US President Joe Biden held an official dinner the night before last, in honor of French President Emmanuel Macron, and invited a group of celebrities, members of Congress and business giants.

The banquet culminated in a visit aimed at showing Biden's commitment to Washington's oldest ally, despite the two countries' disagreement over how to deal with the Russian war in Ukraine, support for American products, and other issues.

The guest list included actress Jennifer Garner and Violet, her daughter with Ben Affleck, singer John Legend, model Chrissy Teigen, Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, and director Baz Luhrmann.

These celebrities joined members of the Biden government, members of Congress and business leaders.

On Thursday night, Biden and his wife, Jill, received Macron and his wife, Brigitte, at the White House for dinner after diplomatic meetings held earlier the same day.

Less than two weeks after the marriage of Biden's granddaughter in the gardens of the White House, the event brought a touch of excitement to the presidential residence, whose social events hosted a decline due to the precautionary measures in the wake of the "Covid-19" pandemic.

Macron and his wife arrived in Washington on Tuesday, on his second official visit to the United States since assuming the presidency of his country in 2017.

Biden (80 years old) and Macron (44 years old) had previously held many meetings in international gatherings, but this was the longest period they spent together.

 Less than two weeks after the wedding of Biden's granddaughter on the White House lawns, the event brought a touch of excitement to the presidential residence.
