2009 White House Correspondents Dinner: Fab or Drab?

Everyone's favorite President and First Lady attended the White House Correspondents Dinner over the weekend, and Black glamour was out in full force! Let's see who was Fab, and who was Drab!

FAB!

Kerry Washington, my favorite of the night, gave a smokey eye and nude-pink lip. One of my fave makeup looks!

And of course, First Lady Michelle Obama looked bronzed and gorgeous. She finished her glam look with super glossy hair, and a ladylike pale-pink manicure (not to mention that sick necklace).

I think Wanda Sykes looked great. Her plum eye makeup and mauve lip gloss really complimented her skintone and gave her a bit more glamour than we usually see from her.

DRAB...

I love Tyra dearly, but the wig with baby hairs is killing me. Plus, she could have done more with her eye makeup, as it made her look a little sickly. I have to go with Drab.

I deeply respect Gwen Ifill's work in the political arena, but everything about this look was drab. She could have benefited from a lip color that was a tad brighter and glossier, and a little foundation and powder to even her skin tone.
Also, matching your lipstick and eyeshadow is generally not a good idea. A neutral shade and some false lashes would have really softened her look, and defined her eyes. Next time, Ms. Ifill!


So, do you agree? Who was Fab and who was Drab?
