Melania Trump's white State of the Union pantsuit might have a hidden meaning




 

Melania Trump dazzled in an ivory suit while attending the president's State of the Union address Tuesday night.

The 47-year-old first lady wore a cream pantsuit by Christian Dior, a silk blouse by Dolce & Gabbana, and nude heels by Christian Louboutin. While she looked elegant, many on social media noted with irony that the look mimicked the white pantsuit Hillary Clinton wore on Election Day. The color white was also adopted by the National Women's Party to honor women who fought for the right to vote.





Others noted that Melania's outfit looked like a tribute to Kesha's poignant performance during Sunday night's Grammy Awards, when the singer joined forces with female peers such as Cyndi Lauper and Camila Cabello - all clad in white - to deliver a powerful #MeToo message to her alleged abuser, producer Lukasz "Dr. Luke" Gottwald.



Immediately, Melania raised eyebrows for arriving at the Capitol separately from her husband, instead choosing to catch a ride with her guests, who sat with her in the audience.

According to CNN, the move was "a break with long-standing tradition," but White House press secretary Sarah Sanders explained that the first couple traveled apart for "no reason other than she can greet the guests and he can go straight in."

Melania's spokesperson Stephanie Grish also told CNN, "In addition to holding a White House reception and photo opportunity for them, along with their friends and family, she is accompanying them to the Capitol. Once there, the first lady and Mrs. Pence will host a more intimate meet-and-greet to engage with them on a personal level prior to the speech."

Melania has been noticeably quiet in the wake of recent reports that the president paid adult film star Stormy Daniels $130,000 one month before the election to keep quiet about an affair shortly after Melania gave birth to the couple's son, Baron, in 2006.

Both the White House and Daniels have denied the affair and on Friday, Grisham tweeted, "BREAKING: The laundry list of salacious & flat-out false reporting about Mrs. Trump by tabloid publications & TV shows has seeped into 'main stream media' reporting. She is focused on her family & role as FLOTUS - not the unrealistic scenarios being peddled daily by the fake news."


Still, Melania's actions have not done much to quash rumors. On Thursday, she abruptly canceled a trip to Switzerland with her husband to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on the same day as their 13th wedding anniversary.

And on Saturday, Melania acknowledged the one-year anniversary of President Trump's inauguration with a photo of her on the arm of a U.S. Marine.
