Jill Biden proves she's just like the rest of us as she re-wears an Oscar de le Renta gown during day two of the G7 summit.

Dr Jill Biden attended a performance at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall on Saturday, before meeting with military veterans and recycled an old dress for both occasions.

The US First Lady looked gorgeous in the deep navy blue dress, featuring embroidered flower detail, which she teamed with practical flats.

And the eagle-eyed among you may notice this wasn't the £4000 Oscar de la Renta gown's first outing as Jill, 70, previously wore it during her husband's election rally.

Back in November last year, Jill joined Joe on stage in Wilmington, Delaware—where it was announced he'd beat Donald Trump to become US President. 

She wore the same midnight blue dress, but opted for pink heels for the slightly more glamorous occasion.

Jill has been busy getting to know the Duchess of Cambridge during her time at the G7 summit, with the women bonding over their passion for childhood education.

Style icon Kate Middleton—who is also a fan of recycling fashion—and the US First Lady took a joint trip to see children aged four and five at the Connor Downs Academy near Camborne as part of the wider G7 activity in Cornwall this weekend.

Early years development is a topic Kate has been passionate about for years, as well as being kinder to the planet. And now she's joined forces with former teacher of over 30 years, Jill to talk further on the topic.

In a joint opinion piece published for CNN, the pair said a "fundamental shift" was needed in both the UK and US' approach to education, in which "early childhood care and education should be seen as among the defining, strategic issues of our time."

It added, "As we look to a post-pandemic future, there are few issues more worthy of our attention than the transformative power of early childhood care and education for our communities and nations.
