Melania and the Donald aren’t talking. But as a friend once said, “There are no accidents.”
Melania Trump, wife of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, wore a Gucci blouse called a “pussy bow”to the second presidential debate.
The potential First Lady’s wardrobe choice came as her husband faced blistering criticism over a recorded conversation in 2005 in which he joked about groping women. One of the words he used included a crude reference to the female anatomy.
In addition to apologizing several times since the video emerged, Trump also pointed at former President Bill Clinton’s behavior towards women and the way in which Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton treated his accusers.
Four of those accusers appeared with Trump at a press conference prior to the debate, and were seated in the front row at the debate at Washington University in St. Louis.
The Gucci “pussy-bow” blouse retails at Net-a-Porter.com for $1,100. The site’s editors note: “Pussy-bow shirts are one of Gucci’s signature silhouettes. New for Pre-Fall ’16, this fuchsia style is cut from silk crepe de chine for a languid drape. We think it’s a chic way to elevate office or weekend looks.”
Mrs. Trump matched the blouse with a set of fuchsia slacks.
After the debate, Melania Trump greeted Bill Clinton — wearing her pussy-bow, of course.
The Clintons attended the Trumps’ wedding several years ago, long before their political rivalry emerged.
Social media exploded after the debate with speculation about Mrs. Trump’s blouse. “If Melania Trump is trolling us, this would be the sickest thing ever. I detest conspiracy theories, but a man can still dream,” wrote Sky Palma of Deadstate.
A Trump campaign spokesperson reportedly said that Mrs. Trump’s sartorial choice was “unintentional.”
CNBC reports that the blouse quickly sold out in one size and was in short stock in other sizes.
The network also reports the blouse costs a whopping $1,100.
Meanwhile, at a Trump rally today, you won’t believe what happened. This is a must watch! So charming!
