China State Dinner PHOTOS: Arrivals, Herbie Hancock, And Who Was Best-Dressed? (VIDEO, PICTURES, POLL)

Now that the big question has been answered (Michelle Obama is wearing Alexander McQueen), we can move on to the other details of Wednesday night's state dinner. Like who else attended.

Thanks to the guest list released in the afternoon, we had an idea. Below is a slideshow of who made it through security ... and what they wore.

According to pool reports, there was a little Q&A with attendees:

-Barbra Streisand, when asked why she was there: "I worked in a Chinese restaurant."
-Anna Wintour said she wanted to ask President Hu to "invest money in Chinese fashion."
-Jackie Chan on why he brought a big camera: "I just want to take some photo."

As for what they ate, we know it was "quintessentially American": lobster, steak, apple pie and ice cream. Read all the state dinner menu details here.

After dinner, about 300 guests--Sasha and Malia included--took in a performance by jazz great Herbie Hancock.
