Jill Biden’s ‘love’ jacket on trip to Britain with US President Joe Biden stands in stark contrast to former first lady Melania Trump’s message of not caring
- The first lady wore a Zadig & Voltaire black jacket with the word ‘love’ on the back as she and the president met British Prime Minister Boris Johnson
- Biden is known for often donning bright pastels or eye-catching patterns for her outings. She is rarely seen without a kitten heel or stiletto boot
“We’re bringing love from America,” she told reporters, explaining her fashion choice.
“This is a global conference and we are trying to bring unity across the globe and I think it’s needed right now, that people feel a sense of unity from all the countries and feel a sense of hope after this year of the pandemic.”
Biden is known for her sartorial choices, often donning bright pastels or eye-catching patterns for her outings on behalf of the Biden administration. She is rarely seen without a kitten heel or stiletto boot, adding height to her petite frame.
And this isn’t the first time she’s sent a direct message with her clothes: during a campaign trip to the US state of Iowa late last year, Biden wore black skinny jeans bearing the word “vote” down each calf.
On Friday, Jill Biden has a public engagement scheduled with Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, whose husband, Prince William, is an heir to the British throne.
Jill Biden said her husband had been “studying for weeks” for the trip and joked that he is “overprepared”.
“Joe loves foreign policy. This is his forte,” she said.
The Bidens are set to meet Queen Elizabeth on June 13 at Windsor Castle, in the English county of Berkshire. The first lady told reporters “that’s an exciting part of the visit for us”.
