It wouldn’t be the first time that someone speculated about the calculated political statements behind some of Melania Trump’s outfit choices.
The first lady was out to promote her Be Best initiative at a cyberbullying summit this week but it was her choice of blouse – a pale lavender pυssγ-bow style – which has everyone talking.
At the summit, Melania’s speech about protecting children from cyberbullying made reference to “destructive and harmful” behaviour on social media. Was this aimed at her husband?
Going all the way back to the leak of Donald Trump’s old Access Hollywood interview, where he delivered his now infamous line “Grab her by the p****,” the president’s wife hasn’t held back when it comes to ironic fashion choices.
At the time she wore the two pussy-bow outfits at her husband’s presidential debates that occurred while voters were still reeling from the comment.
Other controversial choices by Melania have included designers known for being favourites of former first lady Michelle Obama and other progressive celebrities. Most noticeable, still, was where she wore a jacket that read, ‘I really don’t care, do u?’ while headed to a US border in Texas.
Just last week, Trump’s former political aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, revealed in her tell-all book Unhinged: “I believe Melania uses style to punish her husband.”
Whether these clothes are meant to make subtle statements, or not, here are Melania’s many looks that have had onlookers scratching their heads.
