Charlize Theron + More Celebs Who Were Fab or Drab at the Correspondents Dinner

Hollywood and the government collided on the red carpet at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner. Lindsay Lohan, Kim Kardashian, Uggie the Dog ( yes!) and more rubbed shoulders with DC's elite.

Bettys, did the White House lose our invite to the "Nerd Prom," AKA the Annual White House Correspondents Dinner? We're only asking because if Lindsay Lohan and a dog could go, why couldn't we? We're as cute (maybe cuter) than Uggie the Dog, and with us, you don't have to worry about anything being "misplaced," if you know what I mean. Rather than sobbing over our monitors, however, we're giving you our list of who looked fab and who looked drab.


Michelle Obama

FLOTUS, looked lovely as usual (face it, she never looks bad) in a gown by Naeem Khan and accessorized with simple gold hoops. Michelle Obama's soft wavy hairstyle accentuated her cheekbones.

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon and her baby bump looked lovely in a simply cut black gown. She wore dangling turquoise earrings for a pop of color.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner

Slap me! I Know! But Kim Kardashian looked stunning in a non-flesh baring green velvet gown and her mom, Kris Jenner's red gown was equally elegant. I guess you can dress them up and take them out after all.

Mary J.Blige

Classy, classy, classy! Mary J. Blige's cocktail frock smartly balances celebrity sexiness and demure DC.

Viola Davis

Viola Davis has put away her head-scatching, way too revealing award show gowns and once again looks regal in this glam red gown.

Charlize Theron

It's kinda weird to use the word "sedate" when describing Charlize Theron, but this gown is sedate…sedately sexy. Sadly. Charlize is one of the few women in the world who could make a garbage bag look couture.

OMG! What were they thinking?

Lindsay Lohan

The gown would be perfect for an award show in Hollywood-that is, if Lilo's ever invite to an A-List award show in the future. For DC, not so much. And Frankly, Lindsay Lohan looks so much older than her years, it hurts.

Alicia Keys

If Alicia Keys were going out to dinner with her husband Swizz Beatz, this mustard colored dress, dark tights and crystal studded pumps would be fin. It's too casual for a big dinner like this-did her stylist get cold feet and think PTA meeting instead?

Malin Akerman

You can't deny that Malin Akerman is gorgeous, but the odd length of this dress makes her look ungainly.

Kate Hudson

Sorry, in this getup Kate Hudson looks almost as old as Betty White. Almost.

Zooey Deschanel

We totes heart Zoey Deschanel here at BettyC. She's super adorkable. However, this dress is so big, she looks like she's swimming in it.

Love it or Hate it: Uggie the dog

uggie the doguggie the dog

Okay,we get it, Uggie's a cute and very talented dog. But is this going overboard? Not only is Uggie penning his memoir, he's on the red carpet and a guest at the Correspondents dinner? What do you think about it-is he so adorab that the pooch can go anywhere or do you think he'll get so swollen by fame that he'll become the doggy version of Lilo?

Tell us: who was your fave, who was your worst and really, really tell us what you think of Uggie on the red carpet.
