The 2021 Tokyo Olympics have finally come around and Dr. Jill Biden is turning heads with her latest controversial outfit! Scroll on to check it out…
First Lady Dr. Jill Biden is in Tokyo for the opening ceremonies, representing the United States…
Last month, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that the president would not attend the Olympics but instead send a U.S. delegation, meaning Dr. Biden will be attending the Tokyo Olympics without her husband.
Dr. Biden has brought her controversial fashion sense with her too.
Her outfit at the 2021 Olympics Opening Ceremony left people speechless…
Now, Dr. Biden is known for her often-sophisticated style…
But not everyone has been impressed with her past get-ups.
One piece of clothing that caused quite a lot of controversy was her fishnet stockings…
People felt the need to make sexist comments, and it started an outright war on social media.
The Twitter debate was huge…
People’s comments were brutal. And her latest ensemble has once again divided the internet.
It all started when Dr. Biden arrived back in Washington, following a trip to California…
She was pictured wearing a black jacket, black “mini” skirt, black heeled boots, and tights that caused an uproar.
It wasn’t long before online critics shared their opinions…
Some called her look “trashy” and “embarrassing,” and accused her of being “too old” for the outfit.
“I think Jill B has the holidays confused. She must think it’s Halloween. What is she 70? Either way she’s much too old for fishnets & stilleto booties,” one person wrote.
“Madonna called and wants her trashy look back, Doc,” another Twitter user added.
A lot of users compared her to Madonna, with one writing: “Good Lord, she looks like Madonna’s grandmother.”
One joked that she looked as though she had been shopping at Forever 21…
Writing: “Hey Jill Biden. It’s not called Forever61 for a reason. Forever21 needs a cut off date!!”
However, a lot of Twitter users came rushing to her defense…
“I hope Jill Biden is ordering about 30 more pairs of those patterned tights.”
“Listen, if I was Jill Biden’s age and looked even 50% as good as Jill Biden does, I wouldn’t just wear fishnet tights, I’d wear an entire fishnet bodysuit and enter every room extended leg first and purring “hello, gentlemen” regardless of who was in it.”
“Patterned tights are not the same thing as fishnets.
I will not be taking questions.”
“So grown grown women can’t wear patterned tights anymore LMFAO #JillBiden I’m screaming. We have more important things to worry about and that narrative is SEXISM.”
“Dr. Jill Biden’s tights were NOT FISHNETS. Also, they were quite cute, and she rocked them.”
“I’ve two words for anyone making negative comments about FLOTUS Dr Jill Biden wearing a short skirt, patterned tights & boots:
“Criticizing Jill Biden’s tights while saying not a word about Melania Trump’s ubiquitous nude photo shoots:
“Conservative hypocrisy at its finest.”
“Defending Jill Biden’s tights by trashing Melania’s nudes ain’t it, y’all.
“Let women do what they want with their bodies.”
“Get a GRIP, MAGA! Patterned hosiery / tights are NOT fishnets and have never had the “associations” fishnets have. And since all of you seemed to have decided Melania’s days of modeling with no clothes was just fine, you have no business criticizing Dr. Biden’s clothing choices.”
“@umichvoter Jill Biden’s fishnet tights.”
“I personally don’t think Jill Biden’s tights were to young for her and she looked beautiful. I love fashion and believe it has no age limit If you love an outfit and want to wear it do it. Shh not my daughter though who like to wear mini shorts.”
Many people blasted her conservative critics…
Comparing the backlash to the outrage over Barack Obama’s tan suit in 2014, and sleeveless dresses worn by Michelle Obama.
One person said: “Jill Biden wore patterned tights (not fishnets, BTW) & conservatives lose their minds. Ivanka wears them all the time and they consider her a paragon of style. And let’s not even get started on what Melania does – or doesn’t wear. This is Jill’s tan suit moment.”
“Michelle Obama upset them in a sleeveless sheath dress and Barack Obama upset them in a tan suit,” another wrote. “So now they upset about Jill Biden and her cute ensemble with her patterned tights and ankle boots. She looked very chic.”
And now, everyone’s responding to her latest outfit that she debuted at the Olympic games…
Dr. Biden’s office has not once commented on the First Lady’s fashion choices or spoke about the designers she chooses to wear.
They are doing this as a way of modernizing the First Lady position, to be more than just a fashion statement.
But that hasn’t stopped people from commenting on what she wears.
Dr. Biden has an opportunity to influence what other women choose to wear…
And the 2021 Olympics Opening Ceremony was exactly that moment.
As this was her first solo international trip, her outfit was the central focus…
That’s a lot of pressure to put on one dress!
The designer is Brandon Maxwell, which is not an unusual choice for Dr. Biden.
She paired her black heels with a clutch and topped it off with a triple strand of pearls…
Dr. Biden often recycles her wardrobe and doesn’t change between events.
And everyone has shared their opinions on her look, good and bad.
But not everyone liked her ensemble…
Check out the look for yourself…
We think she’s killing it!
