Melania Trump’s getups are known to steal the limelights of the situations they grace. Aside from her now-iconic H&M jacket that was deemed tone-deaf, FLOTUS was also criticized for her questionable “colonial” fashion choices on her first solo trip to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt.
“I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear,” she famously proclaimed.
Well, here’s good news for her: it seems that her outfit at this year’s turkey pardon further underlined what she and President Donald Trump were about to do.
The First Lady attended her second White House turkey pardoning in a geometric brown coat from Dior that, although autumny, appeared to synchronize with the gobbling guest-of-honors, Peas and Carrots.
In addition to the apt brown hue, social media users thought the red circles and rectangles on the outerwear resembled the color of a turkey’s red beak and wattle.
“How nice of Melania to dress up like the guest of honor,” tweeted writer Tom Myers.
Another Twitter user, ‘realElmerHall’, imagined FLOTUS to have misunderstood the point of a turkey pardon and declaring, “Pardon me, turkey, I believe I’ll steal your wardrobe.”
Check out some witty reactions to Melania Trump and the birds’ apparently matching gear.
