Since coming into the position of first lady 100 days ago, Dr. Jill Biden has proven that she likes to send messages through her outfits. So For Joe Biden's first presidential address to Congress, she opted for a dress with several special meanings.

On Wednesday night, she stepped into the U.S. Capitol wearing an upcycled silk wool cady dress by Gabriela Hearst. The sleeves and top were sheer and featured 51 embroidered flowers, representing the United States of America and the District of Columbia. On her mask, there was a coordinating floral embroidery.

If the dress looks familiar, it's because she wore a white version by the same designer for the Inauguration party.

It's also fitting that Dr. Biden chose to wear Gabriela Hearst, a fashion designer known for her using sustainability practices and commitment to using recycled materials. A large part of President Biden's speech was about creating jobs that will combat climate change. "For too long we've failed to use the most important word when it comes to the climate crisis: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs," Biden said.
