Who Was Best Dressed At The White House Correspondents’ Dinner?

-------

Maybe the much talked-about new White House social secretary, Jeremy Bernard, had something to do with it, or perhaps it’s because it’s an election year, but this weekend’s 98th annual Correspondents’ Association Dinner was its most star-studded ever. Everyone from Reese Witherspoon and Charlize Theron to Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan made appearances, mingling with the President and the First Lady, as well as the usual array of politicians and journalists. At the top of our best-dressed list stand Kate Hudson in a dazzling purple Jenny Packham gown, Dakota Fanning (pictured) in an embellished, sky blue Prada number, and Elizabeth Banks, who sported a bright red Antonio Berardi column with a peplum waist.

Out And About For FNO

-------

There was a lot of ground to cover in Manhattan last night with what seemed like every retailer and designer in the city hosting an event for Fashion’s Night Out. Style.com’s editors hit the streets and braved the crowds, and among them we found the likes of Marc Jacobs on Mercer Street, Nicki Minaj at Yves Saint Laurent, and a cast of Victoria’s Secret Angels on Houston Street. Here, a few of our favorite parties from the night.

Downtown at Opening Ceremony, lines formed around the block outside the Ace Hotel, and the streetside carnival booths were mostly empty. Why? The real action was inside, where Delfina Delettrez offered a special bracelet at a booth that also provided aura readings, Rodarte created a special T-shirt, and Band of Outsiders customized tote bags with partygoers’ portraits. Le porc de résistance: Miss Piggy—star of the latest Opening Ceremony collaboration, OC x The Muppets—who took the stage for an interview with OC’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim. Spike Jonze took the opportunity to profess his lifelong love to the pig, who promptly rebuffed him. Maybe he’d have better luck with the next act: RuPaul’s Drag Race star Manila Luzon, kitted out as Eva Perón, who lip-synched “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina.” Perón wasn’t the only one busting out ballads last night. At the MAC store on Spring Street, Beth Ditto performed a four-song set, including covers of Madonna’s “Vogue” and Dolly’s “Jolene.” Before she started her set, she gave Style.com a message for the week: “If you shoplifted, I hope you got a lot. Happy fashion week!”

In the Meatpacking District at Stella McCartney, the lack of A/C—one of McCartney’s famous green initiatives, perhaps?—made for a tropical atmosphere, but DJ Alexa Chung did her best to keep things cool with some sixties pop. Nearby at the Standard Hotel’s Biergarten, photographer Bruce Weber and Nan Bush assembled a coterie of industry pals, who came to check out Weber’s pop-up Weberbilt shop, offering underwear and T-shirts from the photographer’s own label. Hunky models in Weberbilt aprons were on hand as customer service but, in a surprising turn of events, didn’t model the goods.

Uptown at Bergdorf Goodman, however, we spotted lots of models—four-legged ones—on the runway with their owners, including designers Reem Acra, Michelle Ochs of Cushnie et Ochs, and the Badgley Mischka boys. Thakoon, Linda Fargo, and Michael Kors were also stars of the Bergdorf bash. Up the street, a crowd waited anxiously for the star and DJ of the night, Drake, to arrive. As for his first piece of Versace, he told Style.com, “I have had this Versace blanket for a very long time that I love—it’s like an original one from back when they did comforters. But my favorite is a Versace velour suit—I love it so much I won’t even wear it anymore because I don’t want to ruin it.”

Yea, Nay, or Eh: Dakota Fanning Gives Us The Slip

-------

On a red carpet populated with the likes of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner (vampire, moody starlet, and werewolf, respectively), the best strategy for a secondary star may be not to show up at all. Not so Dakota Fanning. We barely recognized the teen thespian at New Moon‘s L.A. premiere (Fanning plays a pint-size but sinister bloodsucker), but that’s only because her slick-straight locks and grown-up poise are such a far cry from the adolescent Marc Jacobs model we once knew. We love the peekaboo lace Valentino dress but wonder if the camp that denounced Miley Cyrus’ precocious turn in Vanity Fair will find it too risqué for Miss Fanning. She may look like a mini Gwyneth Paltrow, but she’s still only 15. What do you think of her nighttime look? Leave your comments below.
