These pics will make you wish you were invited to a dinner honoring the leaders of Nordic nations.

State dinners sound like a stuffy affair, but when you’re Barack and Michelle Obama, you don’t invite anyone who’s less than 100. In honor of the U.S.–Nordic Leaders Summit, the Obamas hosted a slew of wildly talented people who make all of your favorite things, like stunning couple Rick Owens and Michele Lamy, the ever-fabulous actress and social media whiz Tracee Ellis Ross, Scandal co-star Bellamy Young, and Janelle Monae in a stunning black tuxedo with red details.
