Dr. Jill Biden was glamorously dressed for a National Governors Association dinner in Mount Vernon, Va., with President Joe Biden this weekend.
The first lady left the White House in a pale purple Ralph Lauren dress. Although most of the garment was not visible, the style featured a knee-length skirt and allover sequins. The shimmering style was worn under a black HiSO coat and paired with lavender leather gloves for a refined touch. Biden’s look was complete with a light purple floral face mask, Loeffler Randall leather handbag and dangle earrings.
For shoes, Biden continued his chic streak in one of his favorite shoes: Dior’s J’Adior pumps. The $990 style featured pointed toes and 4-inch stiletto heels in black technical fabric. Their most stylish statement came from the white cotton ribbon back straps, embroidered with “J’ADIOR” lettering and accented with bows. Biden has worn the pair numerous times, from her husband’s campaign trail to Medal of Honor ceremonies.
Slingback heels like Biden’s are a versatile wardrobe staple all year round. The pair’s longevity comes from its pointed silhouette, as well as sleek, supportive straps. Most pairs feature stiletto heels, like new designs from Miu Miu, Gianvito Rossi and Jennifer Chamandi. In addition to Biden, stars like Rihanna, Chiara Ferragni and Hailey Bieber have worn Prada, The Attico and Saint Laurent pumps in recent weeks.
When it comes to shoes, Biden’s choices are classic and chic. The first lady regularly wears versatile pointed-toe pumps in nude and black tones from brands like Valentino and Stuart Weitzman. Color-coordinated heels are also a staple for her brighter ensembles, from brands like Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik. During the warmer months, she can also be seen in espadrille wedge sandals by Loeffler Randall.
