Apparently Melania Trump isn’t a big fan of American designers.
The potential next FLOTUS chose Fendi for her day four look at the Republic National Convention in Cleveland on Thursday. The look, a silk and wool-blend dress with hand-embroidered mink and crystal detailing, is curiously similar (e.g. cream shift with voluminous sleeves) to the Roksanda dress she wore on Monday night when she gave her remarks that contained large portions appearing to be plagiarized from a speech by the current FLOTUS, Michelle Obama.
Melania Trump reportedly purchased the Fendi look via Net-a-porter, eschewing the help of a stylist or a designer freebie. Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump has used the RNC platform to do what the family does best — promote her own brand — wearing ready-to-wear and footwear from her own collections on Wednesday night.
