Saturday evening's annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, affectionately referred to by many as "Nerd Prom," culled together a diverse range of guests in Washington, D.C.-adjacent circles and beyond. It's not often that an event hosts the likes of Dame Helen Mirren, Kendall Jenner and Joe Biden in the same room as Kerry Washington, Adriana Lima and "Broad City"'s Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson. If anyone can make it happen, though, it's the guest of honor Barack Obama, who closed out the last WHCD speech of his presidency with "Obama out" and a mic drop.
While Mirren accessorized her orchid purple Dolce & Gabbana dress with a temporary tattoo in tribute to Prince, Jenner, a guest of USA Today, kept it classic in Vivienne Westwood and a prom-tastic up-do. (The model also kept her cool when Obama poked fun at her during his speech, saying, "I'm not exactly sure what [Jenner] does, but I'm told my Twitter mentions are about to go through the roof.") And while Coachella concluded last weekend, a surprising number of chokers — including one on Rachel McAdams, who wore a strapless Giorgio Armani column gown — made appearances at the Washington Hilton.
