— -- Many showed up to mark President Barack Obama's final appearance at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night, which is lovingly referred to as the "nerd prom," including reality star Kendall Jenner, actress Helen Mirren and NBA player Carmelo Anthony.

While they all walked the red carpet inside the Washington Hilton, they also shared plenty of snaps on social media, giving a unique behind-the-scenes look at the glitzy event.

While actress Kerry Washington scored a selfie with Vice President Joe Biden, "The Real" co-host Tamera Mowry and her husband, correspondent Adam Housley, got the rare opportunity to pose for an official picture with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Jared Leto was spotted with author Neil Strauss while NBA player Carmelo Anthony and his wife La La got cutesy during dinner.

Mirren, 70, honored Prince by showing off a new purple "tattoo," featuring the symbol the late singer used as his moniker at one point during his career. Prince died last month at the age of 57.

Across the dinner, Kendall Jenner was seen posing with two other attendees.

The dinner must've gotten a bit boring for "The View" co-host Joy Behar, who was caught playing solitaire on her phone during the festivities.
