Last night's White House State Dinner was full of slayage.  Check out the YBF celebs in attendance inside...

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted the heads of the five Nordic nations for a U.S.-Nordic Leaders Summit yesterday.  So an epic State Dinner was necessary to commemorate the moment.

Tracee Ellis Ross pretty much took our breath away.  The gorgeous "black-ish" leading lady arrived to the White House in this gorgeous white Ashi Studio gown paired with a Halston clutch and killer drop earrings by Vita Fede.  She's always perfect, but this time she was utterly perfect.

She commented how she's serving Lemonade tease mixed with a stately vibe, and we gotta agree.  Stunning.
