Kamala Harris, the new Vice President of the United States, was criticized by Twitter users for wearing an all-black ensemble to the Inauguration Concert on the evening of the Presidential Inauguration.
The outfit in question was a black floor-length coat with a silk lining. Underneath was a sparkly black cocktail dress that had strong shoulders and a pencil skirt fitting.
The designer of the ensemble is Sergio Hudson, an LA-based designer. She had worn the outfit to introduce the singer John Legend at the concert. Hudson had shared his concept on the dress with Harper's Bazaar.
He shared that the country needs to be uplifted right now, so "why not put her in something sparkly." He shared the sequins added glamour and shine to the outfit. He continued and said:
"'Liquid sequins give her glamour and shine, because her influence and the way she’s broken barriers is a light for so many of us. ”
Of course, everyone wants to give their opinion of the momentous occasion. Twitter was abuzz with compliments for the VP for her first look of the day, a Purple coat and dress by designer Christopher John Rogers.

However, many of her fans were blown away by her fashion choices and her speech. Many women opted to wear outfits that celebrated and supported the first woman Vice President.
Including Beyonce's mother, Tina Knowles, who encouraged fans to wear the signature look of Harris, including converse tennis shoes and her iconic pearl necklaces. Her caption read:

Harris is known for wearing interesting and beautiful pearl pieces, and the one she wore on Inauguration Day holds its own importance and significance.
