Dr. Biden’s approach to fashion has involved supporting American and international designers. She’s known as a fan of Oscar de la Renta, and she’s worn designs from American brands, including Proenza Schouler and Adam Lippes. In addition to her love of Dolce & Gabbana, she’s also worn other Italian brands, including Valentino and Jimmy Choo. For President Biden’s inauguration, Dr. Biden wore an ocean blue coat and dress set by Markarian, helping catapult the designer to fame.

The National Student Poets Program is presented by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. It is the nation’s highest honor for young poets in grades 10 and 11 creating original work.
