President Obama Hosted A Celebrity Studded Farwell Party

It’s no secret that the Obama’s have a whole host of celebrity friends (and fans). So when it came time to bid farewell to the White House, Obama and Michelle decided to throw a bash that read like a who’s who of Hollywood.

Although guests were forbidden from taking pictures inside the event, many posted up heartfelt snaps before arriving to the party which was reportedly paid for by the Obamas themselves - or stumbling out after, at 4am à la Olivia Wilde. Among those in attendance were John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Kelly Rowland, Usher, Lena Dunham, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep to name only but a few.

Although we are yet to find out any more details, Solange Knowles posted up a snap earlier in the day of her sound check saying, “The sound check of life... Was truly the ultimate, ultimate honor. Can't even put into words. Really. We will miss your excellence, your grace, and the phenomenal legacy you have let us all share.” There is no doubt this was a party that will go down in history.
