Elizabeth Banks In Antonio Berardi – 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Despite matching the red carpet, no one could miss Elizabeth Banks at the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, held on Saturday night at the Washington Hilton.

The ‘Hunger Games’ actress seems to still be embracing her character, Effie Trinket’s love for bright colour on the red carpet. No complaints here.

On this occasion, Elizabeth opted for a bright-red Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 dress.

The otherwise basic strapless column gown boasts a pleated peplum which narrows her waist.

Elizabeth accessorized her dress with a selection of gold cuff bracelet, gold hooped earrings, plus a Lara Bohnic black-and-gold clutch.

A tousled updo and a crimson lip colour completed her bombshell look.

Ginnifer Goodwin In H&M – 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

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

The ‘Once Upon A Time’ actress wore a dress from the H&M Red Carpet Conscious Collection.

Her light-grey dress made of silk and organic cotton features a sleeveless bodice and voluminous skirt with asymmetrical raw-edge ruffles.

Separating the textured bodice from the ruffled skirt, Ginnifer accessorized with a black leather belt, plus Bulgari jewels and a Stark black-and-gold ‘Seductress’ clutch embellished with crystals.

Flawless hair and makeup including a red pout completed the look.

Charlize Theron In Emilio Pucci – 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Charlize Theron also attended Saturday evening’s 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, held at the Washington Hilton.

The South African beauty wore a black Emilio Pucci Pre-Fall 2012 gown which Charlize layered with a nude lining.

She did flash some skin, however, as the dress had an open back.

Manolo Blanhik heels and a Judith Leiber clutch accessorize the look.

With a severely pulled-back bun, this look is lacking one pop of colour – pink lips or emerald earrings may have done the trick.

What do you think?

Claire Danes In Vivienne Westwood – 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Claire Danes seemed to take her invitation to the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, held at the Washington Hilton on Saturday evening, to heart when it came to picking out a dress.

The star of ‘Homeland’, which President Barack Obama has previously admitted is his favourite television show, wore a white Vivienne Westwood satin dress with an asymmetrical halter neckline.

Known for her unfailing devotion to classic tailored silhouettes, this is quite a departure for Claire – but in the wrong direction, unfortunately.

Paired with bright red lipstick, her white satin halter bears an unfortunate resemblance to Marilyn Monroe.

Perhaps if she had taken the time to style her hair, this look would have seemed at least a bit more pulled together overall.

Reese Witherspoon In Monique Lhuillier – 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Reese Witherspoon walked the red carpet before heading inside at the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday evening, held at the Washington Hilton.

The pregnant actress concealed her barely-there bump wearing a black Monique Lhuillier Spring 2012 gown with an asymmetrical neckline and keyhole detailing.

Gorgeous light-blue Irene Neuwirth jewels, including drop earrings and a large cocktail ring, help to bring out Reese’s baby blue eyes.

A ‘40’s inspired ‘do and natural makeup complete the look.

Hopefully Reese has more red-carpet maternity-glam looks for us in the future. She looks amazing and was easily one of the best of the night.

Zooey Deschanel In Oscar de la Renta – 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

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.

Cheryl Hines attended the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, DC this weekend.

The actress opted for a Georges Hobeika Couture gown.

Her hand beaded floral silver and English rose one shoulder gown is exquisite. I’m blown away by the details in the close up.

A silver clutch, a chic updo and dazzling drop earrings completed her look.
