What Nerd Prom? Kendall Jenner Brings Supermodel Style to the WHCD

Updated

Kendall Jenner brought her runway-ready glamor to the annual “nerd prom” in Washington, D.C., when she attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday night in a black Vivienne Westwood gown and 50-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond stud choker.

Jenner, 20, wasn’t the only A-lister at the event, which brings together the political elite alongside some of the nation’s largest media companies and, in recent years, more and more celebrities. This year’s guest list included not just Jenner but also the cast of
Scandal
, Will Smith and others.

Not on the list? Donald Trump, who told The Hill he was invited to the WHCD by “every single group of media available to mankind,” but turned them all down. (He has, however, attended in past years.) Other attendees, meanwhile, said they were most excited for the night’s prom king himself: President Barack Obama.

“I am so excited about Saturday, I mean it will be bittersweet, but we are all so excited to see what [President Barack Obama] says,” Kerry Washington said. “He is a brilliant and hilarious man and we always get to see him be brilliant but we don’t always get to see him be so funny.”
