The iconic Jackie Kennedy aesthetic has been emulated by everyone from Ariana Grande and Kim Kardashian to Princess Diana and former First Lady Melanie Trump. But at Wednesday night’s dedication ceremony, it wasn’t a member of the Biden family who appeared to channel the former first lady, or one of Vice President Kamala Harris’s parents; Rather it was Katy Perry, who performed her hit song “Firework” in tandem with a blazing pyrotechnic display above the National Mall.

In the Instagram post above, Perry seems to suggest the look evoked a dove, an international symbol of peace. But the pop star’s white winter ensemble from Thom Browne, which included a cashmere coat with navy buttons, a structural corset, and a floor-length silk satin skirt (again with button detail , although red this time for a patriotic touch), also echoes two of Jackie Kennedy’s inaugural looks: the Oleg Cassini dress paired with long white gloves that she wore early on the day of her husband’s inauguration. , and the gorgeous formal floor cape she chose for the inaugural balls that night. Perry’s outfit was certainly an updated version of the silhouettes, but the similarities are obvious.
Others pointed out that the shape of Perry’s ensemble resembled a look Audrey Hepburn wore in the 1957 film. Funny head, although in the movie the top is a shiny bubblegum pink.
Browne didn’t confirm the outfit’s inspiration, but in an email to Town & Country he called the look “sophisticated” and “understated,” and said he wanted “the overwhelming talent of Perry is the center of attention “and for her” that he shines. “
“It is such an honor to be a part of this amazing day,” said Browne. “Thank you Katy … thank you Mr. President.”
