Melania Trump Pussy Bow Gucci Blouse


It’s fair to say that going into last night’s presidential debate, fashion was not anticipated to be a headline-generator. Following Friday’s release of Donald Trump’s vulgar comments on women, from 2005, the second debate was watched closely to see how Trump would address the offensive and alienating remarks. And while Trump said much — roughly 40 minutes worth of comments — his wife Melania made a loud statement in silence.

The Republican candidate’s wife attended the debate in a fuchsia silk crepe de chine blouse from Gucci (yes, once again sporting a non-American designer) which featured a pussy bow at the neck.

Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, was wearing Ralph Lauren.

Melania’s choice instantly caught the attention of viewers and sparked memes, jeers and discussion on social media. The jury’s still out on whether this was simply a rather misguided oversight or a pointed response to her husband’s crass comments.

“Between her speechwriter and now her stylist, #melaniatrump just keeps taking L’s,” wrote one user. “Melania wore #Gucci’Pussy-bow’ shirt at tonight’s #debate.” The hashtag “#grabthembythepussybow” was also used.

Several ‘grammers simply wrote, “The jokes just write themselves.”
