Best Dressed: Nerd Prom Edition

Every year the White House invites the most influential people over for a big dinner. Affectionately called “Nerd Prom,” the correspondents dinner is a fashion show for those attending. I think it’s absolutely amazing to sit in a room, rub shoulders with outstanding people and eat dinner with the President of the United States. I mean, who wouldn’t want to meet President Obama or any other current president at the time?!


Anywho, tons of famous folks get dressed up for the occasion and stroll the red carpet. Now, we get to see who’s wearing who and who they’re most excited to see. Get ready to see who I picked and like for best dressed.





Kerry Washington looked absolutely stunning in basic black and white. This gorgeous printed Wes Gordon dress fits her like a glove.


This is Darren Criss. We don’t know what he’s wearing but he’s damn sure wearing it well!


There really isn’t anything Connie Britton can do that’ll make me dislike her. This blue lace Temperly London dress only makes me like her more.

Sofia Vergara always looks amazing so this Herve L. Leroux dress is no exception.

Ahh supermodels. Chrissy Teigen chose this Kaufmanfranco after battling with zippers on her first choice. She stunned us all with fiance John Legend.


Apparently blue was the color of the night and I have no qualms with that at all. Thank goodness these gorgeous ladies don’t either! Looking incredibly ahh-mazing from left to right.

Speaking of blue, Claire Danes chose a light shade of the hue in this Prada sheath dress.

Megan Hilty shines in the Pantone color of the year by Badgley Mischka.

Julia Louis-Dreyfuss in Dolce & Gabbana and Michelle Dockery in Elie Saab both chose deep purple to wow on the red carpet. THIS is the purple you want to wear.

Amy Poehler decided to wear this shimmering Basler dress in white and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
