TIME 100 Style: See What Desirée Rogers, Oprah, And Everyone Else Wore (PHOTOS)

You may have heard that first lady Michelle Obama delivered the opening remarks at Tuesday night's TIME 100 dinner while looking pretty chic...or that President Obama's speechwriter Jon Favreau rather adorably attended with his mother.

But the event was packed with other style, movie, business and political stars, 99% of whom wore black and/or white. For instance, White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers and U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice both sent a powerful message in black tuxedo jackets.

See a slideshow of the red carpet and dinner below.
