Ah, prom night.

The dresses, the dates, the selfies – as per usual, Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner (a.k.a. nerd prom) gave a whole new meaning to party politics.

As Washington, D.C., rolled out the red carpet for the biggest names in Hollywood (from Julia Louis-Dreyfus to PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful Lupita Nyong’o) to mingle with the who’s-who of the media and political worlds, there was no shortage of nonpartisan fun. And, thanks to social media, what happens in D.C. doesn’t stay in D.C.
