired with simple EF Collection bangles on each wrist.

The short sleeves and mock peplum, nipped-in waist weren’t only figure-flattering, they also kept this dress fresh and style-forward.

Amy’s cute, curly bob and bright magenta-pink lippie added a touch of lighthearted fun to her sparkling entrance, however, I would have opted for a more neutral nail lacquer here.

Hayden Panettiere In Katharine Kidd – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Hayden Panettiere attended the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C., which is affectionately known as the ‘nerd prom’ for journalists.

The ‘Nashville’ starlet certainly put on her prom-queen best last night.

She attempted to defy gravity in her pale-yellow gown from Katharine Kidd’s Spring 2012 collection. The sideless and strapless effect was accomplished with illusion mesh panels.

But the Swarovski crystal beaded-thread strands and the draped-curtain sides, hanging on to this silk tulle pageant-princess dress, were just begging to be pulled off.

I thought the braided updo trend had run its course, but Hayden brought Heidi back to the dinner.

Bohemian gemstone earrings, an Ashlyn’d clutch and a pert red lip polished off this schizophrenic look that read to costume-y for this event.

Natalie Dormer In Marios Schwab – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Natalie Dormer In Marios Schwab - 2013 White House Correspondents' AssociationOur ‘Game of Thrones’ girl, Natalie Dormer, walked the red carpet with ‘Cosmopolitan’ editor-in-chief Joanna Coles at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton last night in Washington, D.C.

The British actress wore a Marios Schwab Fall 2011 gown that featured pearl-studded, geometric embellishment at the bodice.

Since she removed the runway’s waist-cinching, harness-inspired belt, the most interesting part of this look actually came to me in the gorgeous emerald Elahn bauble on her finger.

She accessorized further with a black and silver Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch and a simple pair of earring studs.

A nude lippie and half-up, half-down hair completed the look, although on this occasion, I wish she had worn her hair all up for a more polished, edgy effect.
