While Donald Trump continues to struggle to compile a star-studded guest list for his upcoming inauguration on January 20, Barack Obama’s farewell bash boasted a slew of celebrity attendees.
On Friday night, the President and First Lady hosted their final soirée in the White House and invited all their famous friends to join the festivities. Among those reported to be at the high-profile affair were such A-listers as John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Beyoncé and Jay Z, Solange Knowles (who also performed), Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Lena Dunham, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tom Hanks, George and Amal Clooney, and many, many more.

While photos were not allowed inside, several guests posted photos to their social media accounts to mark the special occasion before turning over their phones to Secret Service.

Blacks in the White House


Last night I got to speak without President Obama and thank him for everything he's done, specifically for LGBT Americans. He told me it was one of the things he was most proud of. I told him we will love and appreciate him forever. He told me there's a lot of work we still need to do. Setting aside for a moment the sadness and anger I feel about the next administration, this was one of the greatest moments and nights of my life. When we walked into the White House last night, the first photograph on the wall was a picture of the White House lit up with the colors of the gay pride flag. Isn't that extraordinary? I'm so glad I had a chance to thank this exceptional man and his team and so grateful that he will still be around to help guide the way. More work to be done indeed and I won't soon forget dancing with the Obamas in the White House while @questlove spins next to a portrait of Mary Todd Lincoln.
