Inauguration Day, the Biden family
After an busy Inauguration Day, the Biden family capped off the historic evening at the Lincoln Memorial and at the White House for a virtual event dubbed Celebrating America, a televised concert hosted by Tom Hanks, featuring performances from Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, and more. The music spectacular was a show-stopping stand-in for the inaugural ball, which was canceled due to COVID-19 safety precautions.Alexandra O’Neill, the New York-based talent behind Markarian, said that she was “incredible humbled” to be a small part of a historic moment, as the incoming First Lady of the United States donned a custom-created coat and dress set (and matching silk face mask!) created by the fledgling designer for today’s Inauguration ceremony.
Dr. Biden’s wool, tweed, and velvet coat and chiffon dress in its ocean blue hue and subtly sparkling Swarovski crystal detailing speaks volumes. Known for its trustworthy and stable connotations, blue also manages to have something of a calming and reassuring effect: a tonic for the anxiety-inducing news cycle as of late. As for the twinkling and mesmerizing crystals, we sure could all do with a reminder that lightness and brightness is hopefully on the horizon again.
