Jeff Bezos, founder and former CEO of Amazon, and his fiancée Lauren Sanchez, a former news anchor and philanthropist, joined 200 other guests at a state dinner at the White House on Wednesday.

The dinner was hosted by President Joe Biden for Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida to celebrate relations between the two countries.

Other business leaders in attendance included JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, Apple CEO Tim Cook and BlackRock chief Larry Fink, as well as political and entertainment figures such as former President Bill Clinton , Hillary Clinton and actor Robert DeNiro.

Japanese business figures such as SoftBank founder Masayoshi Son and former Mitsubishi chairman Ken Kobayashi were also on the guest list.

Bezos was invited alongside his fiancée Lauren Sanchez. The couple went public with their relationship in 2019, following Bezos’ split from ex-wife MacKenzie Scott.

According to The Washington Postthe event was “full of formality and lacking in subtlety”.

Jill Biden had the White House floor transformed into what she dubbed a “lively spring garden” for the event. Guests were treated to a three-course meal inspired by American and Japanese cuisine.

Business and technology leaders are no strangers to these state events.

Last year, the White House hosted a dinner for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which Tim Cook also attended alongside OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
