A Closer Look at Olivia Rodrigo’s White House Outfit

President Joe Biden has tapped Olivia Rodrigo for her help.
On Wednesday, the 18-year-old pop star visited the White House to assist the Biden administration in its effort to help urge more young people to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Rodrigo met with President Biden, as well as his chief COVID-19 medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, to record videos for the cause.
Rodrigo, who currently has the number-one selling album in the U.S., stepped into the West Wing in a chic and preppy getup. The pink plaid and tweed matching set, à la Cher Horowitz of “Clueless” meets Jackie Kennedy, is a vintage Chanel suit from 1995, according to an Instagram account dedicated to Rodrigo’s outfits. The singer paired the suit with white, sky-high Giuseppe Zanotti platform heels, black calf socks (think Blair Waldorf from “Gossip Girl”) and a black, mini Amina Muaddi suede purse.
