Enjoy your day. Well, turning now inside look at inauguration day fashion. Vice president Harris and the first lady both making statements, both dressing symbolically for the occasion and the unexpected scene stealer of the day, there he is, senator Bernie Sanders, Lara is back to break it all down hey, Lara. Hey, Amy, yeah, that's right, senator Sanders sending the internet into a frenzy with his cozy dressed down look complete with homemade mittens but there was one common theme, all the notables were wearing American designers. Pearls, shades of purple and a diverse range of American designers, all on display on the capitol steps during the inauguration. I, kamala devi Harris, do -- Reporter: The first female vice president kamala Harris wearing purple. Vice president Harris' coat and dress by Christopher John Rogers born in Louisiana currently based in New York. Purple, of course, is a combination of red and blue. Reporter: And her signature strand of pearls, a powerful symbol of solidarity with her beloved alpha kappa alpha sorority sisters. You know, it was, again, a nod to both her own personal style signature, her own history, the history of black women and the history of, you know, America as a sort of melting pot of aspiration. So it was so multilayered as a choice. Reporter: Former first ladies Hillary Clinton, Laura bush and Michelle Obama also wearing shades of purple. Symbolizing a call for unity. Dr. Jill Biden's stunning in a hand crafted ocean blue tweed ensemble by emerging New York brand Markarian helmed by designer Alexandra O'Neal. Blue is a soothing color. Reporter: Her designs put together with a small team of sewers who work in New York. The outfit a reflection of American made craftsmanship. I'm feeling honored and humbled to be even a part of this -- a small part of this huge momentous day and also we didn't know she was wearing it until she walked out. President Joe Biden wearing one of America's finest, the coat, suit and mask all by Ralph Lauren, the legendary designer who was born in the bronx. By evening, vice president Harris changing into a black sequin dress by Los Angeles based designer Sergio Hudson and Dr. Biden wearing an all white dress with a floral touch. The embroidery representing all of the state flowers designed by Gabrielle Ya Hurst who became a citizen shortly after the 2016 presidential election and then Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator having a hugely viral moment at the inauguration for wearing his cozy and comfortable Burton parka and recycled wool mittens hand made from a schoolteacher from his home state of Vermont. The memes and unexpectedly funny twist on a hugely momentous occasion.
