First Lady Melania Trump sported a dramatic white hat as she and her husband hosted French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron for a White House state visit on Tuesday morning.
The NYPost reports,
Not since Pharrell Williams wore a 10-gallon hat to the 2014 Grammys has a chapeau created so many waves on social media.
Some said Melania was channeling her inner Olivia Pope, while another Twitter user compared the look to Beyoncé’s oversized, black “Formation” hat: “Is Melania about to drop her OWN version of Lemonade?”
Despite drawing both raves and roasts, Melania’s chic ensemble was decidedly American — and pricey.
While it’s unclear which milliner created her statement-making topper, her $2,195 suit with a belted asymmetrical blazer is by Michael Kors Collection.
Perhaps in a nod to her Gallic guests, her $745, 4.7-inch heels were from celebrity favorite French shoe designer, Christian Louboutin.
The French first lady also donned white, but she opted or a less fashion-forward look, with a shift dress and smart jacket.
White is a favorite color of the first lady’s. She wore a Dior jumpsuit of the same hue to the State of the Union address.
