Ivanka Trump Just Wore A Designer Who Refused To Dress The First Lady
Ivanka Trump is always worthy of a side-eye, whether she is defending or deflecting (just like her dad!) or greeting Mohammed Bin Salman (who reportedly ordered the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi) at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina. But Trump's latest blunder seems oblivious, even for her.
On Friday, she attended an Argentinian gala wearing an ivory pantsuit designed by one of the Trump administrations' biggest and loudest detractors in the fashion industry, as CNN's White House reporter Kate Bennett first noted on Twitter. Designer Gabriela Hearst has not only refused to dress First Lady Melania Trump, but has spoken out against the president's immigration policies and his plan to defund Planned Parenthood. "If they want to wear the clothes, they can buy the clothes," Hearst told The Wall Street Journal in 2017 — a stance not unheard of when it comes to someone as divisive as FLOTUS.
