State dinner fashion: How VIPs dressed for Korea state dinner (photos)

What do you wear if you’re invited to the White House? We’ve got the photos to show how several VIPs dealt with that dilemma at tonight's state dinner for South Korea. ABC News broadcaster Juju Chang turned out in one-shouldered purple — kind of like Michelle Obama’s dress, huh? The most striking silhouettes were on the performers, who could break from the black-tie mold — the sisters of the Ahn Trio in knee-grazing frocks, Janelle Monáe in trousers (see below).

Here’s a sampling of some of the fashion seen during the state dinner arrivals. And even more state dinner fashion in this photo gallery.
