Melania will be in the center of the stage again during State of the Union!
Melania Trump is fluent in multiple languages. And that includes the language of fashion.
The characteristically quiet FLOTUS likes to let her clothing do the talking.
This year, the Democratic Women’s Working Group is encouraging women of both parties to wear white as a nod to suffragettes and those who paved the way for greater female representation in our government. The organization encouraged the same in February 2017, during the president’s address to a joint session of Congress. “Wearing suffragette white is a respectful message of solidarity with women across the country, and a declaration that we will not go back on our hard-earned rights,” Rep. Lois Frankel of Florida, the chair of the working group, told CNN at the time. Dozens of women arrived in white.
However, Melania arrived at the 2017 joint session address in a black Michael Kors skirt suit, standing in exact contrast to those congresswomen. At the time, her defiance seemingly went unnoticed, with most focused on the glamorous suit’s embellishments — and its $10k price tag.
Of course, the following year saw the rise of #MeToo, Time’s Up, and the 2018 Golden Globes “blackout.” During the 2018 State of the Union, congressional women acknowledged the #MeToo movement, and, taking a cue from Hollywood, headed to the Capitol building in head-to-toe black, many sporting Time’s Up pins. The goal was to give a voice to the often voiceless survivors and victims of sexual harassment and abuse. In an interview with Vox, Rep. Lois Frankel, said they sought to send, “a message of solidarity with those who are seeking economic security and a cultural shift that enables men and women to work side by side, in safety and dignity, free of sexual harassment, and be paid fairly for the value of their work.”
The sartorial display was also a statement of support for the 19 women who have accused President Trump of harassment.
And what did Melania wear? White, head-to-toe.
With congressional women planning to wear white tonight, we wonder, what will Melania wear? There is the possibility that the First Lady will opt for a bold color on Tuesday night, or perhaps a pattern for the evening’s address. She’s no stranger to either, for what it’s worth. But one thing is for sure, everyone will be looking for clues that might point to her motivations.
In any case, all eyes will be on our FLOTUS because sometimes she messes with the Dems even with her clothes.
