Washington, D.C. was the most popular place to be this weekend! Some of the biggest names in Hollywood jetted to the nation’s capital to catch a glimpse of President Obama for the 98th Annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and the oodles of cocktail parties that came along with it. After garnering plenty of laughs as host of the event—where Reese Witherspoon (in Monique Lhuillier) mingled with New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand—comedian Jimmy Kimmel ventured over to the French Ambassador’s house for the Bloomberg andVanity Fair reception, along with Sofia Vergara (in David Meister), Kate Hudson (in Jenny Packham), George Clooney, and Kerry Washington (in Calvin Klein). “I thought the POTUS [President of the United States] was hilarious,” Tweeted Washington. “It was a wonderful weekend.” See more stars at the weekend’s hottest events—D.C. and beyond—in the gallery.
The big day is almost here! On the season finale of Hart of Dixie, Lemon Breeland (Jaime King) prepares to tie the knot with George Tucker (Scott Porter), and Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson) gets into the wedding-day spirit, too!

Hollywood descended upon Washington, D.C. this weekend to attend the 98th annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

At a brunch during the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, Camilla Belle wore an understated nude lip. We love how the barely-there shade maintained a matte finish without making her lips look parched. The key to the perfect matte pucker is all in the prep. Exfoliate your lips and apply an ultra-hydrating balm before layering on your lipstick. And remember, not all lipsticks are created equal. Look for a soft, creamy matte that is easy to apply and easy on your lips. When it’s time to reapply, take everything off and start over so the product doesn’t get cakey.
