    The FLOTUS' appearance at the joint address to Congress by her spouse, US President Joe Biden, generated quite a buzz on social media after netizens, with many netizens commenting on her garb.

    Jill Biden caused a stir with what she wore for her husband President Biden's speech to the joint session of Congress on Wednesday night.

    Many people pointed out that her navy evening dress by Uruguayan designer Gabriela Hearst, with floral embroidery, sheer overlay, and a matching navy mask looked very similar to the outfit she sported for her hubby's inauguration ceremony, with the colour being the only obvious difference. 

    The First Lady opted for a cream version of the outfit back in January for the event.

    Initially social media applauded her dress as Hearst is known for using recycled material, while fashion writer Mekita Rivas tweeted that the South American is becoming the FLOTUS' go-to designer. 

    ​Hearst clarified that the embroidery on the garment featured the federal flowers of every state and territory in the United States.

    “The Delaware flower is positioned at the heart level of The First Lady, from there, all the other flowers branch out. The pieces were made entirely in New York City,” stated the 44-year-old designer.

    However, not everyone was impressed by Mrs Biden's attire.

    ​While others said too much attention was being paid to her fashion choices.
