President Barack Obama was officially sworn in on Sunday to serve four more years in the White House accompanied just by First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia.

But today was an altogether more glitzy affair for the inauguration ceremony which saw a slew of celebrities in Washington to watch the public swearing-in ceremony.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z looked quite the dapper couple, while Katy Perry brought along boyfriend John Mayer and Kelly Clarkson and Eva Longoria were also in attendance along with other stars.
