Jill Biden honored teachers from across the country this week with a special event at the White House. Joined by President Joe Biden and Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, the first lady honored the 2021 State and National Teachers of the Year on the South Lawn of the White House on Monday.
Dr. Biden, an educator herself, arrived at the event in an eggplant purple dress that hit just below the knee. At the event, she also took the podium to speak with her fellow teachers as 2020 National Teacher of the Year Tabatha Rosproy and 2021 National Teacher of the Year Juliana Urtubey also got their chances to address the crowd.
When it comes to shoes, the first lady herself has always been a fan of slingback silhouettes, which are known for their ease of wear thanks to straps around the back of the ankle. This week’s pick featured a sharply pointed toe with cutout panels across the side and a uniquely tapered heel design.
When it comes to footwear, beyond her favorite slingbacks, the first lady has a varied taste in shoes. Her go-to brands include Dior, Jimmy Choo and Stuart Weitzman in addition to Prada. She also is known for her love of running and in the past has preferred workout-ready footwear from Swiss running brand On. When it comes to apparel, the first lady’s official style taps a mix of well-known labels like Brandon Maxwell as well as supports smaller American brands like Jonathan Cohen and Markarian to name a few.
