Who Will U.S. President-Elect Joe Biden Wear In His Inauguration This Thursday?
Our bets are it’s all-American, for sure!
It’s a monumental time for the United States of America as Democratic leader Joe Biden swears in as the newly elected President this January 21, Manila time (Jan 20 at noon U.S. time). Though we are excited for this 180-degree turn of presidency and the changes it will bring forth, as fashion people, we beg to ask a rather important question as well: Who will Joe Biden wear?
WWD reports that, though nothing is confirmed, the incoming president looks into American fashion hallmark Ralph Lauren as his designer of choice. Coming from a very interesting sartorial phase of gilded, elaborate looks from current U.S. President Donald Trump, this new governance will usher back the Obama days of restraint fashion, upfront clean looks—more ready to serve than to impress.
While Joe Biden is hardly any style star (yet), politics is a field often looked into for subliminal fashion cues. No-brainer guesses would point into Biden wearing blue. Will there be hints of red and white? Will he keep it neutral to signify solidarity? This Inauguration Day look can still be telling of a lot things for the United States.
All eyes may be on the 46th U.S. President-to-be but we are not to miss other sartorial surprises that night, too. What will new First Lady of the House-to be Jill Biden wear? Vice President-elect Kamala Harris post-Vogue US cover gets to share the fashion spotlight, too. Lady Gaga will sing the national anthem while Jennifer Lopez is slated to do a musical performance.
This January 21, 1:00am Manila time, the U.S. Inauguration Day, to be held at the once-riotous Capitol grounds, will set the tone for this new era of American and global politics.
