First Lady Jill Biden cut a stylish figure in a cherry red dress and a matching mask while watching a virtual inauguration prayer service with her family on Thursday in the State Dining Room at the White House.
The 69-year-old educator and her husband, President Joe Biden, were joined by their daughter Ashley and their grandchildren, as well as Vice President Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff, after celebrating the inauguration the night before.
Mrs. Biden continued to champion American designers in her fit-and-flare dress by Brandon Maxwell, which featured elbow-length sleeves and a hem that hit right below her knees.

While she stood out in red, her husband started his first day on the job in a bipartisan purple tie — a mix of Democrat blue and Republican red.

Ashley Biden, 39, and her husband Howard Krein sat behind her parents, with the First Daughter opting for a sophisticated white silk blouse and black pants.
And while they were undoubtedly up late the night before, some of the Bidens’ grandchildren were also present at the service.
Hunter Biden’s daughter Finnegan sat directly behind her grandmother Jill wearing a short-sleeve black dress featuring a black and white striped collar and a red sequin design at the shoulder.

President Biden’s granddaughters are already poised to become the White House fashionistas to watch following their show-stopping appearance at the inauguration yesterday.
Sisters Naomi, 27, Finnegan, 20, Maisy Biden, 19, and their cousin Natalie have been hailed ‘style icons’ by industry insiders and social media users thanks to their glamorous ensembles.
The young women were the picture of elegance in chic coats as they joined their family to support their ‘pop’ as he was sworn in, before slipping into stylish looks for the evening festivities.
Despite their privileged upbringing, the Biden granddaughters are no strangers to struggle and loss. Naomi, Finnegan, and Maisy have all watched their father Hunter face high-profile scandals, including his drug use, while Natalie and young Hunter lost their father Beau to brain cancer in 2015.
The foursome, who are extremely close, played an active part in President Biden’s campaign and, if last night’s appearance is anything to go by, they could spend more time in the spotlight now that he’s in the White House.
