The dresses, the dates, the selfies – as per usual, Saturday's White House Correspondents' Association Dinner (a.k.a. nerd prom) gave a whole new meaning to party politics.
As Washington, D.C., rolled out the red carpet for the biggest names in Hollywood (from Julia Louis-Dreyfus to PEOPLE's Most Beautiful Lupita Nyong'o) to mingle with the who's-who of the media and political worlds, there was no shortage of nonpartisan fun.

She commanded more than 65 red carpets from September through March and became the darling of designers everywhere as she effortlessly pulled off Prada to Dior.
But Lupita Nyong'o – newly crowned "It" girl of Hollywood – had only one main goal after taking home the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her first starring film role as the slave Patsey in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave.
"I laid low for a week. And I wore the same outfit every day!" she says with a laugh. "And that felt great."
