White House Correspondence Dinner DC-Approved Gowns!
The White House Correspondence Dinner (WHCD) is one of the DC’s biggest and most glamorous events. For this occasion everyone goes all out to find the perfect gown. This event is at the intersection of politics and fashion so finding the balance of glamorous yet conservative is mandatory.
We took over Saks Fifth Avenue’s Fifth Avenue Club, the exclusive personal shopping inner sanctuary of Saks, to showcase our favorite WHCD approved gowns!
Saks Fifth Avenue has linked with ABC’s “Scandal” to try to win style points with some of the show’s estimated 10 million weekly viewers.
To celebrate the political drama’s Oct. 3 premiere, the show’s star Kerry Washington, creator Shonda Rhimes and costume designer Lyn Paolo will meet-and-greet shoppers at the flagship on Oct. 2. Out on Fifth Avenue, fans will find “Scandal”-inspired window displays curated by the Emmy-nominated actress, who plays Washington insider Olivia Pope, and Paolo. None of Washington’s actual costumes will be on view, but there will be pieces from her character’s favorite designers, such as Giorgio Armani, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors and Carolina Herrera. There will also be such popular Pope-isms as “It’s handled” printed in the windows. A Mercedes-Benz (similar to the ones used in the show) also will be featured in one of the windows. For More
