Hollywood stars mingled with Washington's biggest movers and shakers in media at The St. Regis Hotel to kick off the fun weekend leading up to this year's "nerd prom" a.k.a. the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. Larry Wilmore will serve as the emcee.
It was date night for many as Scandal's Scott Foley and his wife Marika Dominczyk were spotted chatting it up with The View co-host Candace Cameron Bure and her husband Valeri Bure. The Bures were being very affectionate and Candace ran her fingers through husband Valeri's beard.
Also in attendance were Karlie Kloss, Vivica A. Fox, Michael Kelly, Jaimie Alexander and Today's Tamron Hall and Savannah Guthrie.
