WHCD Party Diary: Tracee Ellis Ross, Laverne Cox, John Legend Make Their Rounds

D.C. was super busy this weekend thanks to the festivities surrounding White House Correspondents Dinner and Broccoli City Festival.

Let’s chat WHCD first. Take a look at who we spied making their rounds at several pre-parties throughout the weekend.

Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross looked flawless in a coral cape gown at the Yahoo News/ABC News WHCD Reception Pre-Party, held inside the Washington Hilton.


She even had some fun in the photo booth with Black-ish costar Anthony Anderson and Black-ish creators.

The day before, Tracee linked up with CBS morning host Gayle King at the Time/People WHCD Reception Pre-Party, held at the St. Regis Hotel.

Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox was also there.


Along with Gina Rodriguez

Across town, R&B singer John Legend helped Politico kick off their WHCD weekend with a performance.

Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder showed up for that party with his wife.
