The annual White House Correspondents' Dinner took place in the US capital over the weekend, and Hollywood's finest made their way to the East Coast to show their support. Prada was a favourite of the night — both Kate Mara and Claire Danes went for beautiful looks from the label. Kerry Washington went graphic in a black and white dress by Wes Gordon, plus we got a peek at FLOTUS Michelle Obama's Monique Lhuillier number. All that and more in today's Fashion Flash.
It's pretty much a given that when Michelle Obama steps out wearing something, it's about to hit the fashion circuit in a big way. That's certainly the case when it comes to the black-and-silver embellished J.Crew belt she wore after her husband Barack's Inauguration on January 21. Cinching in her teen-tiny waist and adding a touch of glam to an otherwise dark and wintery look, it's pretty amazing just how much a great little belt can do. With that in mind, we've decided to do a little shopping for you and here you'll find 10 of the best embellished belts out there. They'll pull you in and add a little flair to any outfit, but best of all, you won't need to take out a loan to afford them. Click through and check them out!

From Michelle Obama's fabulously full fringe, to Nicole Richie's practically perfect lob — we think she took inspiration from the Karlie Kloss-owned "haircut of the year" — there were so many looks that we loved this week. Also taking up residence in our top ten? Jennifer Lopez with her glowing natural beauty, Willa Holland and Rihanna with bold lips, and one perfect ponytail that we can't wait to try.

Katy Perry and John Mayer were also at the Ball and snapped a quick photo with Eric Benet and his daughter. At the swearing-in ceremony, Beyoncé Knowles sang the national anthem — it has since been reported that she lip-synched — but not before she got a quick pic with her mum, Tina. Wilmer Valderrama sat in the audience in front of the US Capitol to watch Obama give his big speech.

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama shared a special first dance to Jennifer Hudson singing "Let's Stay Together" at the Inaugural Ball held at the Walter E Washington Convention Center in Washington DC today. Michelle wore a glamorous red Jason Wu gown for the occasion, which came after the official swearing in ceremony and parade earlier today. Beyoncé Knowles performed the National Anthem at that event, but at the ball Alicia Keys, Brad Paisley and Stevie Wonder took the stage to sing. It's been a busy few days in the US capitol with plenty of celebrities attending inaugural festivities over the weekend and even more famous faces stepping out today.
We're not usually fixated on American politics — but the American inauguration celebrations have popped up onto our style-centric radar. Michelle Obama has actually managed to outdo herself in one fell custom ruby red Jason Wu gown swoop. Yes, the FLOTUS has stayed loyal to the young American designer who was behind her ethereal white Inaugural Ball gown four years ago, and this latest creation is just as stunning. The undeniably adorable image of the Obamas dancing is distracting enough, but we've already set our sights on the chiffon-and-velvet halter-style gown, which doesnt' short on the glamour. To complement the siren hue, she wore Jimmy Choo heels and according to CNN, a custom Kimberly McDonald diamond ring, too. This latest ensemble, albeit the most formal, comes at the end of a long day of epic history-making outfits.Michelle Obama was spotted leaving St. John's Church initially sporting a navy printed Thom Browne coat, black J.Crew pumps and Cathy Waterman diamond stud earrings. While the First Lady later arrived at the Capitol for the swearing-in ceremony wearing the same coat, she punched it up with a seriously embellished J. Crew waist belt, proving her continued prowess in the outfit-revamp department. It also appears she has switched out of her J.Crew pumps and into black suede knee-high boots. To finish, Michelle wore gorgeous berry-hued leather gloves — a fitting Winter accessory that packs as much polish as it does functionality. Stay tuned as we bring you Michelle's always-polished ensembles straight from the second inauguration ceremony. For all of the US first lady's most memorable looks (thus far), click here.
It's no secret President Obama has a lot of celebrities on his side, and for his inauguration festivities, supporters like Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria, and Allison Williams hit the party scene in Washington DC to celebrate the momentous event. Alicia Keys finished up an amazing performance at the inaugural ball wearing a beaded red dress from Michael Kors. From the US Elle magazine and Google soirée to the inaugural hip-hop party, there were plenty of stylish outfits to be admired. Kerry made her rounds wearing a red and black leather and plaid dress by Michael Kors, Eva showed off two enviable looks over the weekend, while Allison stayed chic in a fit-and-flare silhouette. As for today's official swearing-in ceremony, we were floored by Beyoncé's all-out glamour, courtesy of a black embellished Emilio Pucci gown, standout Lorraine Schwartz 80 carat emerald earrings and matching 50 carat ring. Check the slideshow to see which celebrities stepped out (stylishly) to celebrate Obama's big day . . .
It has been a busy inauguration weekend for Michelle Obama . . . and her brand-new bangs. Michelle debuted the new cut on her birthday via the new FLOTUS Twitter account. Everyone has had something to say about the trim, even her husband. "I love Michelle Obama," the president said. "And to address the most significant event of this weekend: I love her bangs. She looks good — she always looks good." While the first lady may be the newest member of the blunt-bang club, other notable women seem to be jumping on the fringe trend, including Kate Middleton. Some are anticipating which designers Michelle will be wearing throughout Inauguration Day (or the Tour of the Bangs), but we can't wait to see how many different face-framing styles the FLOTUS will debut.
Beyoncé Knowles was centre stage when she sang the national anthem during this morning's presidential inauguration in Washington DC. Beyoncé had the support of husband Jay-Z at the event and got hugs from President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama after she performed. Beyoncé is just one of the famous faces showing their support in our nation's capitol today, including Katy Perry, John Mayer and Eva Longoria. Many of the stars have been in DC all weekend participating in the inauguration festivities including the National Day of Service as well as the Kids' Inaugural Concert. The fun will continue later today with two official inaugural balls that the president and first lady are expected to attend.
