It was the most glamorous red carpet event since the Oscars and the celebrities dressed accordingly when they descended on Washington, D.C. at Saturday's White House Correspondents Association Dinner.
Kate Hudson wore the night's most dazzling look, stepping out in a purple sequined Jenny Packham gown with embellished cuffs. She accessorized the sparkly design with a sleek Edie Parker clutch and elegant high bun.
Charlize Theron wowed in a black long-sleeve Emilio Pucci look layered with nude lining, Manolo Blanhik heels and a Judith Leiber clutch.
After rocking several fashion-forward looks during the recent Hunger Games promo tour, Elizabeth Banks continued her style streak in a vibrant red Antonio Berardi strapless gown with on-trend peplum skirt.
Some of the A-list attendees who didn't quite achieve red carpet perfection: Ginnifer Goodwin in a voluminous ivory ruffled H&M Red Carpet Conscious Collection creation, Rosario Dawson, who flashed way too much cleavage for the conservative affair in her metallic green gown and Lindsay Lohan in a safe-yet-lackluster plunging black dress.
