It was a night of many laughs at the 100th anniversary of the White House Correspondents' Association dinner in Washington, D.C. The Washington Hilton ballroom was filled with politicians, celebrities and media elite for Obama’s humorous speech and special guest comedian Joel McHale.
Pics of our President, FLOTUS and celebs such as Lupita Nyong’o, Kevin Hart & more inside…
First Lady Michelle Obama was effortlessly gorgeous in a white drop-shoulder tulle ball gown by Marchesa. Our fashionable First Lady was simply elegant in her beautiful embroidered gown as she enjoyed the laughs of the night.
Thumbs up for the First Lady!
President Obama was hilarious during his speech, cracking jokes on media outlets such as FOX News & CNN, the government shut down, and even mentioned Donald Sterling and The Clippers.
Here are the highlights:
Special guest “The Soup” host Joel McHale stumbled through his routine of poorly executed jokes, which left the audience groaning more than laughing. Must have been the nerves.
Gotta love him.
Celebs on the red carpet at the "Nerd Prom":
Oscar winning “IT” girl Lupita Nyong’o did not disappoint on the red carpet. She stunned in a black polka dot tulle peplum Oscar de la Renta gown with matching clutch and a pink lip.
After roasting Mike Epps on Twitter a few days ago, comedian Kevin Hart and his girlfriend Eniko cleaned up nice for the red carpet.
Super Bowl champ Russell Wilson filed for divorce from his wife recently, so he hit the red carpet with his mother, Tammy.
Russell’s teammate Richard Sherman also hit the carpet alongside his girlfriend, Ashley Lillian.
Despite his foot being wrapped in a boot, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was all smiles on the red carpet. He is currently recovering from ankle surgery but is expected to play this season.
Rev. Al Sharpton hit the red carpet with his girlfriend Aisha McShaw along with MSNBC host Ronan Farrow.
And Al also posed it up with Senator John McCain.
"EXTRA" correspondent A.J. Calloway looked dapper on the carpet.
NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was all smiles on the carpet.
And E! News correspondent Alicia Quarles looked beautiful in a purple Ziad Nakad gown and Alejandro Ingelmo shoes.

The June/July 2014 issue of POINTE Magazine features elite ballerinas Ashley Murphy, Ebony Williams and Misty Copeland in a groundbreaking profile. More inside....
POINTE Magazine (an elite publication in the world of dance) created a groundbreaking cover for their June/July 2014 issue by tapping Ashley Murphy (Dance Theatre of Halem), Ebony Williams (Cedar Lake) and Misty Copeland (American Ballet Theatre).
With the headline "Beyond Role Models", the accompanying article highlights the lack of diversity in the world of elite ballet and offers "straight talk" from the ladies about some of the challenges they've faced as they perfect their craft and climb the ranks. Also, Misty (who we've seen in Italian VOGUE) opens up about her diversity initiative “Project Plié” which she and the American Ballet Theatre have launched to find more black ballerinas.
Congrats to the ladies and check out browngirlsdoballet (on Instagram) to see other Black ballerinas living their dream.
A few days ago, ABC News' Dan Harris did a wonderful profile on Misty Copeland and her rise through the ranks in the elite world of ballet. Enjoy...

Seemingly unfazed by the RHOA reunion brawl, "RHOA" star Porsha Williams (wearing a dress by Just Dramatik) put her music first and hit NYC over the weekend for her first live performance of her single "Flatline."
The Naked Hair spokeswoman took the stage for a sold-out show at NYC hotspot El Morocco where she sang a special dance remix of the ballad.
Mind you....this was Porsha's FIRST live performance (not counting Kandi Burruss' stage play "A Mother's Love") so we will definitely give her an "A" for effort. She looked amazing and the crowd was very happy to see her. At the end of the song, she showed the crowd why BRAVO voted her the "Best Twerk" with an impromptu twerk session.
Porsha also announced that the "Flatline" video with debut on VEVO later today and you can catch her one-on-one with Andy Cohen following the third installemnt of the RHOA Reunion tonight at 7/8CT on BRAVO.
