On Wednesday, the crème de la crème of the fashion industry brought their fab to the White House for the first-ever “Fashion Education Workshop.” More than 150 high school and university students got to learn about the business from fashion’s bold faced names and FLOTUS favorites like Vogue editor Anna Wintour and designers Jason Wu, Diane Von Furstenberg and Zac Posen.

Didn’t get an invite? Don’t worry, we scoured the fashion elites’ Instagram accounts so you wouldn’t miss out completely (green doesn’t look good on everyone):

On their way to Washington on Tuesday, jewelry designer Alexis Bittar posted this selfie with style expert Mary Alice Stephenson and Charles Elliot Harbison, founder of HARBISON. Who knew the Acela was “chic”?

Style expert Lilliana Vazquez, who calls herself “the Chief Cheap Chica,” shared this group photo. No trip to the White House is complete without one.

Spanx founder Sara Blakely couldn’t resist striking a pose on the White House red carpet (the hue perfectly matches Spanx’s signature color).
