After former President Donald Trump skipped hosting the Kennedy Center Honors during his four years at the White House, POTUS Joe Biden brought the presidential tradition back with celebrated artists including Bette Midler, Joni Mitchell, and Lorne Michaels on Sunday, January 5, as part of the event. However, it was Vice President Kamala Harris' outfit for the occasion that made the greatest buzz on social media. 

Apart from Biden and Harris, the event was attended by First Lady Jill Biden, the Second Gentleman, Doug Emhoff, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. Before the event was underway, Harris and Emhoff posed for a couple's picture in front of the White House Christmas tree, which the Second Gentleman posted on Twitter. In the photo, the VP looked stunning, having ditched her signature pantsuit for a long black gown with flowing sleeves that were cut strategically. The neckline of the gown had ornamental work on it. The photo immediately went viral, garnering over 52,000 likes on Twitter.

Biden's remarks

After the president welcomed all the attendees of the event, he briefly addressed all the artists who were being honored at the ceremony before recognzing the importance of keeping the tradition alive, especially in difficult pandemic times. 



 

"This is a — for this pandemic of profound loss and pain, as we move forward toward repair and renewal, the artist vision is important as it ever has been.  I would argue more important," he said. "The search for greater meaning in our lives and the lives of the nation — we’ve seen the power of art in every form to heal, to comfort, and recover. And as part of a great tradition in our country, Jill and I, Kamala and Doug are going to continue to celebrate and appreciate and support the critical roles that artists play in our nation."

He added: "As the Kennedy Center celebrates its 50th anniversary, as President, my administration looks forward to working with it and the arts and cultural organizations across America, in big cities and small towns, to make more accessible for people of every age and background, what’s there — to lift up more voices, to inspire and support the next generation of artists and creators, and to tell the full story of America — a story of the power of our example as a great nation, because we are a good people with artists who carve angels from marble to set them free."
