JILL Biden has hit back at outrage over her fishnet stockings in her Vogue cover chat – after Joe admitted their marriage has changed.
The First Lady argued her tights were were "very pretty stockings" and "not fishnets or lace" during her interview with the fashion magazine.
She said: "It’s kind of surprising, I think, how much commentary is made about what I wear or if I put my hair in a scrunchie. I put my hair up! Or the stocking thing."
"It’s amazing how much people pay attention to every little detail.
“And they weren’t fishnets. They weren’t lace. They were very pretty stockings.”
As part of her cover story the president also spoke with the magazine, admitting his "misses" his wife.
Asked if the presidency has changed their marriage, Joe said: "Yeah, it has."
He added: "I miss her. I’m really proud of her. But it’s not like we can just go off like we used to.
"When we were living in Delaware and married, once a month we’d just go up to a local bed-and-breakfast by ourselves, to make sure we had a romantic time to just get away and hang out with each other."
Jill married Joe Biden in 1977, after the death of his first wife Neilia and their one-year-old daughter Naomi.
Biden's lacy stockings caused a stir back in April.
Fashion watchers were divided on whether they were First Lady material – with some comparing them to a "trashy" Halloween costume.
Biden, 69, sported the legwear with black heeled boots, a leather skirt and a black blazer as she touched down at Andrews Air Force Base.
“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.”
Dr. Jill wearing a floral Oscar de la Renta dress, will grace the cover of the fashion magazine for the August issue, out on July 20.
She used the interview to take a swipe at Donald, calling Joe "calmer."
Taking aim at the Trumps, Jill told the magazine her husband is "just a calmer president," adding: "He lowers the temperature."
The First Lady was pictured this spring overlooking the South Lawn at the White House by photographer Annie Leibovitz.
A second image shows Dr. Jill in the Executive Residence's East Sitting Hall working at a laptop with a pencil in between her teeth.
A third shows the Bidens cuddling together after the president used the interview to say he "misses" his wife since taking office.
Jill made the cover after a four year First Lady hiatus while Melania Trump held the role.
Michelle Obama made the cover a record three times during her time in the White House.
Vice President-elect Kamala Harris also appeared on the cover of Vogue's February issue.
But that cover was widely panned online with many complaining that the Vogue cover did not "do her justice."
