[Ed. – How dare her (or something). Incidentally this is the same fashion editor that went into paroxysms of ecstasy whenever Michelle Obama appeared in a new getup.]
The Washington Post’s Fashion Editor Robin Givhan criticized First Lady Melania Trump for draping a coat over her shoulders in the winter season.
In a piece for the Post, Givhan ridiculed Melania Trump for wearing a wraparound white coat by Max Mara with her custom cashmere and silk knit dress by Hervé Pierre in her annual White House Christmas video.
The coat looks ridiculous. [Emphasis added]
But more than a silly fashion folly, the coat is a distraction. It’s a discomforting affectation taken to a ludicrous extreme. In a video that is intended to celebrate the warmth and welcoming spirit of the holiday season, that simple flourish exudes cold, dismissive aloofness. [Emphasis added]
As Trump gazes pleasantly at all that her staff and a host of volunteers have accomplished, her attire suggests that she’s casually passing through and has little affinity for the occasion.
