Dr. Jill Biden brought a pop of color to the White House while celebrating Nowruz — the first day of the Persian New Year. On Monday, the occasion was celebrated with a reception in the East Room, where Biden and President Joe Biden both spoke to those in attendance — including musicians Sahba Motallebi and Rana Mansour.

For the occasion, Biden wore a deep red dress. The first lady’s ensemble featured a short-sleeved silhouette with a knee-length hem, complete with a slip-style base. Her piece was covered in a flower-shaped eyelet pattern, giving it a springtime-worthy spin — while also complementing her longtime penchant for jewel tones and floral accents. Dark tights were layered beneath her outfit with a formal finish.

When it came to footwear, Biden finished her outfit with a set of black Dior slingback pumps. The $990 fabric style — one of Biden’s most-worn pairs — featured a pointed-toe silhouette accented with matching 4-inch inverted “comma” heels. The style was complete with its signature embroidered cotton slingback straps, accented by flat bows printed with “J’Adore Dior” lettering for a whimsically chic statement.

For footwear, Biden’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.
