First lady Jill Biden brought bold blue style with a classic finish to King Charles III and Queen Camilla’s coronation at Westminster Abbey in London on Saturday. Biden arrived at the event alongside her granddaughter Finnegan Biden.
For the occasion, Dr. Biden donned a regal blue skirt suit. Her ensemble consisted of a structured top and coordinating midi skirt. She complemented the outfit with matching gloves and a small square neutral-colored clutch.
Giving her look a chic touch, Biden added a blue bow to her hair, which was paired on the side and styled straight. As for footwear, Biden slipped into a pair of nude pointed-toe pumps. The timeless silhouette featured a sharp, pointed-toe, high counter at the back and was set on a thin stiletto heel.
Biden’s outfit immediately went viral on social media as some observers claimed it resembled the Ralph Lauren ensemble that Melania Trump wore to former President Donald Trump’s Inaugural Parade in 2017.
Melania’s wardrobe included a cropped turtleneck top that was paired with a coordinating midi dress, gloves and light-blue pumps. At the time, Melania’s look was notably compared to Jackie Kennedy’s coat dress by Cassini, which she also coordinated with long white gloves for John F. Kennedy’s inauguration in 1961.
When it comes to fashion, the first lady’s style is filled with chic and stylish pieces. She has mostly worn midi-length skirts, dresses, tailored silhouettes, collared coats and textured fabrics.
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.
The Coronation Service, held at Westminster Abbey and conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, is a religious and formal ceremony that precedes the King’s Procession. After the service, King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort, will join other members of the Royal family in a parade towards Buckingham Palace.
