Invasion of the Brit Pack: Emma Watson, Michelle Dockery, Helen Mirren, Damian Lewis and Tom Hiddleston attend Barack Obama’s 102nd Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the White House

They represent the best of British talent and have become leading figures in the world of acting.
So it was inevitable that Michelle Dockery would be in the company of fellow thespians Damian Lewis and Tom Hiddleston at the 102nd White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C on Saturday night.
Cosying up for a group snap, the trio were truly at home among the legions of home-grown talent – which included Emma Watson and Helen Mirren – as they prepared for an evening mingling with journalists, fellow celebrities and the President of the United States.
Leading the brigade of glamorous gowns on the night, Michelle,34, was the epitome of elegance in a floor-length dress that still ensured she stood out from the crowd thanks to its vibrant tangerine hue.
While the frock mainly left Michelle’s figure to be imagined, the dress was a little risque as it featured sheer panels of fabric that ran in between her bust and along either side of her decolletage.
She exuded Hollywood glamour as her brunette tresses cascaded in retro waves around her face revealing her stunning $90,000 Tiffany & Co. diamond earrings, though the Downton Abbey actress injected a modern spin on the style by incorporating a metallic silver clutch bag into the look.
Flying the flag, or the Union Jack, for the British men were the acting heavyweights at her side Damian and Tom , both of whom were sharp-suited for the occasion.
Before catching up with Michelle at the Bloomberg & Vanity Fair Cocktail Reception, Damian had made his own way into the presidential dinner, with the Homeland star walking the red carpet without the company of his wife Helen McCrory.
