The Golden Globe winner — who stars as the sinister VP’s equally conniving wife Claire Underwood, in the acclaimed political drama — will celebrate the annual black tie shindig with Capitol File magazine and the Entertainment Software Association. The bash will take place at the private residence of the British Ambassador Peter Westmacott and Lady Westmacott next Friday, the night before the dinner.

According to an invitation, the pre-party will be an “exclusive gathering” that will bring together “global dignitaries, celebrities, elected officials, and bold faced names.” 

The White House Correspondents’ Association dinner will be held May 3 at the Washington Hilton Hotel.
