In an interview accompanying her appearance on the cover of Vogue as First Lady, Dr Jill Biden said her husband was “a calmer president” than Donald Trump.
Biden appears on the cover of the August edition – an honor that was denied to Melania Trump, her anger and that of her husband.
For her cover shoot, Biden wears a floral Oscar de la Renta dress. In the accompanying interview, she says “part of the reason Joe was elected” is because “people wanted someone to come and heal this nation, not just from the pandemic, which I did. think Joe did, you know, get shot in everyone’s arms. But also … it’s just a calmer President. It lowers the temperature.
In December 2020, Donald Trump shared a tweet from the far-right Breitbart News which read: “Elite fashion press snobs have kept the most stylish first lady in American history out of magazine covers for four years. consecutive years.
The then president added that his first lady was “the greatest of all time.”
In her interview for Vogue, the first lady said it was “a little surprising” that her fashion choices sparked a conversation.
At the G7 summit in Cornwall earlier this month, she wore a blazer jacket from designers Zadig & Voltaire with “LOVE” written on the back. The slogan was widely assumed to be worn in response to a “I really don’t care, do I?” Jacket that Melania Trump wore controversially in 2018 during a visit to Texas to meet migrant children separated from their parents.
Biden told G7 summit reports his message was simple.
“We bring love to America,” she said. “It’s a world conference [and] we are trying to bring unity to the world. I think there is a need right now, for people to feel a sense of oneness from all countries and to feel a sense of hope after this year of pandemic. “
During the election, Biden wore Stuart Weitzman boots with “Vote” written on them. She is generally known for moving away from well-known brands in favor of industry favorites like Brandon Maxwell, Gabriela Hearst and Jonathan Cohen. She told Vogue it was intentional.
“I like to choose from a diverse group of designers,” she said. “When I was making inauguration outfits, that’s one of the things I took into account. “
On inauguration day in January, Biden wore a turquoise coat, dress and gloves from a lesser-known brand, Markarian, a move widely seen as aimed at drawing attention to the economic crisis in the clothing industry. fashion.
Biden told Vogue she doesn’t work with a stylist, an unusual choice for such an important position.
The editor of an Instagram page dedicated to her style – Dr Jill Biden Fashion – believes it sends a positive public message about sustainable fashion.
” I think [this] is really great, ”says the editor. ” [Biden] Sometimes buys from designer brands (either ready-to-wear or bespoke pieces) which means the clothes are expensive but she wears them a lot and she wears them for years. I love that she doesn’t launch a new outfit for every event because I think it wouldn’t be nice during a pandemic where people are in trouble. “
