Guest arrivals began at 6:38 p.m.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) pointed to his footwear and noted to reporters he was wearing special shoes this evening. He quipped that "for tonight only, I pronounce my name 'Canoli,' not 'Connolly.'"

Actor John Turturro weighed in on the 2016 race, saying, "I hope Hillary wins...by a large margin."

Celebrity chef Rachael Ray said she tore her dress on the steps while entering the White House and laughed that she should probably just sport sneakers from now on. When asked which designer she was wearing, she replied, "I don't know, but I just ripped it!"

Ali Wentworth said it was "bittersweet" to be attending her first state dinner, and, she said, likely the last one for the Obamas. She said her purple gown was designed by J. Mendel. When asked which designer her husband was wearing, she yelled the question across the room to her spouse, ABC News' George Stephanopoulos, who had breezed past the press line. After he didn't answer her, she told reporters, "Baby Gap, probably."

Jerry Seinfeld arrived arm-in-arm with wife Jessica. After a reporter inquired about what a Donald Trump-hosted state dinner might be like, Seinfeld smiled and said after pausing, "Gee, I don't know."

More arrivals to come...
