The Swearing-in Ceremony Of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris gets the nod from Fashion Police

- By P R Gayathri
America has fallen into new hands and the swearing-in ceremony of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris was the much-awaited event to happen in Washington, D.C., ever since the pandemic broke out. Even before the words were shared it’s the clothes that spoke to us and must say, each one present, nailed their opportunity in displaying fashion diplomacy. To honor millions of lives lost to Covid-19 in America, Jill Biden, and Vice President Harris opted for ensembles by emerging American designers encouraging the hard-hit industry to find their lost voice again. Let’s take a closer look at elegant style statements made by the Biden administration.

Joe Biden and Jill Biden

Dr. Biden was seen in a custom-made blue suit by American designer Ralph Lauren.

He had a mini-American flag badge on his overcoat. We totally dig in the first lady, Jill Biden’s woolen blue ensemble. Dressed by environment-conscious -fashion label Markarian in ocean blue wool tweed fabric. The color signified the aura of trust, loyalty, and confidence. The hand-embroidering work with Swarovski pearls and crystals in a floral motif on the neckline and velvet trim added the elegance and royalty in her look.

She threw an entire monochromatic look with her mask to heels in blue.

Kamala Harris and Doug Emhoff

While history’s first second gentleman was seen in a tailored classic suit by Ralph Lauren, the much-loved vice president Kamala Harris’s purple coat and dress by Christopher John Rogers and Sergio Hudson, upcoming black designer. She donned the dress like a boss and matched her black mask to shoes. Intentionally or not, shades of violet became the color of the ceremony with Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton gracing the ceremony in similar hues.

The former first lady was a vision to behold in her purple Sergio Hudson alpaca sweater and pants with a cashmere coat. The signature Sergio Hudson belt from his FW20 collection accentuated her waist giving a feminine and elegant touch to it that’s not too dainty. Hillary Clinton graced this historic occasion wearing a bright purple pantsuit with a matching ruffled scarf by Ralph Lauren under a maroon overcoat. Their choice of colors indirectly spoke to the political spectrum to come together and move forward.

Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez

High-profile attendees didn’t keep their fashion game low either. Lady Gaga, who performed the National Anthem, adorned a custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture look designed by Daniel Roseberry. As usual, she rocked the outfit in style. With a gilded dove of peace brooch in her navy, cashmere fitted jacket, it was the skirt in washed red silk faille that added drama to the entire outfit.

Looking flawless at 50, J.Lo wore a full Chanel ensemble, in all suffragette white. She accessorized her look with Chanel pearl earrings, pearl bracelets, and pearl belts and we didn’t miss noticing her colossal emerald-cut engagement ring glistening under the bright D.C. sun.


As Lady Gaga told how her ensemble is a love letter to America; the group of people who joined in the ceremony made a statement with their looks and with a notion to the uplift American fashion industry. Symbolic accessories worn by the lawmakers and speakers in attendance were not just a charm to the eyes but a source of life and recognition to designers who know what they are doing.
