Appearances: White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Rashida attended the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner in Washington last night. She was seated next to Jon Favreau, Obama's head speechwriter.

So pretty!

She also went to a couple of tie-in parties around town.

Vanity Fair: The White House Correspondents Dinner Party
It’s not too often that a roomful of Hollywood celebrities gets overshadowed by a bunch of buttoned-down civil servants, but it happened last night at the Vanity Fair/Bloomberg White House Correspondents Dinner post-party.

Don’t get us wrong: the stars of film, music, and fashion—Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Natalie Portman, James Franco, Glenn Close, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Owen Wilson, Claire Danes, Mike Myers,
Rashida Jones, Elizabeth Banks, Kerry Washington, Jason Wu, Jon Hamm, Eva Longoria, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Amy Poehler, Jon Bon Jovi, Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick, Ludacris, Denis Leary, Donatella Versace, and more—were in fine form.

The Examiner: Parties before the party’s “First Amendment” party at the member-only club L2 in Georgetown.

Further proof that Hollywood and Obama aides are a natural fit was Jon Favreau and
Rashida Jones' night-long interaction. Leaving us question whether they are just good friends or a match made in PoliWood heaven, the Obama speechwriter and the actress arrived together (just as Kevin Bacon was leaving with his daughter) and spent the entire night cozied up a couch.

They held rank as they were joined on and off during the night by actors John Hamm, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Westfeldt...

*Hmm, are they trying to start a rumor? Is Favreau a potential Loverboy?
I googled some pics for y'all and he is pretty cute :)
