It’s the last state dinner Obama will host as his second term winds to a close.
“Today is bittersweet for Michelle and I because this marks the final official visit and state dinner of my presidency,” Obama said earlier Tuesday. “But it’s OK. We saved the best for last.”
Guests include fashion designer Giorgio Armani; musicians Chance the Rapper, James Taylor and Frank Ocean; comedian Jerry Seinfeld; media personalities and business leaders; and many Obama administration officials. Gwen Stefani was set to perform at the dinner, while guests will be treated to a meal helmed by celebrity chef Mario Batali.
