Russell Wilson takes Ciara to White House State Dinner

Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson attended the Japan State Dinner at the White House on Tuesday. He was turning heads with his date for the evening: Ciara Harris.

The White House released this anecdote from Tuesday's event: "Russell Wilson and singer Ciara walked by, passing the press area, but quickly returned. "I didn't know this was the red carpet," Wilson said with a grin, before the pair posed for photographers. Asked where his grandmother was — who the Seattle Seahawks player brought as his date to Saturday's White House Correspondent's Association dinner in Washington — Wilson said, "She's back in Virginia."

Other attendees to the State Dinner included George Takei and Shonda Rhimes.

Wilson posted a photo of the event an Instagram with the caption: "President Lincoln's China!"
