What did you do last night?

Evan Spiegel had dinner at the White House with Barack Obama.

The Snapchat CEO attended the Nordic State Dinner on Friday night.

And if you've never heard of the Nordic State Dinner either, then none of us has to feel bad. Apparently it's like the White House Correspondents' Dinner, except without the journalists and the roasts — just famous people. Oh. And the heads of Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland.

Anyway. Back to the famous people. Spiegel attended with his girlfriend, model Miranda Kerr.

You're probably a serious person who doesn't have time to look at pictures of other famous people in evening wear, so you can stop reading now.

For the rest of us: There were a lot of famous people at this dinner!

Will Ferrell was there with his wife, Viveca Paulin.

Janelle Monáe was there with Jidenna Mobisson. The White House guest list doesn't identify him, but it turns out he sings.


David Letterman! And his beard.

Marcus Samuelsson, and his wife Maya Haile.


And Aziz Ansari, with his mom, who also appears on his excellent Netflix show.

Sadly, there don't appear to be pictures of Allison Williams and Recode Media guest Ricky Van Veen. But they were there, too! Here's the full list of attendees.
