Fashion and Fun from the White House Correspondents' Dinner Red Carpet

Esther Zuckerman

Ah, the White House Correspondents' Dinner. The place where political reporters get to ask questions that would make Us Weekly proud and the pretty people of Hollywood get to mingle with the, well, people of the Beltway. Conan O'Brien will be making some people laugh and—hopefully—some people squirm, and we'll be here all night giving you updates on who is wearing what and who is making awkward small talk. (Will Duck Dynasty and Barbra Streisand interact?) E! is live streaming the red carpet, getting excited about security sweeps, proving just how weird this event is. Stay with us as we update through the night.
