Jennifer Garner and daughter Violet, 17, stunned as they twinned in black dresses for Joe Biden’s State Dinner with French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron. The actress, 50, opted for a classic Ralph Lauren number paired with patent leather platform shoes, while Ben Affleck‘s oldest child went with an ankle length dress with a flared out skirt. December 1st also marks Violet’s 17th birthday.
Violet’s included a shiny black heart print and a criss cross top, which she paired with a bright red shoe. She kept her hair back into an updo for a timeless, ’50s inspired vibe that tied the rest of her look together. Finally, the teen held onto a black handbag and finished the look with clear glasses. Jennifer was also channeling old Hollywood vibes with a curled look. Both were beaming with joy as they walked through a room both the American and French flags en route to be seated.
Of course, the mother-daughter duo also bear a striking resemblance — arguably passing as sisters as Violet gets older! The invitation isn’t entirely a surprise as Jennifer is known for her political associations, including encouraging young Americans to exercise their right to vote by participating in various social media campaigns. In particular, the West Virginia native is known for her advocacy work to bring awareness and assistance underserved rural communities.
