The guest list for the Chinese state dinner has been released by the White House! The White House state dinner will be for Chinese President Hu Jintao. Among the politicians were some movie stars and some celebrities in their own right. The dinner occurred on Wednesday, Jan. 20th.
According to the White House, it was a "quintessentially American" state dinner which included meat, potatoes, apple pie and ice cream! President Obama and Michelle Obama were dressed to impress when they welcomed Chinese President Hu Jintao. Barack was in a tuxedo and Michelle stunned in a gorgeous orange gown designed by Alexander McQueen which showed off her Â“guns.Â”
