Tuesday, October 18, marked the last state dinner for President Barack Obama and it was definitely a star-studded event.
Both Barack and Michelle Obama were in attendance as they hosted the final state dinner for Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi at The White House last night and it was spectacular. Throughout the night there were many recognizable faces as politicians came from all over to celebrate a night of eating, drinking and live music.
The celebrity presence however, is what we’re still gawking over. There were a LOT of stars in attendance to bid Obama farewell at his last big dinner as the Commander in Chief, including singers, actors and famous athletes.
So who exactly made the cut? Check out all the famous people who showed up to the event below:
The Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi and his wife Agnese Landini posed alongside President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama before the festivities began.
The First Lady looked gorgeous and like a golden goddess in Atelier Versace.
Comedian, Jerry Seinfeld attended the soiree with his wife Jessica Seinfeld and together they looked stunning. We’re kind of obsessed with Jessica’s silver gown — it’s so shiny!
Chance The Rapper left behind his trademark hat for a night with the president. His guest of choice was his father, Kenneth Bennett, which is almost too much cuteness to handle.
Chef Mario Batali might not have walked the red carpet or rather, graced the gigantic halls in The White House for photos, but he did prepare the meal that everyone enjoyed, which is a pretty big deal.
Another singer in attendance was Frank Ocean, who brought his mother, Katonya Breaux, to be by his side — cue the “awws.” While he did dress up for the occasion, we love that he stayed true to himself and rocked checkered Vans with his suit!
The adorable couple of Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani enjoyed each other’s company and chatted up a storm throughout the evening. Check out Shelton’s American Flag pin — so patriotic.
The “Make Me Like You” singer also performed at the event and totally nailed it. Plus, she pulled Shelton up on stage for a duet, which was so sweet.
There was another famous chef in the house as well! Rachel Ray and her husband John Cusimano looked happy as they hung out at The White House and feasted on Chef Batali’s dishes.
Former racing driver Mario Andretti enjoyed the night with his daughter Barbra Andretti-Curto. Hello, emerald dress, we love you.
ABC News Chief Anchor and the Chief Political Correspondent George Stephanopoulos spent the evening with his wife and actress Alexandra Wentworth and they looked perfect. Can we get that floral dress in every color please?
Actor John Turturro and his wife Katherine Borowitz were all smiles as they entered The White House dinner and struck a pose in their matching black ensembles.
