Jill Biden has graced the cover of Vogue.
The first lady and educator donned a floral Oscar de la Renta dress alongside Tiffany & Co. earrings on the cover of the upcoming August issue. The cover, published online Tuesday, marked the return of first ladies posing for the fashion magazine after Melania Trump did not participate in a Vogue cover shoot during Donald Trump’s time in office.
Biden was styled by Tonne Goodman and photographed by Annie Leibovitz for the cover.
Biden’s Oscar de la Renta dress is being sold online at Saks Fifth Avenue for $1,614. It was designed by Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, two immigrants who also designed the $5,690 dress Oscar de la Renta dress Biden wore during President Joe Biden’s acceptance speech in November. The late designer had a history of designing clothes for former first ladies, including Jackie Kennedy, Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton.
For her appearance in Vogue, Biden also wore a blouse and skirt by Ralph Lauren. Another snapshot shows her standing next to her husband in a green sweater and skirt from the Michael Kors Collection.
During her interview with Vogue’s Jonathan Van Meter, Biden touched on her relationship to fashion and the attention it garnered over the last several months. She’s made headlines by putting her hair in a scrunchie, stepping out in patterned tights paired with black boots, and wearing a custom ocean-blue dress for her husband’s inauguration.
“It’s kind of surprising, I think, how much commentary is made about what I wear or if I put my hair in a scrunchie. I put my hair up! Or the stocking thing….” Biden told Vogue. “It’s amazing how much people pay attention to every little detail.”
Biden’s press team previously said they would not comment on her fashion ensembles and that the 70-year-old doesn’t have a stylist.
“It’s all her,” Elizabeth Alexander, Biden’s communications director, told Vogue.
Biden added: “I like to choose from a diverse group of designers. When I was planning my Inauguration outfits, that’s one of the things I considered.”
Representatives for Oscar de la Renta did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
