Despite large ceremonies being canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event went ahead. However, it took place on a smaller scale than would usually be the case, with participants who were not wearing masks maintaining requisite social distancing protocol.

The first lady is fond of a white coat and has worn variants on two occasions already this year. In February, she teamed a white swing coat with Dior combat boots following a state visit to India. In the same month, she also wore a white belted coat by Gucci to attend the Governers’ Spouses luncheon at The White House.
