Joining the Obamas and the evening's guests of honor -- Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and wife Agnese Landini -- were a cavalcade of stars, who all dressed to the nines for the exclusive, black tie affair.

News anchors George Stephanopoulos and his wife, Alexandra Wentworth, as well as Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd and his wife, Kristian, also turned out for the night's regal festivities.



TV chef and talk show host Rachael Ray looked striking in a beautiful, flower-print gown while her husband, John Cusimano, rocked an awesome black-on-black tuxedo.


When it came to recording artists, there was no shortage of huge stars who came to celebrate the Obamas' final state dinner, including pop superstar Gwen Stefani, who performed during the dinner, and her country crooner paramour, Blake Shelton.

Five-time GRAMMY-winner James Taylor was also in attendance, along with his wife of 15 years, Kim.


Best-selling Blonde artist Frank Ocean also turned out for the event, alongside his mom, Katonya Breaux.


However, Ocean wasn't the only rapper to bring their parent as their plus one. Chance the Rapper came with his father, Ken Williams-Bennett, who actually used to work for President Obama when he was a senator, and currently serves as the deputy chief of staff to Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, Obama's former chief of staff.
