How fantastic does this woman look for 70 yrs of age? She's slim and extremely stylish, great hair as well and she wears stilettos! She's still working as a professor of English and she's the first lady of America. Not sure about the jacket with LOVE emblazoned on the back though. Apart from that my hat is off to you Jill! You're an example to us all.

Do you think the jacket was in reference to the one Melania wore that said ,"I really don't care, do u?"?

Pitt city, I think it was!

I liked the fact she took her shoes off for a paddle with Carrie and Wilfred, very stylish but down to earth too.

What a welcome contrast to Trumps wife.

There are many things to admire Dr Jill Biden for; but her 'slimness' and ability to wear stiletto heels are not two of them!

I have to admit to admiration about how good she looks, even if she does have a lot of help to achieve it. The heels? No. I don't think women should hobble themselves by wearing them.

Surely Melania led the way in matters of being thin and the ability to wear impractical and uncomfortable footwear

I wish I was as slim as Jill Biden, but alas it’s not going to happen.

Whitewavemark2 Fri 11-Jun-21 07:30:40

Melanie led the way in many things. “Stepford” springs to mind😄

aquagran Fri 11-Jun-21 07:41:37

Oh, I admire women of seventy who wear heels and are slim. Doesn’t mean I don’t value their other qualities.

And lack of facial expression!
Poor taste in men?

Looks very good for her age. Love her style.

At least Jill Biden looks as though she's enjoying the occasion - no grimace, clenched fists and swatting away her husband's hand!

I'm not sure about the practice of using spouses as photo opportunities - we don't see Mr Merkel frolicking barefoot on the beach.

FannyCornforth Fri 11-Jun-21 07:58:07

Riverwalk grin love your Herr Merkel comment, we never saw Mr May at it either!

Lucca Joe Biden's face is more than a tad odd
I heard that some particularly far gone QAnon types believe that his face is actually a mask
(presumably to hide his real, reptilian fizzog? 🦎)

Just such a relief after the attention grabbing rudeness of the previous president.

Funny how male leaders generally have a 'supportive wife' whilst female leaders partners are forgotten.

Can we can add them to the plethora of other, more noble, qualities she possesses fanny?

FannyCornforth Fri 11-Jun-21 08:43:04

I don't get what you mean Chewy

I really don'tbelieve that women should be admired for being thin.
I was borderline anorexic in my youth, which buggered up my metabolism, so now I am fat, despite eating very little.
My thinness was so 'admired' that my best friend became bulimic, sometimes that she still struggles with

FannyCornforth Fri 11-Jun-21 08:43:44

Something, not sometimes

Galaxy Fri 11-Jun-21 08:44:51

Joe Biden is slim. I have never seen it mentioned. It is weird the way we treat politicians spouses.

Chewbacca Fri 11-Jun-21 08:54:51

I don't get what you mean Chewy

Never mind.

Never mind.

Oh, I take it that you were having a pop at me then

Dryginger Fri 11-Jun-21 09:09:57

Chewbacca your so funny 🤣🤣😉

I think it is perfectly alright to admire how someone looks Fanny I dont know why you think it is not.
Most people/posters are sensible and do not go to the extreme. People should be free to comment and admire. Your personnel cicumstances have nothing to do with this thread and are not the norm, although I accept this is horrible for sufferers, but it has nothing to do with people commenting on Jill Bidens appearance.
Someone told me the other day they liked the style of something I was wearing, it was a compliment, I took it as such, like I took this thread by the OP when she commented on Jill Biden.
