Outgoing first lady Melania Trump sported an orange-emblazoned Gucci dress after arriving in Palm Beach, Florida, from Washington, DC, with former President Donald Trump. This marked the duo’s last flight on Air Force One as president and first lady.

Her bombastic dress, which costs $3,700, stood in stark contrast to the black Chanel jacket and Dolce & Gabbana dress she wore while leaving the White House.

While they aren’t making as big of a splash as Harris’ pearls on Inauguration Day, at least one notable person is paying tribute to Biden’s signature shades. “I got my Kamala Harris pearls and my Joe Biden aviator sunglasses,” Senator Tammy Duckworth told MSNBC.

Vice President Kamala Harris wore her pearls to accent her double-breasted royal purple coat worn over a matching dress was created by Brooklyn-based designer Christopher John Rogers. Harris, the first Vice President to be female, Black and of South Asian descent, chose to wear an outfit by a Black American designer for her swearing-in at the U.S. Capitol.

Also, Lady Gaga, who belted out the National Anthem at Biden’s inaugural, did not disappoint. She sported a red balloon ball skirt with a huge gold dove of peace on her chest a la the Hunger Games.

Gaga explained the accessory is a dove carrying an olive branch and wrote, “May we all make peace with each other.”
The first lady, Jill Biden, opted for an ocean-blue dress and matching coat for her husband’s inauguration ceremony.

The outfit was designed by Markarian, a New York-based luxury fashion label founded in 2017 by designer Alexandra O’Neil.

Bernie Sanders is trending on Twitter after an image of him sitting alone at the Biden inauguration went viral. The image shows the Vermont senator sitting alone in a folding chair at Wednesday’s inauguration, bundled up and looking bored with his hands tucked in thick wool mittens. The photo quickly became a trending meme, with people posting their own images of Sanders sitting in various places. His wool mittens became a hit, too. However, the Vermont school teacher who made them for Sanders two years ago said sorry, they are all sold out.
