At the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Barbara Walters wore the same dress she wore to last Tuesday’s Time 100 Gala. Sign of the times, or sign of a practical woman?

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner attracted a ton of politicians and celebrities including Ashton Kutcher in what NY Mag called a "Sad, floppy bowtie," Tyra Banks who "looked like she couldn’t be bothered to change after work," and even Natalie Portman who wore a recycled a gown from Balenciaga’s Fall 2004 collection.
