Jill Biden Pops in Barbiecore Coat & Pumps for First State Visit With Emmanuel & Brigitte Macron at White House

Jill Biden welcomed French President Emmanuel Macron and first lady Brigitte Macron to the White House this morning. The occasion marked the French pair’s first official state visit to Washington under the Biden administration.

The first lady met with the Macrons with her husband, President Joe Biden, on the South Lawn of the White House. For the occasion, she donned a bright pink coat with a buttoned front and midi-length hem, tapping into the current “Barbiecore” trend — where monochrome and bright pink outfits are used to reclaim the traditional femininity seen in its doll namesake in an empowering way. Matching gloves completed her ensemble with an added pop of pink, as well as small drop earrings.

When it came to footwear, Jill opted for her go-to shoe style: pointed-toe pumps. This set featured curved scalloped counters and triangular toes, crafted from smooth suede in a similarly bright pink hue as her outfit — creating a true head-to-toe statement. Thin stiletto heels, likely totaling 3 to 4 inches in height, completed the pair with a formal finish.

This wasn’t Jill’s only sharp ensemble this week. On Wednesday night, the first lady also slipped on a holiday-worthy dark green coat and black scarf while celebrating the lighting of the White House’s 2022 Christmas tree. The occasion was hosted on the Ellipse by LL Cool J, which Biden attended alongside President Biden.

For footwear, Jill’s choices are classic and sharp. The first lady regularly wears versatile heels and boots in nude, black and even embellished tones from Manolo Blahnik, Valentino and Stuart Weitzman. Jewel-toned and metallic pointed-toe pumps are also a go-to for her brighter ensembles, from labels including SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker, Prada and Jimmy Choo. In warmer months, she can also be seen in espadrille wedge sandals by Loeffler Randall.
