Stars shine at White House Correspondents' Dinner

A host of Hollywood's finest stepped out for the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner in Washington DC on Saturday night (May 3).

Freida Pinto stunned in a pastel peach Thakoon that featured tiny iridescent embellishments and cut-out detailing at the chest. The actress accessorised simply with a silver clutch, wearing her hair slicked back into a neat upstyle.

She posed alongside model and The Face judge Anne V, who wore a similarly fashion-forward white gown with a cut-out panel at the waist and asymmetrical straps.

12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o scored another red carpet home run in an Oscar de La Renta gown. The dress, which had a distinctly 80s vibe, featured a black and white polka dot bandeau top, oversized ruffled peplum and fishtail skirt. A matching Oscar de Le Renta clutch and diamond drop earrings were the perfect accompaniment to the dress, while a bold fuchsia lipstick added a pop of colour.

Modern Family's Sofia Vergara chose a strapless gold and pale pink fishtail-style gown, wearing her hair in loose waves.

Olivia Munn chose a pale pink J Mendel dress that featured cream lace panels, embossed materials and detailed stitching, kicking out into a fishtail skirt.

Jessica Simpson went for a strapless floral Carolina Herrera gown with a flowing skirt.

Model Irina Shayk broke from tradition in a sparkling Atelier Versace jumpsuit that featured a bold cape with shoulder pads. The jumpsuit featured a deep v neckline, knotted front and pockets, giving it a more laidback feel. She finished off the look with a pair of fierce pointed courts.

First Lady Michelle Obama was a vision in a fairytale grey tulle Marchesa gown that featured a drop shoulder, and floral embroidered bodice.

Orange is the New Black star Taylor Schilling kept it simple in a demure Zuhair Murad dress which featured long sleeves and lace panelling at the waist.

Kristen Bell went for a navy Dolce & Gabbana satin gown.

Katherine McPhee provided a welcome burst of colour in a coral Paule Ka dress and Bionda Castana shoes. The dress featured a youthful and modern ankle-length cut and embellishments at the neckline.

Supermodel Linda Evangelista stunned in a simple black gown, which she accessorised with a burgundy fur coat, gold jewellery and a classic red lip.

The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies looked simply stunning in a sleek black evening gown and pointed heels.
