First Lady Jill Biden’s custom Valentino purse is a tribute to German Shepherds Major and Champ.
Every dog has its day, but not every dog gets a Valentino purse portrait.
First Lady Jill Biden stepped off Air Force One on Thursday toting a one-of-a-kind accessory: a custom Valentino Rockstud purse featuring hand-painted portraits of the Bidens’ German Shepherds, Major and Champ.
She reportedly carried the personalized purse en route to a vaccination center in Charleston, West Virginia, pairing it with a light pink blazer and pearls.
The First Lady, 69, also toted it during a trip to Colorado Springs earlier this month.
The design is a fitting tribute to man’s best friend, as it also includes Biden’s first initial, “J,” alongside the two presidential pooches.
Those looking to get their paws on a purse like hers can order it for $2,200 on Valentino’s website or in select Valentino boutiques. The style is available in a range of colors; simply upload several photos of your pet, and illustrator Riccardo Cusimano will create a portrait.
Biden isn’t the only famous fan of dog-themed designer duds; Kendall Jenner has two Staud bags ($395) painted with pictures of her pup, Pyro, while Paris Hilton even treated her Chihuahua to an itty-bitty $5,500 Hermès purse.
When Major, 3, and Champ, 12, moved into the White House this year, they marked the return of animals to the residence following four pet-free years.
Major also made history as the first shelter dog to live in the White House, later experiencing some “ruff” press following two biting incidents in his first months as First Dog.
The First Lady said on the “Today” show in April that the younger German Shepherd was getting training to adjust to life in his new home.
She added that the training included getting him more comfortable with felines, as a future First Cat is “waiting in the wings.”
As for when the new presidential pet will arrive, the cat’s not yet out of the bag — but perhaps we’ll soon be seeing Biden with a more feline-focused carryall.
