Standing beside the president-elect, her husband Joe Biden, Dr. Biden paid homage to several first ladies that came before her. She wore a black asymmetrical Oscar de la Renta dress with embroidered flowers and a matching black mask. De la Renta designed Jackie Kennedy’s iconic peach gown that she wore on a state visit to India. He also designed both Hillary Clinton and Nancy Reagan’s inaugural ball gowns. The look was topped off with a simple black mask.
While she didn’t have a chance to speak at the event, her presence spoke volumes. During his speech, President-elect Biden told the crowd, “as I’ve said many times before, I’m Jill’s husband,” before touching on how important she is to his life and career.
