WEB DESK: Actress Priyanka Chopra practically burned a hole through the red carpet at Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. The “Quantico” actress ravished in a Zuhair Murad floor length gown, with sequined, ruffled tiers and a plunging neckline.

Every year, the biggest names in media and Hollywood — from Kerry Washington to Ashley Graham — bump elbows with the biggest names in politics, and everyone comes dressed to slay.

Priyanka took to Twitter to share about her meeting with the Obamas.

“Lovely to meet the very funny and charming @barackobama and the beautiful @flotus. Thank you…,” she wrote along with a picture.

The US President looked dapper in a black suit and crisp white shirt which he teamed with a black bow tie, while Michelle looked lovely in an embellished beige gown. “Thank you for a lovely evening. Cannot wait to start working on your girls education program,” Priyanka added.The education programme that

Priyanka alluded to is Michelle’s initiative and is called ‘Let Girls Learn’. It aims to empower 62 million girls worldwide, who at present do not go to school, so that they can get their education. The US President is also a passionate supporter of the cause.
