I get that this is a White House event and that attendees are expected to dress in a White Housey way, but appropriate doesn’t have to mean boring or even ugly. The fashion at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was giving me mediocre prom dress vibes. Were the outfits lackluster for security reasons? Safe dresses don’t make the actual event any safer. Did everyone dress extra boring so that Michelle Obama could have another shining fashion moment (which she did, in a glamorous Monique Lhuillier number)? Whatever the reason, scroll down and get ready to not be excited.
Katy Perry, this is so non-Katy-Perry of you. I call this “woodland prom circa 2003.”
I’m not thrilled, Anna, I’m really not. You should know better.
See? Another prom moment. I actually think I wore this to homecoming in ’05.
At least give us a statement necklace or something, Amy! This is basically an elongated t-shirt with a peplum that decided to give up on life.
I think I see some crystals or some suggestion of embellishment, at least.
