Melania Trump has made many fashion missteps in her time as the First Lady. Some of these fashion faux pas have been innocent and meme-worthy, like the time she wore pants that made it look like she was naked or when she rocked the one glove look at the State of the Union. Other fashion moments have been more Trump-y, ie. extremely harmful and inappropriate. We’re thinking specifically of that awful, awful jacket. This week’s fashion head scratcher was on the lighter side, with Trump wearing a high-end dress that looked like low-end window coverings.
Celebrating President’s Day on Monday, Trump wore a $2,500 Gabriela Hearst dress while attending an event at the Miami Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, where she helped to open a healing garden and new intensive cardiac floor. She also awkwardly stood next to some patients, wearing a dress that wasn’t suitable for getting down on the floor and playing with kids.
The reaction to the Jane Long-Sleeve Floral-Print Silk Midi Dress has been divided on social media, with some applauding the FLOTUS for choosing the breezy, floral mid-length dress. Others, in a word, hated it.
What is Melania wearing? It looks like the Mar-a-Lago curtains.

Lovely garden doors and nice dress. But kids need #healthcare care & asylum seekers need protection.

Melania, why aren’t you down there with the kids? Afraid they’ll spit on your expensive dress?

Did you turn the sofa into a dress? Way to save money, Melania! You can donate the savings to the immigrant children your husband put in chain link prisons!

We will give the First Lady points for actually visiting with the patients, unlike her husband who spent the weekend golfing. But it’s better this way. Those kids have been through enough.
Met strong and brave young patients @Nicklaus4kids on Monday. Wishing them a speedy recovery and joyful life! Thank you @jacknicklaus and Barbara, doctors, nurses, and caregivers for saving lives. pic.twitter.com/sXszQSOg1N

This isn’t the first time the FLOTUS has been accused of borrowing her fashion inspiration from Bed, Bath and Beyond.
This is my grandma’s shower curtain. It was stolen last week from her home in Palm Beach, Florida (near Donald and Melania Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate). Please call if you can help us solve this heinous crime. pic.twitter.com/TLj9qMcDOT

It’s not even the second time.
After the ongoing failure of her ” Anti-CyberBullying Campaign ”

Let’s get one thing straight. If we’re going to talk about curtain dresses, the all-time ‘Who Wore It Best’ winner will always be Carol Burnett.
