Katy Perry capped off President Joe Biden's inauguration in style,
belting out "Firework" in a collection of chic separates by
New York designer Thom Browne.
The "Never Worn White" singer wore all-white as she closed
out a star-studded primetime special, which was hosted by Tom Hanks and

launch of her fragrance, Killer Queen.
But Perry wasn't the only inauguration attendee dressed by the
in-demand designer. On Tuesday, Kamala Harris' stepdaughter Ella
Emhoff posed for a picture at the Capitol in a preppy look by Browne.
Pairing an Oxford shirt and tie with a double-breasted coat, she too
alluded to American flag colors with a pleated red, white and blue
