First Lady of the United States Jill Biden formally presented the dress and coat ensembles she wore to both the 2021 presidential inauguration day and evening celebrations to the Smithsonian’s First Ladies Collection during a Jan. 25 ceremony at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. Dr. Biden’s presentation of both sets of inaugural attire is a historic first for the exhibit. The two ensembles were immediately placed on display at the center of the museum’s popular “The First Ladies” exhibition. Both ensembles are gifts of the individual designers to the National Museum of American History.
