Following the news of Olivia Rodrigo’s scheduled visit to the nation’s capital to promote vaccine awareness to her fellow Gen-Zers, the day has finally arrived and the memes have started to fly. The “drivers license” singer sported a vintage baby-pink-and-black plaid Chanel skirt-suit with black crew socks and white platform heels, a getup many were quick to compare to that of Jackie Kennedy, Cher Horowitz, and Ariana Grande in her “Positions” video. Naturally, people on Twitter cracked some jokes about the odd pop-culture moment.
But many praised her look and accompanying speech.
Update July 15, 10:00 p.m.: Not to be outdone, Kamala Harris joined in on the meme-able antics on Thursday night. The Vice President posted two photos of herself with Rodrigo, both clad in same shade of pink, on Twitter, with the caption, “@Olivia_Rodrigo and I agree, vaccines—they’re ‘good 4 u.’” We have to assume the first photo, which shows the singer and Harris laughing heartily, had to have been taken right after the delivery of a better pun.
