White House Mexico Dinner: Beyonce, the non-spouse dates, and other leftovers

Hey, what about Beyoncé? Press were shooed out of the White House before the surprise entertainer took the stage at Wednesday's state dinner. But guests tell us the superstar wore sparkly, slinky, strapless silver, a fan blowing her hair.

She opened with "At Last" (her Obama inaugural song), then did a half-hour of hits (leading the audience to chant "to the left, to the left" during "Irreplaceable," then singing a verse in Spanish). A laser show, too, like a real concert! Husband Jay-Z was in the house, though not on the guest list. (Here's the list of VIPs invited to the post-dinner show.)

In other state dinner leftovers: Who needs a Significant Other? Many VIP guests chose unconventional plus-ones: Instead of husband Tony Parker, Eva Longoria Parker showed up with activist pal David Figueroa of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund; Bill Richardson came with sister Vesta; gold medalist Shani Davis brought his skating coach Jae Su Chun; and Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez brought teammate D'Brickashaw Ferguson.

Comments

finally we get a photo of Beyonce . . . . I was anxious to see how she was going to show off her precious bosom . . . . another broad, Giselle Fernandez, whose picture was shown on the Post, gave everyone a thrill with her gown . . . . I thought that they would come flopping out at any moment . . . . . maybe they did and I missed it.
