Olympian Simon Byles made history as the youngest person to receive the Presidential Independence Medal at the age of 25. The ceremony to honor 17 people was held at the White House on July 7, and fianc Jonathan Owens was there to cheer her on. The couple, refreshed from their tropical vacation, look integrated for the event, Biles finished in a tweed double-breasted tuxedo minidress woven with metallic yarn and finished with a satin lapel and pocket flap.

The gymnast, who was recognized as a lawyer for mental health and victims of sexual harassment, completed her outfit with simple black heeled sandals, a fine gold nose ring and a choker necklace. Her shiny oval-shaped diamond engagement ring was all over the display, accentuated with an ombre manicure in pink.

Owens, meanwhile, wore a powder blue suit over a white button-down to coordinate with his Alexander McQueen platform sneakers. “You inspire me more and more every day to be my best version,” he captioned a post dedicated to Byles in his feed.

Byles and Owens continue to show off a range of stylish looks as they prepare for their upcoming wedding – both off-duty and event – so we can only imagine what an impressive wardrobe statement their wedding time will bring. (We already know that for the big day Biles Galia Lahav will wear not one but multiple gowns.)

On the front, see Byles receive his honors from President Joe Biden, admiring the pair posing for photos and shop-inspired blazer dresses that boast similar details.
