The State Dinner at the White House is the last event that you would think about fashion. But the dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande reinforced the notion the fashion mantra, "when in doubt, wear black." Tons of celebrities attended last night's dinner, according to a Feb. 11 report from The Washington Post.

The black-tie event included lots of black tuxes and black gowns. There were a variety of knee-length and floor-length dresses at the event.

First Lady Michelle Obama reportedly wore a light blue Carolina Herrera ball gown. The gown had a voluminous pleated skirt and black lace top to complete her elegant look.

Cosmopolitan's editor-in-chief Joanna Coles attended the event in a black leather dress with sheer panels. She was hoping that her dress wasn't too racy for the glamorous dinner.

Vogue's editor Anna Wintour made an appearance in a black and white silk panel gown. Her gown had a sequin belted waist. She paired her look with a diamond necklace and black rhinestone clutch.

Julia Louis-Dreyfuss also attended the event with her dad, William. She wore a black strapless gown with sheer lace paneling on the side. It looks like Coles wasn't the only one to show up in a sexy black dress.

The State Dinner included a toast from President Barack Obama. It also reportedly had American wines by French natives on the menu.
