The best gowns from the 2014 White House Correspondents Dinner

Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o dazzled in black Oscar de la Renta and Jessica Simpson wowed in a floral Carolina Herrera number. Sofia Vergara played up her curves in a Romona Keveza dress with a metallic bodice, while Freida Pinto looked radiant in a glittering pink gown.
