Melania Trump often receives criticism from various sources. At times for other fashion choices, other times for her actions.
One of Melania Trump's very vocal critics, is Lynn Yaeger, a celebrity and fashion journalist writing for the popular Vogue publication.
Back in August, Yaeger wrote about Melania's "unfortunate image" when the First Lady traveled with President Trump to Texas after a hurricane devastated the area.
While boarding Air Force One, journalists noted that Melania was wearing stilettos, and mocked her for the inappropriate choice of shoe.
At the time, Yaeger wrote:
"While the nation is riveted by images of thousands of Texans wading with their possessions, their pets, their kids, in chest-high water, desperately seeking refuge [...] Melania Trump is heading to visit them in footwear that is a challenge to walk in on dry land."
Yaeger's article was filed under the Opinion section of Vogue's site, and while she is entitled to her opinion, netizens now feel they are entitled to an opinion about Yaeger's appearance.
The fashion editor is fond of wearing styling her hair in bright colors and unusual cuts while using "abundant blush on her cheeks."
She uses a black lip pencil to light her lips and applies makeup powder to her cheeks as well. Yaeger's dress style is just as eccentric.
Netizens have since taken to Twitter, with Lovitt O'Leevitt saying, "If you don't own a mirror, don't write about fashion!"
Another user shared a picture of Yaeger and Melania side-by-side and headlines that read: "Vogue Fashion editor Lynn Yaeger ridicules everything Melania Trump wears.
The user captioned the image: "Let me guess Lynn Yaeger, Trump is not your president. LOL."
Yaeger is actively publishing on Vogue – and filed a piece yesterday about jewel sales around the world – but has not yet responded to her critics.
Back in March 2018, Mickey Boardman from Paper Mag discussed Yaeger's signature style with several industry experts. Supermodel Karen Elson told Boardman:
"I remember seeing her around in the late '90s at fashion shows and events. I remember being fascinated by her look because I kinda copied it!"
Designer Marc Jacobs added that he is a "devotee of Yaeger," and described her as a "fashion person, a smart woman, a great writer and great presence in our world."
