Jennifer Garner celebrated her firstborn Violet Affleck’s 17th birthday in style. The actress took her daughter to the State dinner at the White House, hosted by President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill.
The event had approximately 400 guests. In addition to Jennifer Garner and Violet, her daughter with Ben Affleck, the Bidens received French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte Macron.
For the occasion, Garner opted for a floor-length black Ralph Lauren gown with sequin details on the sleeve. She paired the dress with Stuart Weitzman shoes and a black handbag.
Violet’s look featured a Carolina Herrera dress with spaghetti straps and heart prints, paired with a black clutch and red stiletto heels.
The actress and teen were seen sweetly holding hands when pictured during the event. It was a rare public appearance by the two. Jennifer and Ben Affleck were married between 2005 and 2018. She is currently dating businessman John Miller. The actor married Jennifer Lopez in August this year – the two had already been engaged in the past, in 2004, but they separated. In 2021 they resumed after he broke up with Ana de Armas and she, with Alex Rodriguez.
