UPDATE - For those who were enthusing about the fashions at the inauguration

From post #3:
A better explanation - Pictures of the ladies in their oufits were arranged as a rainbow!

Michelle Obama in magenta, Lady Gaga in red, Amanda Gorman in yellow, Meena Harris (Kamala's niece) in green, Dr. Jill Biden in teal blue, Laura Bush in blue, Vice President Kamala Harris in purple, and ? in pink. They've cut off the pink wearing lady and I don't recognize the half face that is shown.

Most of the outfits are shown in this article: https://www.vanityfair.com/style/2021/01/joe-biden-kamala-harris-inauguration-fashion


The McCall's & Simplicity Group on Facebook has a nice line up of the clothes - in a really nice color array:

Sorry I can't post the image directly here, but it is lovely.

ETA - I just realized that it is a private group so the image may not be available to those not on Facebook and/or in the group. I'm sorry - since that is the case I do not feel comfortable copying the image and posting even if I could.

2. I couldn't access the link, but in the photo that was given to Biden and Harris

showing the inauguration on the Capitol steps, I couldn't help but notice two things, 1) the array of pretty, bright-colored coats dotting the background, and 2) the absolute contrast to the Capitol two weeks earlier. It broke my heart and uplifted me at the same time.

Pelosi's was just a show stopper, in a strong field of contenders. I personally wore teal yesterday, since it was closest to what Jill Biden was wearing, though not quite as bright as Pelosi's choice.

I think that fashion in important - anyone paging through photos of the 40s, 50s, and 60s can see the absolute statement clothes can make - and I am delighted that it seems to be back. Stuck in the house (not to mention in Seattle, where fashion lags behind the rest of the country), I didn't realize how much I had missed spotting the new trends.

7. Pelosi had a beautiful blue coat, and someone had pink, but I don't know who that was either.

Just a whole bunch of power and beauty. I'll be kind and admit Laura Bush into the club, because she also had on a nice looking blue coat.

5. She was gorgeous in it - but she is gorgeous no matter what she wears!

I'm more partial to Dr. Biden's outfit since I prefer blues over purples or reds. Only thing is, I never wear dresses, so I'd have a pants suit.

6. She looked beautiful and that color suits her.

I have to say - and this is partly my taste - I'd lose the buckle. I thought it took away from the line. But, again, I'm not partial to those big buckles and I don't think it was in poor taste. It's just not my taste.
