C-SPAN Rocks Red Carpet

The Washington Hilton was rocking with the sheer star power of the guests mixing & mingling inside at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday.

When my sister told me that C-SPAN would be covering the red carpet arrivals in  addition to the dinner, I was pretty excited ~ the WHCD is about as close as DC gets to its own Golden Globes and Oscars.

I adore E! and Giuliana, but C-SPAN’s candid coverage of the DC and Hollywood glitterati pouring into the Hilton ~ then filtering up and down the escalators, often unaware of the cameras and the awkward moments being captured ~ was a fun change and made for perfect people watching.


Jimmy Kimmel was just the right mix of funny and irreverent, and the President had some great lines, too. The First Lady was having a ball in a pretty floral brocade Naeem Khan strapless gown.

Here’s  a quick recap of some style highlights, lovelies.

Kate Hudson ~ purple and piled-high ~ love the Jenny Packham sequin gown and ballerina bun.

Kerry Washington ~ glowed in creamsicle colored Calvin Klein and Roger Vivier clutch.

Tory Burch wore baby blue Carolina Herrera.

Sofia Vergara in a party-ready David Mason frock.

Reese Witherspoon channeled Grace Kelly with a classic chignon and Monique Lhuillier gown.

Arianna Huffington in neon yellow Nanette Lepore.

Always adorbs Leslie Mann in floral Naeem Khan.

Ginnifer Goodwin ~ looking very angry to have her photo taken, in white tiered gown from the H&M Red Carpet Conscious Collection.

Rashida Jones in the “Cora” peplum gown from the Tory Burch Fall 2012 collection.

Charlize Theron in black lace Emilio Pucci and Judith Leiber clutch.

Eva Longoria in Marchesa frock and Brian Atwood pumps.

Zooey Deschanel smiles in a gold beaded oyster Oscar de la Renta gown, despite the crick in her neck.

“Ladies, please, one at a time…” 

Who cares who George Clooney was wearing… le sigh.
