The women stood tall and proud behind President Joe Biden at the podium, a phenomenal event in U.S. history that even Biden had to take a moment to acknowledge this long-overdue achievement.

The 46th U.S. President stated that no other president had ever uttered the words "Madam Speaker" and "Madam Vice President." Biden went on to state that it was about time this historic event occurred.

It appeared the President wasn't alone in that thought, as Harris's entrance into the House Chamber on that fateful Wednesday night was welcomed with a round of applause as she made her way to the podium.

A historic event deserves a phenomenal outfit and neither Harris nor Pelosi disappointed their fans.

Upon reaching the dais, the 49th U.S. Vice President greeted her fellow congresswoman, Pelosi with a sweet elbow bump. When asked about the significance of two women behind the President, Harris stated it was "normal."

However, this special occasion was far from the U.S. normal routine as no woman had ever achieved such a milestone. In 2007, Pelosi became the first woman to serve as Speaker of the House.

In January 2019, the 81-year-old female politician regained this position. On the other hand, Harris is not only the first female Vice President but also the first woman of color to hold this esteemed position.

Civilians and celebrities alike took to social media to congratulate the women on their achievements. The majority left positive remarks about the female politicians while some couldn't help but gush over their outfits.

Most notably was Harris's outfit, which consisted of a cream-colored pantsuit, paired with a champagne gold satin camisole. She accessorized with a gold and pearl cuff necklace, as well as a black nose mask.

The stunning outfit was designed by Prabal Gurung, who also styled the Vice President on her first day in office. The Nepalese American immigrant took to his Instagram stories, where he proudly celebrated Harris's achievement.
