Julia Louis-Dreyfus enjoyed a special mother-son date night with Charlie Hall this week.

The Veep star, 61, and her 25-year-old son attended the State dinner in Washington D.C., hosted by President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, on Thursday.

The Bidens welcomed French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte Macron, for the first State dinner of the administration. The actress and her younger son were two of 400 VIPs who attended the event.

For their evening out, the Seinfeld actress looked chic in a floor-length, black velour gown which she paired with gold accessories and a matching clutch. Charlie, who currently stars in season 2 of HBO Max's hit series The Sex Lives of College Girls, kept it classic in a black tuxedo and bowtie.

In sweet photos from the night, Louis-Dreyfus and her son smiled and held hands as they entered the event.
