Twitter Savages Melania Trump's $2,500 Dress, Compares It to Curtain
Melania Trump wears a curtain-inspired creation once again and there’s no escaping the backlash it received on Twitter.
Melania Trump has faltered again in the eyes of the public and it’s because of a dress she wore recently. The First Lady attended an event on President’s Day wearing an outfit that was compared to a curtain on Twitter.
Melania was at the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami over the weekend assisting in the opening of a healing garden and intensive cardiac floor. And while she was doing something honorable, her dress was anything but.
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— Melania Trump 45 Archived (@FLOTUS45) February 20, 2019
Fans slammed her Gabriela Hearst buttoned down frock which featured floral prints and a pleated skirt and reportedly cost $2,500. The comments ranged from branding it the “worst dress ever” to describing it as “hideous.” But one commenter “trumped” them all when he compared the dress to a curtain.
“Did Melania literally have her designer rip the fabric off the curtain rod from 1977 in order to make that dress?”
Someone shared the same sentiment and went to specifics by comparing the dress to the curtains in Mar-a-Lago.
"What is Melania wearing? It looks like the Mar-a-Lago curtains."
While another person likened it to a sofa’s upholstery.
"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!"
A beautiful ceremony at @Nicklaus4kids hospital today to celebrate their new changes! I hope the garden nurtures & heals all the young patients who visit. Thank you to the generous donors & to @Nicklaus4kids for all the important work you are doing. #BeBest pic.twitter.com/qrxXgOGWkR— Melania Trump 45 Archived (@FLOTUS45) February 18, 2019
This is not the first time Melania’s couture drew flak for resembling something you find at home. The dress she wore on New Year’s Eve in 2017 reminded a commenter of a shower curtain.
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— Linda Childers (@lindarchilders) January 2, 2018
Her yellow J. Mendel gown during her family’s first official trip to London in July also got memed for looking like window drapes.

But despite her occasional fashion misses, more often than not, Melania manages to pull off her looks even when she’s caught wearing only one glove. No surprise there since she started out as a model before she became Mrs. Trump and the First Lady.
