WASHINGTON, D.C. – US President Barack Obama’s comedian star shone at last Sunday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, generating more laughs from the audience than talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. Pres. Obama poked fun at Donald Trump (whose daughter, Ivanka, was there), mingled with actors like George Clooney (and the Jonas brothers, too), and said knock-knock jokes to reality star Kim Kardashian (although her presence, along with Lindsay Lohan’s, was not well-received by all).

Hollywood’s A-listers flocked to the event, almost making it as big as the Oscars — with a bit more class. Check out the fashion trends RAPPLER saw the stars sporting, through photos published by Celebuzz.
