On Tuesday evening, President Donald Trump delivered his first Joint Address to Congress — and First Lady Melania Trump marked the occasion with a sequined black power suit, complete with a wide waist-defining black belt.
From Michael Kors’ Spring 2017 collection, the Floral-Embroidered Stretch Pebble-Crepe Dinner Jacket retails for $4,995. “A black-tie suit, shaped, slit and exquisitely embellished—sexy this season is sly,” Kors said of the piece. “This neatly tailored dinner jacket is hand-embroidered by artisans in Italy with 3-D floral sequins for luxe appeal.” The matching skirt is selling for $4,595.
And the Internet couldn’t help but notice that the First Lady’s look bore an uncanny resemblance to one that graced American television viewer’s screens several decades ago.
And while Collins was a beloved character, Melania’s outfit wasn’t entirely met with applause (unlike the rousing one FLOTUS received when her husband introduced her).
Many also called the sequins inappropriate.
There were plenty though that approved of the flashy — and expensive — ensemble, and even jumped to Melania’s defense.
