Viola Davis nearly pops out, Rosario Dawson has extreme cleavage at Corres. Dinner

We have just a few more photos from the White House Correspondents Dinner this weekend. We’ve already covered many of the ladies at the event, here are links to our earlier stories. We’re actually only doing the celebrities with the highest name recognition, there were quite a few people who seemed like they had no business being there. (Other than Lohan and Kim K of course.) I’m talking about Glee’s Matthew Morrison and Darren Criss, Elle MacPherson (in a ball gown of course), a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model named Irina Shayk, and an American Idol finalist from last year named Colton Dixon. I should get over it, though, as Kaiser and others are pointing out, that’s the point of this event. It’s not some stodgy insider event, it’s where politics and celebrity meet, and reality stars serve as punch lines. Next year there will probably be some Real Housewives in attendance, and they won’t be crashing it. The White House doesn’t invite these people, the press and media outlets have them as guests, and they want to bring people who will get coverage.

First off is Viola Davis in asymmetric Amsale. It looks like her left boob is about to make an appearance. Viola often has issues containing her girls on the red carpet, so this isn’t as cleavage-heavy as we’ve seen from her her in the past. I actually would love this look if it weren’t for how low it goes on the one side, and that could be a tailoring issue. It’s such a striking gown. Viola went with a wavy wig instead of her natural hair, which she was rocking at the end of this years awards season. Overall it’s a very elegant look. (Just Jared has more photos here.)

Rosario Dawson didn’t have any qualms about bringing out the big guns. Her boobs were pushed up to her neck and barely contained in shiny, very tight green Armani Privé. This is not appropriate for an event at the White House! This is something you wear to an action movie premiere when you want to get the attention of tween boys. So wrong and such a fug, unflattering dress. Even Lohan didn’t try to show this much cleavage.

Compare Rosario to the very lovely and appropriately-dressed Dakota Fanning, 18. There are elements of sexiness to Dakota’s full length sparking Prada dress in that it’s low cut and even has a keyhole cutout above the stomach. Still, it looks demure on her. I think it’s her overall styling as well. Also, we have a photo of Dakota at the event with Steven Spielberg and she just looks thrilled to be there.

Martha Stewart worked some kind of caftan-looking white and gold beaded shirt. It wasn’t cute and it looked like one of her craft projects, but it’s Martha and she can wear whatever she wants. Kim Kardashian enthused about meeting Martha at the event, and told US WeeklyThe highlight of my night was meeting Martha Stewart. She is such an inspiration to me!” Why is Martha an inspiration to Kim? Is it because she actually has marketable skills and contributes something to society? I wouldn’t know how to properly fold sheets without Martha’s step-by-step instructions.

Diane Keaton was in one of her trademark suits, this time a pinstriped fancy-looking one. From far away it didn’t look bad to me, but up close I see that it’s more like a zoot suit. It’s loose and her pants are dragging on the floor. Her look reminds me of this Tom and Jerry episode.

Finally Elizabeth Banks was in red too. The Fashion Patrol notes that she was in Antonio Berardi, and they describe the fabric as “peplum.” I love the clean lines of this dress, which really works on Banks. I wouldn’t dare to wear a dress that flared at the hips like that, but on her it’s gorgeous.

    Rosario’s “girls” are new, she was just taking them out for a test run.

  2. Alexis says:

    Rosario looks stupid.

    • gg says:

      omg, that dress with those bolt-ons looks horrific. There is some optical illusion going on with the satin, making the inside part look like grapefruits and the clothed part sorta looks deflated, like triangles pointing outwards. Very weird.

  3. brin says:

    Is Diane Keaton the new Charlie Chaplin?
    Maybe we should rename her Buster Keaton.

    • Candyland says:

      I just saw a picture of Charlie Chaplin 1st time this weekend. Though heard the name before. It was at an antique store and looked old. Diane Keeton’s outfit looks like his. Minus the mustache. But I like it on her.

    • Trek Girl says:

      Diane Keaton has had this kind of style for a long, long time. It really works on her. I don’t think there are many women in Hollywood that could pull off such looks without looking like they are wearing a costume.

      She definitely has her own sense of style, and I love it.

    • roooster says:

      Is Diane Keaton gay? This style of dressing, the fact she’s never been married, etc make me think so. Plus the fact that her companion seems to be more than just a friend.
      I’m just curious. She’d probably never make an announcement, since her staple role seems to be that of a ‘matron’
      , or ‘mother-Earth figure’, or ‘matriarch’, so such declaration might mess with a public perception of her and her suitability in such roles.
      Either way, I love her and think she is a great actress. And this style REALLY DOES WORK on her. Just maybe lose the hat…

  4. lower-case deb says:

    Dakota Fanning’s cutout looks awkward, it looks like someone took an extreme-Vee front gown and pinned it at chest-height to make it more “occasion appropriate”,
    better with no cutout at all.

  5. Jazzmin says:

    Some of these actresses have no taste in fashion, the mass media/public think that being an actress/celebrity equals smarts/knowledge/fashion sense. Rosario found a great push up bra or awesome implants. Although; I’ve seen her before she does have great breast.

    • Katren says:

      Awesome? I think they look awful! so high and …squeezed. the heinous dress probably does a lot of that though

      • Candyland says:

        One thing they don’t look and that’s real. Flying saucers looking for the mother ship maybe. Real boobies, nope.

    • kiyoshigirl says:

      Those are some of the worst bolt-on implants I have EVER seen! If you think those look great then you must think strippers and porn stars look awesome too?

      • lil says:

        I don’t know why she bothered getting implants. I mean, I remember her in Alexander and she had pretty big jugs. Now she looks stupid.

  6. ladybert62 says:

    Those basketballs’s are gonna pop out and go tumbling on the floor – god awful!

    Dakota looks cute.

    The red dress on whomever is ok.

    The rest are trashy and look stupid including diane keaton.

  7. smartcookie says:

    this must be the event where everyone digs in their closets to find something with a tag still on it and the garbs are smooshed into their carryon case to Washington with no ironing or steaming prior to the event. there’s no way any of these fug outfits would be at an LA premiere

  8. Angel says:

    rosario got two bruce willis inside her dresS!

  9. Jen says:

    Leave Martha alone – she looks cute!

    Leave Diane Keaton alone – she’s an icon! No one else can pull off her signature look, she looks great.

    Viola . . . hot.

    Liz Banks . . . love her, her best accessory is always her great smile.

    Rosario . . . fail. Put those things away.

    Dakota . . . seems lovely, but so boring.

  10. Agnes says:

    love viola’s dress! it wasn’t an event AT the white house, so some boobage was ok… (i’d rather do boobs than martha stewart’s or diane keaton’s outfits – those clothes just been to be burned.)

  11. Enn says:

    What is it with Diane Keaton and the hats and suits? Annie Hall was a long time ago. Plus, it’s boring as hell because she’s done it to death.

    • Trek Girl says:

      Did it ever occur to you that this is her own style and not something she picked up on a movie and never let go of?
      She has been dressing this way for decades; I think it is safe to say that this is the way she likes to dress.

  12. SofiaPetrillo says:

    The frill around the hips on Elizabeth Banks’s dress is called a peplum, its not the fabric. It seems to be a big trend on Hollywood dresses this year.

    • Trek Girl says:

      Oh, now that’s the word of the day lol. I have never heard that word before. I am going to have to find a way to use it today.

    • wallycally says:

      thank you, i was just going to say that. a peplum is a type of construction not a fabric.

  13. lucy2 says:

    I would love Viola’s if it didn’t look like it was going to slip.
    Rosario looks horrible – overdone, tacky and cheap.
    Love Elizabeth Banks. She’s turned into quite the red carpet fashion star.

  14. mia girl says:

    I really love Elizabeth Bank’s style. She’s been killing it on red carpets this year. And she seems to pull it all off with ease and a smile on her face. Love her.

    What is going on with Rosario Dawson!? From head – to boobs – to toe she looks awful.

  15. constant says:

    Oh no, Rosario Dawson… She has been on my list of prettiest human beings alive for long, and now this! What a scary sight.

  16. Candyland says:

    Viola looks smashing. So does Elizabeth Banks. Them and Reese won the beautiful dresses awards. Hands (breasts?) down.

    Finally, someone who makes Lohan look classy. Rosario! Yes, Lohan looks demure and classy next to this Chicken McUglet.

    Maybe Rosario should just wear a dress with target patterns over the boobies just to show them up a little more.

    Sorry Lohan for dissing your dress. This one wins the ugly award for rampant boobage. Yours don’t even come close.

    Don’t know who Diane Keeton is. Don’t even know why I like her outfit. But I do. If she’d shorten the pants some.
    Lovin the hat.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Okay Chicken McUglet nearly made me choke on my ice. That’s a new one on me. Thanks for the chuckles.

  17. Princess Lizabeth says:

    Ugh, these celebrities and their “handlers.” It makes them look like they can’t even walk or function unattended. Case in point, the photo of Diane Keaton. I guess the assistants are just there to help, but it always looks to me like the celebs would be completely unable to do anything were it not for their presence.

    • roooster says:

      Funny, I thought it was Dianne’s girlfriend. She’s way too put together to be just an asistant, plus assistants do not usually walk the carpet, and definitely not hand in hand with the star.

  18. Emma says:

    Elizabeth Banks is really on point when it comes to fashion.

  19. midnightmoon says:

    Rosario seems to have passed her sell-by date. She will show up for the opening of an envelope. The appearance fees must be dwindling b/c she usually looks ok. I’m thinking drugs&alcohol are getting to her. She was once so in demand. And she’s so talented & in her youthful days was so gorgeous. The taste in her mouth that it’s come to this must be bitter ashes. So many of her age (too many to list-most are just Where Are They Now fodder) have disappeared. She is not giving up, having not yet figured out how done she is. This get-up makes me so damn sad. Rosario, at least get back your dignity! Big boobage is not for you!!!

  20. Janet says:

    I love the color on Viola Davis’s dress but what happened to the top? It looked like half the top fell down.

    Rosario Dawson looked like a damn fool. Implants three sizes too big squeezed into a dress three sizes too small and busting out all over.

    Best dressed of the night:
    1) Michelle Obama
    2) Ivanka Trump
    3) Charlize Theron

  21. skuddles says:

    Bet Kim took one look at Rosario and thought “dammit – I knew I shoulda had my over-inflated funbags on display!”

  22. Kosmos says:

    Rosario looks ridiculously out of touch with what would be appropriate to wear or show at this kind of function. She looks embarrassingly over the top. The other pics look great, all the other women look really good. I now have a poor opinion of Rosario….get over yourself, girl.

  23. Camille (The original) says:

    Rosario Dawson obviously got new boobs for Christmas by the looks of things and the way she is showing them off.
    All I think while looking at that photo of her is: so awful, so tacky and why??

  24. ya says:

    That colour looks absolutely spectacular on Viola though…. Amazingly beautiful despite the slightly too low cut on one side.

  25. MB says:

    Colton Dixon was only just eliminated from American Idol maybe a couple of weeks ago. Im in shock that he was invited to this kind of event. For shame!

  26. Amanda G says:

    Well I guess someone had some plastic surgery recently. Rosario looks ridiculous.

  27. Koa says:

    Viola looks STUNNING.
