Jill Biden looked positively charming in a sparkling sage green dress with a crisscross design over the chest and a floor-length skirt and three-quarter-length sleeve.
The First Lady’s hair was arranged in an elegant, softly curled updo. She completed her ensemble with matching dangling gemstone earrings and stackable yellow-gold bangles.

Jill Biden announced that she’d asked the White House chef to prepare a plant-based menu to prepare for his arrival in a speech on Wednesday, June 21.
The speech read “After years of strengthening ties, the U.S.-India partnership is deep and expansive as we jointly tackle global challenges.
But our relationship isn’t only about governments. We’re celebrating the families and friendships that span the globe—those who feel the bonds of home in both of our countries,” she said of the visit.
During the announcement, Biden also announced that singer-songwriter Joshua Bell would provide entertainment as would the University of Pennsylvania South Asian acappella group Penn Masala.
The state dinner with India is the third of Biden’s administration. He hosted his first with France in December, and the second was held in April, welcoming South Korean officials.
For the welcome, Jill wore a deep, navy blue, long-sleeve dress, matching her husband’s suit.
The first lady rocked a light blue, long-sleeve dress, while her granddaughter went for a light yellow look with a cape.
