Nope

why would you want to put your best foot forward?

Did this before COVID. You can ask the recruiter what the dress code is. If there is no guidance or they tell you to where whatever is comfortable, I’d still where something business casual as if I was well dressed for a day in the office.

You should go full suit/tie. It definitely won’t hurt to do so and you shouldn’t give them anything extra to knock you on.
