How would you describe
the inauguration ceremony of the 46th President of United States?
According to us, the President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s inauguration was unlike any other but what dignified it and earned it a
historic response was its theme: return to normalcy.
Wednesday night was
special in many ways including Biden plans – America got the representatives it deserves capped by
extraordinary performances from the likes of Bon Jovi and John Legend and many
others, and yes, some fireworks!
Joe Biden and Kamala
Harris officially took on the responsibilities with their ever-so-worthy oaths.
America now has a bright future.
Biden and Harris have a
massive responsibility on their shoulders: They have to deal with the health
and economic crisis along with strong opposition from the Right Wing.
Biden wanted to sound
optimistic and give hope to the great American nation, and his intentions were
clearly reflected in his speech.
“This is a great
nation. We’re good people. And [to] overcome the challenges in front of us …
requires us to come together in common love that defines us as Americans.” – He
said in his evening speech.
Without any further
ado, we’ve pulled together 15 striking moments from the Biden-Harris inauguration!
It was like a truck had
run over us when Michelle Obama made her entrance – what a moment it was! From
head-to-toe, she was dressed in plum, and what killer look!
Like always, she chose
a Black designer to arrange the outfit for her. The ensemble comprised of a turtleneck sweater matched with
wide-legged bootcut pants. She topped it with a structured coat of the same
color which magnified her power look. A clear winner!
There were several
performances by some of the most beloved artists. We had Katy Perry, Lady Gaga,
John Legend, Jennifer Lopez, and so many others rejoicing the moments of
Lopez wore a white
Chanel ensemble along with some symbolic pearls while dazzling on stage and
singing “The Land Is Your Land”.
Katy Perry – also
dressed in an all-white costume – delivered a patriotic performance that will
be remembered for years to come! Of course, the show couldn’t be complete
without her power-packed song Fireworks!
Lady Gaga was dressed
in a beautiful navy-blue outfit and she completed the look with braided hairdo
and a dove pin. Twitter called it her “Hunger Games” look – and what a moment!
She sang the national anthem and gave us jolts of patriotic feels and wonder.
Twitter had a good
laugh when Bernie Sanders—dressed in warm winter gear— showed up with a bunch
of files in his hands,giving the rest of the celebrities a run for their money.
He represented the
community who’s in it for the thrifty looks, because wearing branded clothing
at such an auspicious occasion is overrated. Of course, he became a trend on
Twitter and his memes went viral!
Vice President Kamala
Harris went ahead with a meaningful look – and gave a nod to Shirley Chisholm,
who was the first Black woman selected by the congress of the United States.
She wore a royal purple coat created by a Black Brooklyn-based designer,
Christopher John Rogers.
When Lady Gaga showed
up at the inauguration in a Navy-Blue gown and braided hair, the audience was
shocked for a moment. She looked stunning! But it wasn’t just the outfit that
made us feel this way, it was the culmination of everything that reminded us of
The Hunger Games.
She wore a symbolic
golden pin of a dove that had an olive branch. Of course, the comparison was
bound to happen! Honestly, we all wanted to toss up three fingers and mouth “I
volunteer as tribute” to complete the theme!
Bernie love is not finished yet. The man became the
center of attention when he decided to be thrifty and give us a look to
recreate. Vanessa Friedman, a fashion critic, tweeted: “In all the
inauguration fashion news, let us not overlook Senator Bernie Sanders’
When Jennifer Lopez hit the stage and sung her 1999 hit
“Let’s Get Loud”, Twitter chimed along with her. The medley became a trend on
Twitter, and let’s just say that things got really wild really quick.
The attendees of the event followed the social distancing
practices responsibly and greeted one another by tapping elbows or bumping
Remember when a
13-year-old boy ended up stealing the show with his heartwarming video in which
he shared how Biden helped him with his stutter? Well, he came back to voice
his excitement and to celebrate the New America. He did so by reciting a part
of JFK’s inaugural speech.
She is a daughter of an
immigrant and the first Black South-Asian person to enter the office. She gave
a message about inclusivity and addressed the nation on how she will approach
her work from thereon. She will focus on the “American aspiration” aka the
This picture is the
moment that will go down in history! Three Presidents – Barack Obama, George W.
Bush, and Bill Clinton – got together to discuss the importance of peaceful
transfer of power.
America has been
through a lot in the last four years, and it was time to take a break and feel
satisfied that the clown is out of the office. America is now safe and sound,
all thanks to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. So obviously, there were fireworks
Yes, it was Joe Biden
and Kamala Harris’s day – the inauguration –but the
attendees didn’t forget to thank the people who made the event possible. There
was a special mention of the UPS guy and the actual people responsible for the
success of the event!
Finally, the man is out and we’re simply going to end it
