The white pantsuit Kamala Harris wore to address the nation as vice president-elect has totally changed the meaning of power dressing forever. Her victory outfit is sure to go down in fashion history, but that’s not the only time madam vice president wore a silky ivory piece that transcends time — just take a look at the chic silk-satin midi dress she wore on a date in 2001.
Who knew Harris once dated television host Montel Williams? Lucky him. In 2001, the then-assistant district attorney accompanied Williams, and his daughter Ashley, to a charitable event for the Eighth Annual Race to Erase Multiple Sclerosis in California. Stunning as ever, Harris wore a Grecian-inspired ecru silk-satin midi dress, with a plunging neckline, smocked under-bust, and bias-cut hemline. She paired the look with a matching, square-shaped sparkling mini bag, silver strappy mid-heel sandals, and a delicate, gold rectangle-face watch.
Ahead, a closer look at Kamala Harris’s stunning late ’90s style, and a few similar white slip dresses to shop now.
