We can't confirm that Dr. Jill Biden chose to wear her lemon Oscar de la Renta dress on International Women's Day as a subtle message of support for Meghan Markle, who wore the exact same print for a Spotify event just two weeks earlier. But we also can't deny it.
Markle, whose Oprah interview aired the night before the FLOTUS's IWD appearance, has been receiving public support from friends after she was accused of bullying by her former adviser at Kensington Palace. This also comes as Meghan reveals a lot of personal information about her challenging life experience as a royal. Just like Markle made a statement with the dress she chose to wear for her interview, it's possible Jill selected lemons knowing Meghan is a fan of the pattern, too — perhaps this is her way of applauding the Duchess of Sussex for her bravery and celebrating her strength as a woman, wife, and mother.
Yes, we could very well be reading into the matter at hand, but this wouldn't be the first time Biden has sent a message through her clothing choices (or supported the Oscar de la Renta brand, which is helmed by Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, both talented, emerging designers who are immigrants to the US). After Biden spoke at the 2021 International Women of Courage ceremony, which was carried out virtually from Washington, DC and meant to recognise women in their leadership, we saw her in a matching lemon print mask, another thought-out style move we've seen her make before. Ahead, scroll down to see both Dr. Jill Biden and Meghan Markle in the Oscar de la Renta citrus print, then shop out some inspired designs, if for no other reason than the fact that you really love lemons too.
