The guest list at the Obamas' farewell party Friday night had as much star power as a Hollywood awards ceremony.
Although the White House has been mum about who was slated to attend, many party-goers took to their social media accounts to post photos of themselves heading to the blowout bash, while others were photographed arriving at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Guests were prohibited from bringing their cell phones inside the party.

The party will no doubt be a sad moment for both the President and his wife as well as many of the guests, who have given their open contempt for Donald Trump , will not likely head back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for at least four years.

The Obamas will likely foot the bill for the party themselves, before the President prepares to head to Chicago where on Tuesday he will deliver his farewell address after two terms in office. Meryl Streep is seen arriving to the party .
