The First Lady of the United States chose a jewel-toned coat and dress by the American label for today’s historic ceremony.
Dr. Jill Biden fashion
Jill Biden began Inauguration Day beside her President-elect husband in a turquoise tweed coat with velvet lapels paired with a matching dress and face mask by New York–based designer Markarian. The pair attended a service at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle with congressional leaders.
Biden’s ensemble continues a jewel-toned theme from the First Lady—while highlighting her commitment to supporting young, American designers. Last night, she wore a purple coat tied with a velvet ribbon by Mexican born, New York–based designer Jonathan Cohen, paired with matching gloves and a printed face mask, to a COVID-19 memorial service at the Lincoln Memorial.

It is an incredible honor to dress Dr. Biden today. I am so humbled to be even a small part of American history,” Markarian founder and creative director Alexandra O’Neill tells BAZAAR.com exclusively of dressing Biden for her first appearance as First Lady of the United States.
