Nothing says self-love like a new ensemble from Savage X Fenty. Luckily, the Valentine’s Day drop debuts on January 14 and offers several pretty little things to invest in. The brand partnered with collage artist Labyrinth of Collages, which has fashioned inventive assortments surrounding celebs including Zoe Kravitz, Zendaya, and Harry Styles, to craft imagery for the seasonal campaign.

The shoot stars Miguel, Nazanin Mandi, Alek Wek, Chinqpink and Lulu Bonfils in imagery shot by photographer Dennis Leupold. Savage fans will get a preview of four different Valentine’s-themed collections, with prices ranging from $12.95 – $79.95. Candy Hearts showcases satin lace-ups, dotted mesh, and red lace for pieces that turn the heat up. Seamless Fishnet takes a playful approach with candy-heart shaped prints and a skintight slip in black and red. Meanwhile, Linking Hearts uses embroidery, balconette bras, and garter belts for its collection. Plus, the men’s underwear and sleepwear sections are getting an update with pieces including an oversized satin sleep smoking jacket and matching boxers in a variety of colors.

Lovato said she was speechless when she was asked to perform at the event in her Instagram post revealing her inclusion in it. “I’m SO honored to announce that I will be joining @joebiden & @kamalaharris for their special event, ‘Celebrating America’ on January 20th at 8:30pm ET/PT ❤️🤍💙 I was left speechless when I was asked to perform!” Lovato wrote. “Tune in with various tv networks & live streaming services 🇺🇸 @bideninaugural #Inauguration2021.”

Lovato has been a vocal supporter for Biden during his campaign. She even released a song, “Commander in Chief,” condemning former President Donald Trump’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the California wildfires, Black Lives Matter movement, police brutality, and racial injustice in the U.S.

When Biden was announced as the winner of the election in November, Lovato shared her excitement over his victory. She posted a throwback photo of them together, taken in 2012, and wrote to him, “Our 46th president, @joebiden !!!!♥️🇺🇸🗳 I’ve been waiting to post this photo because I knew deep down you would be our next President. Today we celebrate the millions of Americans who overcame barriers to the ballot box, mobilized their communities and voted in record breaking numbers. This was OUR election and WE WON TOGETHER. There’s still a lot of work to be done, but today we will celebrate each other.”

Pyer Moss, Christopher John Rogers Shine in Inauguration Fashion

style points

Style Points is a weekly column about how fashion intersects with the wider world.

When Michelle Obama wore designs by Isabel Toledo and Jason Wu to the 2009 inauguration, it marked a huge moment in the careers of both designers. Over the course of her time as First Lady, the rising tide of her fashion choices helped lift names like Brandon Maxwell, Thakoon, and Sophie Theallet into the national spotlight—and the pieces she wore often sold out. It seems that, with their choices for the inauguration events, Vice President Kamala Harris and First Lady Jill Biden are taking a similar approach—and using their platform to help boost the profiles of talented young American designers.

Harris and Biden chose looks by Christopher John Rogers and Markarian, respectively, for the inauguration.

Harris made a point of wearing looks by two Black designers—Kerby Jean-Raymond of the label Pyer Moss, and Christopher John Rogers—befitting her historic status as the first Black person to hold the office. Jean-Raymond explains that the backstory behind the camel coat that Harris wore yesterday stretches back well before Inauguration Day. “Kamala’s stylist reached out the day after she was announced as Joe Biden’s running mate. We talked about several projects but always intended to be part of the inauguration,” he says. “We made several options including dresses and accessories for Kamala and ultimately she chose this jacket which the stylist said is ‘the cat’s meow.'”

Jean-Raymond worked on the piece with frequent collaborator Camilla Huey, a costume designer and couturier who he calls “a constant in my life and part of my growth as a designer. She’s taught me how to achieve more difficult executions that I didn’t know how to do before. She was a part of creating my Sculpture for the MoMA and several of the Met Gala looks I created in 2019, some of which remain unseen publicly,” he says. “We began working on a fairly ordinary jacket but we got approval to make some changes this week to incorporate some of our brand identity on the piece. The knife pleat is one of our favorite mainstays in our collections.” As is the wave symbol, which here, he says, represents ““a new wave.”

The designer adds that he hopes the next four years bring “accountability to Black peoples’ issues in this country. Good will from brands is non-transferable to the wearers,” he notes. “Wearing Pyer Moss doesn’t absolve anyone from doing the work; instead it’s a commitment to go above and beyond.”

Meanwhile, Rogers posted Harris wearing his design on Instagram, writing “Thank you, Madam Vice President. We are so honored and humbled to have played a small part in this historic moment. 💜”

Biden selected a blue overcoat and dress by Markarian, a line made in New York City’s famed garment center. “It is an incredible honor to dress Dr. Biden today,” designer Alexandra O’Neill tells ELLE. “I am so humbled to be even a small part of American history.” Biden also picked Jonathan Cohen, a Mexican-American designer who focuses on sustainable fashion, for a COVID memorial service held the night before the inauguration. The mask she wore, as well as the coat’s lining, was made from upcycled fabrics. Said Cohen on Instagram, “Waking up with immense pride and gratitude. Here’s to a new day.”

All of these fashion choices felt carefully considered, and they needed to be. Walking the line of political style right now is as tricky as walking a plank. We crave glamour, but in the midst of a pandemic and crushing economic pain, it feels crass to get gussied up—insert one ill-advised ruffle into the mix, and suddenly you’re Marie Antoinette. Women in politics get equal amounts of flak for wearing designer clothes and for being too dressed-down. The occasional tan suit aside, men in this sphere get little to no pushback. That is changing as politicians shift, for better or for worse, into fashion influencers of a kind, and as younger Congressional entrants like Rep. Cori Bush proudly wear thrifted looks to the Capitol, but the double standards still remain firmly in place. (After all, no one is speculating much on the hidden meaning behind Joe Biden’s choice to wear a Ralph Lauren suit.)

Those concerns had to be on the minds of both women and their teams today. Harris, whose no-fuss, comfort-first wardrobe on the campaign trail earned her the nickname “the Converse candidate,” chose looks that were simple and straightforward with a bit of visual interest, like Rogers’s vivid purple coat, one of the train-loving designer’s more restrained silhouettes. She is known to favor pearls, and broke out a Wilfredo Rosado necklace for today’s events. The First Lady’s aesthetic felt a bit more retro; her Markarian look was a modernized version of a ’50’s silhouette, accented by a velvet collar and cuffs and sprinkled with a subdued ration of Swarovski crystals, striking a balance between nostalgia and modernity.

Harris’s and Biden’s style choices don’t just resonate on a symbolic level, though—they could have a tangible impact on the economic fortunes of the designers they have chosen to support. A Harvard Business Review study found that when Michelle Obama wore a brand’s clothing, its stock price soared. It’s an understatement to say that it is a challenging time to be a small business right now, and fashion businesses are no different. If today’s style statements are anything to go by, Biden and Harris seem to be making a commitment to boost an American industry—one that could benefit greatly from their shared co-sign.

Lady Gaga on What Her Inauguration Dove Pin Means

Lady Gaga wore one of the most dramatic looks of President Joe Biden’s inauguration, stepping out to sing the U.S. national anthem in a giant custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture look designed by Daniel Roseberry: a fitted jacket in navy cashmere, a skirt in washed red silk faille, and a giant gilded dove of peace brooch.

After performing, Gaga took to Twitter to explain the symbolism of her pin choice. No, she wasn’t trying to channel The Hunger Games‘ mockingjay; she was trying to send a message of peace to a very divided country. “A dove carrying an olive branch,” Gaga wrote. “May we all make peace with each other.”

Gaga reflected on the honor of singing The Star-Spangled Banner on Twitter ahead of her performance. “Singing our National Anthem for the American People is my honor,” she wrote. “I will sing during a ceremony, a transition, a moment of change—between POTUS 45 and 46. For me, this has great meaning. My intention is to acknowledge our past, be healing for our present, and passionate for a future where we work together lovingly. I will sing to the hearts of all people who live on this land. Respectfully and kindly, Lady Gaga.”

The day before the inauguration, Gaga posted a photo of herself wearing a white Givenchy cape dress in the Capitol on Instagram. She called for acceptance and peace on inauguration day. “I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans,” she wrote. “A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls. Love, from the Capitol 🇺🇸”
