The First Lady shared a photo of herself before Valentine’s Day visiting a boutique bakery in Washington. Posting the picture on Twitter, Dr Biden wrote: “Dropped by @TheSweetLobby earlier to pick up some Valentine’s treats for the weekend. Shhh – don’t tell Joe!”
The picture sent social media fans into meltdown over Dr Biden’s light blue scrunchie.
One Twitter user reacted: “So part of what I never realised I needed was a FLOTUS in a scrunchie”
Another user wrote: “She’s wearing a scrunchie! I love this relatable woman!!!”
A third fan posted: “I cannot describe how cute I think you are in that pink coat and a scrunchie.
“Thank goodness for authentic kindness and love returning to our White House.”
A fourth Twitter user said: “Wearing a ponytail in a scrunchie… Love her!”
But during an interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show this week, Dr Biden admitted she does not understand the hype around her hair accessory.
Ms Clarkson asked: “I noticed you wore a scrunchie and everybody lost their mind.

Ms Clarkson replied: “Well, I’m just saying, if you’re gonna start bringing back scrunchies, throw in the banana clips as well.”
During the interview, the First Lady and Ms Clarkson also had a heart-to-heart discussion about relationships and healing from divorce.
The singer filed for divorce from her husband of seven years Brandon Blackstock in June.
The First Lady reflected on her divorce from first husband Bill Stevenson in 1975.
Dr Biden told Ms Clarkson: “This is what I would say to you if I were your mother.
“You know, my mother always said to me, ‘Things are going to look better tomorrow. And if you can take one day at a time, things will get better’.”
She added: “If I hadn’t gotten divorced, I never would’ve met Joe.
“I wouldn’t have the beautiful family I have now.
“So, I really think things happen for the best.”
US President Joe Biden married Jill in 1977 and the couple had their daughter Ashley together four years later.
