Olivia Rodrigo is now president

The ‘good 4 u’ singer stepped into the White House wearing archival Chanel

Olivia Rodrigo is bored of your silly little culture wars. Having united Gen Z and millenials with memories of tragic prom nights, unrequited school crushes, and driving by your ex’s house on an endless loop, the 18-year-old singer is now throwing her weight behind the US vaccine rollout.

Yesterday (July 14) Rodrigo paced into the White House wearing an archival Chanel suit from Karl Lagerfeld’s spring ‘95 collection, en route to meet with President Joe Biden and US chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci. As first spotted by @coutureisbeyond on Twitter, the pink tweed two piece has almost a decade on Rodrigo and seemingly pays homage to the all-American women who came before her – Clueless’ Cher Horowitz, Legally Blonde’s Elle Woods, and First Lady Jackie Onassis.

Clomping about Biden’s official residence, Rodrigo wore stark white platforms (Giuseppe Zannotti) and ankle high socks, staying true to that cotton-candy punk which has come to define her style. With a miniature briefcase dangling from her fingers, the singer was partnering with the US government on a string of PSA videos, encouraging young people to get the jab. 

“I am beyond honored and humbled to be here today to help spread the message about the importance of new vaccination. I am in awe of the work President Biden and Dr. Fauci have done and was happy to help lend my support to this important initiative,” Rodrigo said in a press briefing. “It's important to have conversations with friends and family members, encouraging all communities to get vaccinated.”
