When it came to her attire for the “Make a Difference Day” awards luncheon in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, Savannah Guthrie was less than prepared.
The Today coanchor had a slight case of “pregnancy brain” and forgot her change of clothes when she and castmates Matt Lauer and Jenna Bush Hager flew into town to attend the fancy affair honoring community volunteers. “I was in my maternity jeans!” the mom-to-be confided to PEOPLE.
So the trio, whose own make-a-difference project will be to build a playground for under-privileged children in Newark, N.J., made a quick stop at Neiman Marcus. How quick? “Sixteen minutes, 13 seconds,” said Lauer, who timed it on his iPhone.
