Jill Biden attended the Respect for Marriage Act Ceremony at the White House on Tuesday in an all-blue ensemble. For the occasion, which celebrated President Joe Biden signing the marriage equality act into law, she wore a sky blue dress and a matching winter coat.
First Lady Biden wore a wool scoop neck midi-length dress with a long trenchcoat. She coordinated with a pair of shimmering floral statement stud earrings. When it came to shoes, she adorned a pair of beige suede knee-high boots over opaque black tights.
She completed her outfit by wearing a cobalt blue soft-textured scarf around her neck and a pair of shiny black gloves.
The ceremony featured star-studded performers, including Sam Smith and Cyndi Lauper. Smith performed “Stay With Me,” while Lauper sung her hit “True Colors.”
The first lady has showcased standout style moments in recently weeks. To the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony, she wore a dazzling Monique Lhuillier gown that featured intricate floral embroidery over black lace. The annual event honors American artists and creatives. To the first White House State Dinner of the Biden administration, she wore a navy blue off-the-shoulder Oscar de la Renta gown that included a flower-like lace design throughout.
The Respect for Marriage Act provides federal recognition to same-sex marriages and interracial marriages. The bill was proposed out of concern that the Supreme Court would strike down the legal protections for such relationships. President Biden was joined at the ceremony for the Respect for Marriage Act by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Kamala Harris.
