Designer Alexandra O’Neill says seeing Dr. Biden in this outfit was a surprise.

“We’ve been working with her team since December on some options, but we didn’t know it was confirmed she was wearing it,” she said. “I feel very, very humbled to be even just a small part of such a historic moment.”

O’Neill says the color blue was chosen because it signifies trust, stability and confidence.
