Not everyone was at the VMAs last night: Kerry Washington, Scarlett Johansson, and Eva Longoria spoke last night prior to Barack Obama's big moment at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC! How does a red-carpet regular dress for a political soiree? Washington wore a Bird dress and Roger Vivier's Belle de Nuit pumps. Johansson dressed it down a little bit, opting for a patriotic American flag T-shirt, and Stella McCartney maroon slacks and blazer, while Longoria went for traditional democratic blue, with a gorgeous Victoria Beckham dress and Christian Louboutin heels. Tell us in the comments, which celebrity endorsement was your fave?

But if you caught any of the DNC's speeches, you'll know that the stand-outs were Michelle and Barack. If you're a fan, try on their hairstyles below and post them to your Facebook wall to show your support:
