It wasn’t the political event of the weekend (that would involve Osama bin Laden), but the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was definitely the big #2 on the Washington scene. President Obama roasted Donald Trump, SNL‘s Seth Meyers roasted Obama, and Barry Diller proclaimed the evening “a ratfuck.” Success!
Honorable mention to the fashion, which, thanks to an influx of star power (and star stylists), was a highlight of the evening. Michelle Obama wore Fall ’08 Halston with Irit jewels, but the young actresses who flocked to the Hilton on Saturday went a touch more contemporary. Our favorites included Rosario Dawson, in scarlet Escada (above left); Mila Kunis in Versace (right); and Kerry Washington, in Marc Jacobs’ Chinoiserie collection for Louis Vuitton (center). Yours?
Twenty-five years in business has done little to stymie Kenneth Cole’s penchant for puns. Last night’s Silver Anniversary celebration was no exception. “As we’ve always said, to be aware is even more important than what you wear,” the designer opined at the launch of Awearness: Inspiring Stories About How to Make a Difference. “I think everyone wants to make a change,” Cole added of his potential audience. “They just don’t know how—that’s what this book does.” A who’s who of the civic-minded, the 86-story compendium features essays from the likes of Sir Elton John, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and actress/activist Jane Fonda. On hand to celebrate: Lauren Bush, who contributed a piece on world hunger, and Diane von Furstenberg, sporting an Obama pin on her lapel. Turns out most people still had the election on their minds. Co-host (and Obama canvasser) Rosario Dawson was visibly elated. “At least there’s a feeling right now that some things can change,” the actress said. “I don’t think that people have felt like that in a long time. We have an opportunity to do something right now, and that’s huge.”
