This past Saturday, President Barack Obama attended the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, a traditionally black tie affair. And while President Obama's tie was certainly black, it was, however, long.
Was this a fashion faux pas? Or was it merely a youthful president exuding some personal style?

UPDATE: After doing a little more research, we've discovered that President Obama was not alone in the long-tie camp. He was, however, in the minority. His companions included:
Secretary Robert Gibbs
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
And the opposing (bow-tie) party was a veritable mix of media men, politicians, and Hollywood stars, such as:
Rev. Al Sharpton
Mayor Bloomberg (who opted for a bright royal blue!)
Matthew Settle, otherwise known as Rufus Humphrey on the hit show Gossip Girl
Jonathan Rhys Meyers
Former Somali Pirate Hostage, Capt. Richard Phillips
