Jennifer Garner is an actress beloved by many. In her personal life, she is just as bubbly and down-to-earth as many characters she has portrayed on screen over the years.

And while she doesn’t look it, the actress is a mother to three children. Her eldest daughter Violet just turned 17 years old and is a true beauty as she is the spitting image of her A-Lister mom!

The White House state dinner is always a star-studded event and this year was no exception. On the list of invitees was Jennifer Garner, a beloved actress, and female entrepreneur. The actress was allowed to bring with her a plus-one, and her choice of companion surprised everyone!

She brought along her 17-year-old daughter Violet Affleck! The dinner was held to honor French President Emmanuel Macron. And while he was the guest of honor, another person was being celebrated on the occasion as well! It was Violet’s 17th birthday on the day of the dinner! Garner shares Violet with her ex-husband Ben Affleck.


And the birthday girl looked the part, she wore a gorgeous designer black dress with a pattern of a shining black heart. She matched with her mother who wore a similar gorgeous black Ralph Lauren gown. The mother-daughter duo walked into the event with matching smiles and holding hands!

And people could not take their eyes off how similar both women looked. Both in height and stature, as well as smiles! It is uncanny how much young Violet Affleck resembles her movie-star mom! And clearly, Jennifer Garner is very proud of her daughter, as she beamed holding her young girl’s hand while posing for pictures.

Jennifer Garner was not the only person who brought along their child to the event.  Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ plus-one also happened to be her 25-year-old son Charlie Hall, who also dressed to the nines in a gorgeous tux.

Other famous faces present at the event were Batiste, Stephen Colbert, Ariana DeBose, John Legend, and Chrissy Teigen. 

This was President Joe Biden’s first state dinner after he took office.

The event was a huge success but what everyone can’t stop talking about is Jennifer Garner and her daughter Violet Affleck and how much the two look alike!
