Olivia Munn's White House Correspondents' Dinner Look: Boring Or Bling-tastic? (PHOTOS)

They call the White House Correspondents' Dinner "Nerd Prom" for a reason: It's the one night a year where brains and beauty truly collide. And who could better represent that smart-sexy ethos than Olivia Munn?

We're used to seeing the "Newsroom" actress show more skin on the red carpet, so Saturday night's look seemed comparatively conservative. Instead of opting for a crop top or a flash of sideboob, she kept it simple in a black Marchesa dress. Just when we thought we were about to fall asleep, Olivia accessorized with gaudy chain necklaces that almost blinded us to her equally dazzling smile -- almost.

And Olivia certianly did not leave the LOLs at home. She chatted with E! News livestream hosts Marc Malkin and Alicia Quarles about her affinity for day-drinking as a workout booster and joked about alternatives to fitness: "I wish I could lose weight tweeting," she confessed. "I'd tweet so much more."

A girl after our own hearts. While there's no doubt Olivia shouldn't worry about a new workout, we're still debating her red carpet look. What's your take?
