It was a busy night at the White House with the annual Correspondents' Dinner attracting hoardes of Tinsel Town starlets. Surprising many on the red carpet was Lindsay Lohan, who missed her first flight out to DC because she had been up partying into the wee hours - I guess old habits die hard. Despite the hiccup, she arrived on time at the event wearing a black satin halterneck gown.

Some of my favourite looks from the dinner were courtesy of Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta, Charlize Theron in lacy Pucci and Kate Hudson who was a breath of fresh air on bright purple sequins and a fancy high bun. While expecting mums Reese Witherspoon and Anna Paquin each chose the safe long black dress option to enhance their baby bumps.

Other famous celebrities to attend the prestigious event included Dakota Fanning, Kim Kardashian, Elle Macpherson, Claire Danes, and Sofia Vergara.
