For the first time in history, a female of colour, Kamala Harris, became the Vice President of the United States of America. From the Vice President, Kamala Harris, and First Lady, Jill Biden to Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton—key attendees chose to don monochrome outfits, which marked an iconic fashion moment.
The Vice President, First Lady, and former First Lady all chose outfits from small, BIPOC-owned, and emerging brands and wore colours associated with the women’s suffrage movement.
The Importance of the Color Purple
Historically, the colour purple is associated with royalty. It is an official colour of the suffragist movement which generated the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, assuring women the right to vote; what other colours could be amplest other than purple for the ceremony that marks the entry of women in the places of authority.
The colour indicates bipartisanship, as the colour purple is made up of mixing the primary colours blue and red, which then represents the Democratic and Republican parties.
There were many firsts this time around in the name of women empowerment, which is considered a brilliant milestone across the world in times such as today where misogyny is still very much persistent in the world we live in. Women are seen less often in places of authority.
In 2000, Simpsons broadcasted a show called Bart To The Future. The episode revealed Lisa, a character from the show, becoming the first female President of the United States after Trump was President. That is not all! That wasn’t the only similarity the character shared with Harris. In fact, Lisa was also dressed up exactly how Kamala was dressed up for her oath-taking ceremony.
