It's not often that the President and big-name journalists like Katie Couric find themselves mingling with the likes of Victoria's Secret models and A-list actresses in custom designer gowns, but that's part of what makes the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, which gathered for the 101st time on Saturday, so magic. 

One of the best looks of the night came from actress Michelle Monaghan, who opted for a sparkling red strapless gown by Prabal Gurung. As elegant as it was effortless, Monaghan accented the look with easy, undone waves, some simple cuffs and a clutch. When your clothing fits this well — and you're as beautiful as Monaghan — you don't need much flare to make a statement. 

While Gurung likely got plenty of attention for the stunning look he created for Monaghan, he also spent the weekend raising awareness among the fashion crowd for the devastating earthquakes that hit his home country of Nepal the same day as the Correspondents' Dinner.
