The first female vice president chose to highlight two Black American designers, Christopher John Rogers and Sergio Hudson, with her monochromatic fashion. Rogers’ fashions have previously been worn by famous faces like Zendaya and Michelle Obama, while Hudson has dressed Beyoncé and Amal Clooney. Many considered Vice President Harris’ all-purple look a nod to Shirley Chrisholm, the first African-American woman to run for president.

The new first lady wore a powder blue tweed coat, complete with a matching face mask. Her ensemble was designed by Alexandra O’Neill from the label Markarian, who said in a press release that she is “incredibly humbled to be a small part of such a historic moment” The release also elaborated on the garment’s design, adding, “The color blue was chosen for the pieces to signify trust, confidence, and stability. The look was carefully crafted by a small team in the heart of New York City’s Garment Center and hand finished by O’Neill in her West Village studio.”
