Jon Favreau Brings Mom As Date To TIME 100 Gala (PHOTOS)

Jon Favreau, best known as runner-up in the Huffington Post's White House Hottest contest, and secondly as President Obama's 27-year-old speechwriter, had a gorgeous gal on his arm at Tuesday night's TIME 100 event: his mother Lillian.

The Favreaus worked the red carpet at the start of the night: Jon was wearing a tux and Lillian looked lovely in a strapless black gown and an elegant blonde bob.

Jon later ate dinner at a table with Lorne Michaels, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, David Lauren (son of Ralph) and Lauren Bush (niece of George W.). He also posed for pictures with designer Stella McCartney.

See the fun unfold below.
