JILL Biden's fishnet tights caused a stir online after she was pictured walking off Air Force One on her way back to the White House.
Fashion watchers were divided on whether the stockings were First Lady material – with some comparing them to a "trashy" Halloween costume.
Mrs Biden, 69, sported the lacy legwear with black heeled boots, a leather skirt and a black blazer as she touched down at Andrews Air Force Base on Thursday.
“Madonna called and wants her trashy look back, Doc,” one Twitter user joked.
Another said: “They might be expensive but she looks trashy as heck dressed like that. What an embarrassment of 1st lady.”
Another troll said it looked like "a last minute Halloween costume from a thrift store."
But others defended Mrs Biden’s edgy all-black look.
“It’s Dr. FLOTUS Jill Biden to you, and she can wear what she wants,” tweeted one fan.
Another said: “Raise your hand if you think @FLOTUS is rocking these fishnets.”
A third said: “If my legs looked as good as Dr Jill Biden in those fishnets & booties, I'd be a wearing exactly the same outfit.”
Another said: “Fishnet tights are in style for spring 2021 and our loving, intelligent, compassionate @FLOTUS looks beautiful and fashionable.”
The head-turning outfit was seen after the First Lady played an April Fool's joke on reporters on a flight back from giving a speech in California.
After boarding, she reportedly disguised herself as a flight attendant named Jasmine.
After the meal, according to one pool reporter: "A flight attendant with short black hair — wearing a black pants suit, black face mask and a name badge reading Jasmine — walked through the staff, Secret Service and press cabins passing out Dove ice cream bars."
Five minutes later, she returned to the cabin, removed her black wig and said: "April Fools!"
White House staffers had no idea of the prank and were also "totally fooled", the reporter said.
Jill married Joe Biden in 1977, after the death of his first wife Neilia and their one-year-old daughter Naomi.
Her inauguration outfit in January included a secret message signifying unity and trust, the designer said later.
Jill's predecessor as First Lady, ex-model Melanie Trump, was known for her bold fashion choices including a jacket with the slogan "I Really Don't Care, Do U?"
Observers have noted the many times when Mrs Biden and Mrs Trump have rocked the same style in similar outfits over the years.
