Olivia Rodrigo took the internet by storm when she strutted into the White House on Wednesday in sky-high Giuseppe Zanotti platform shoes, serving the punk Cher Horowitz vibes we didn’t know we needed. The “Good 4 U” singer visited the nation’s capital to spread the word about COVID-19 vaccinations, appealing to Gen Z to roll up their sleeves. Whether or not she got her message across is up for debate — most of the attention went toward her outfit, a vintage Chanel plaid suit, towering heels and black socks.
Some thought the sweet, but edgy, outfit gave off present-day Elle Woods vibes and, given the circumstances, it was reminiscent of Ariana Grande’s “Positions” look. But many found it to be perfectly meme-able.
