Jill Biden and Lynne Cheney Meet in Double-Breasted Grudge Match. Jill Wins!


US Vice President Dick Cheney (L) and his wife Lynne (2nd-L), welcome US Vice President-elect Joe Biden (R) and his wife Jill as they arrive for a private meeting and to tour the official residence of the Vice President, at the US Naval Observatory in Washington, DC. Cheney welcomed his successor Biden to his official residence, shrugging off his visitor's stinging campaign trail attacks. (AFP/Paul J. Richards)


Yes, yes, LOL, DID THEY MAKE IT OUT ALIVE??? But what I really want to talk about is Jill's faboo style. I normally don't like double-breasted jackets, but Dr. Jill's red cashmere number with the black turtleneck and black/slate mottled skirt is absolutely wonderful, and not at all typical wonkwifewear. Well done!

That said, I'm not wild about the accessories; necklaces and turtlenecks rarely work well together. And Jill? Honey? You are under no obligation to wear a flag pin. Election's over, girlfriend! You won! Yay!

I really do love her.

I believe that when you live in the Naval Observatory, you are required to wear double-breasted peacoats at all times.

lazy,
Regarding the pea-coats, exactly my thought. And that's a bosun's whistle she's wearing on the long chain. A fashion no-no, perhaps, but necessary for Jill's faboo new duties at the Observatory. Go, Jill!

I love Jill's smile.
Hmmm, ahem, Jill. Can you tell the hubby he might want to do something about concealing the hair plugs? Teensy weensy tacky.

Lynne is looking like Chairman Mao in that get up.

Jill is a total MILF and she's not the least bit plastic and Botoxed like (I fear reprisal, so I'll have to use a pseudonym) Mindy McPain.

Jill seems to have tamed the beast! DC is looking almost human there.

She's lovely.

I've always thought Jill was smokin' hawt.

Cheney really needs to stop drinking unicorn blood and just die already. He's only living a cursed life, a half life, and there's not enough Harry Potter blood in the universe to bring him back to human form.

And Jill accomplished this entire fetching outfit on a teacher's salary. Bless her heart! Her reward is in heaven, isn't it?

Oh, thank GOD the election turned out the way it did. The alternate scenario is just unimaginable.

my failing eyes see the same mottledness in the neck area fabric as well. i feel that it is a dress and not skirt/turtleneck ensenble. it is adorable, although the cascade of chains seem a bit sorority sisterish for a grown woman.

God why does Dick Cheney always look like he is thinking about war? oh yea...

...Jill Biden is my new hero. She can pull off the Sarah Palin classic Ann Taylor look without making me hate her.

One of my pals and I want to make a banner reading WELCOME HOME VP & DR BIDEN to display in front of the Naval Observatory come Inauguration Day. At last, they'll be the people in my neighborhood!
