Jackie Kennedy’s iconic style has been imitated by a wide range of celebrities and public figures, including Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, Princess Diana, and Melanie Trump, who was a former first lady. But at the official opening celebration on Wednesday night, it wasn’t a participant of the Biden family or one of Vice President Kamala Harris’s family members who seemed to channel the former first lady; rather, it was Katy Perry, who performed her hit song “Firework” in conjunction with a blazing torchlight parade above the national mall. Katy Perry appeared to channel the former first lady.

In the photo that you can see above, Katy Perry appears to imply that the outfit was meant to mimic a dove, which is a universal symbol of peace. But the pop star’s winter white ensemble from Thom Browne, which showcased a cashmere coat with fleet button attention to detail, a systemic corset, and a floor-length silk skirt (again with button info, but this time with red buttons for a patriotic flair), also echoed two of Jackie Kennedy’s inauguration looks: the Oleg Cassini dress paired with long white gloves that she wore early in the day of her husband’s inauguration, and the stunning floor-length formal There is no denying that Perry’s costume is an updated take on the silhouettes, but there is no denying their similarities.

Others have mentioned that the silhouette of Perry’s outfit is similar to the style that Audrey Hepburn wore in the film Funny Face, which was released in 1957. However, the top that Hepburn wore in the movie is a vibrant bubblegum pink.

Browne would not reveal the outfit’s sources of inspiration, but he did describe the style as “smart” and “understated” in an email to Town & Country. He also noted that he wanted Perry’s “huge skill to be the focus” and for her “to shine.”

Browne remarked that “it is such an honor to be a small part of this extraordinary day” when asked how he felt about his participation. “Thank you, Katy… I would like to thank you, Mr. President.”
