Melania Trump’s dress on New Year’s Eve sparked controversy in comparison to dresses worn by First Lady Michelle Obama, and garnered backlash toward designer Dolce and Gabbana.

Trump was pictured on New Year’s Eve at her husband’s Florida estate, wearing a black dress with jewel brooches on the shoulders. It was met with praise by people who felt she dressed classier than Obama.

Others, however, expressed their disappointment with the designers’ decision to dress the wife of President-elect Donald Trump, a controversial political figure who has been a divisive figure throughout his political campaign.

“You should know stefano that OUR election has torn apart our country,” an angry follower of Stefano Gabbana commented in response to Trump’s dress. “If it were Mrs Reagan, Bush or Obama (either party) no one on either side would mind. But this is offensive to the core.”

Other designers, like Marc Jacobs, have declined to dress the incoming first lady as a result of her husband’s controversial policies and rhetoric.

“Personally, I’d rather put my energy into helping out those who will be hurt by [Donald] Trump and his supporters,” Jacobs said of dressing Melania, The Telegraph reported.

  1. I think she is a beautiful classy woman and she looked stunning. Let the haters hate it is a sign of jealousy and weakness.

  2. Mrs. Trump does not need the help of so called famous designers to assist her with clothing attire! To take such a stand displays ignorance and childish behavior. Part of being a strong and accomplished woman is the ability to dress yourself and make your own decisions. The strength that the Trump’s have shown time and again is their success in leadership, a positive impact on the nation, and world change for a better tomorrow for all of America!

  3. It was New Years Eve– a time to celebrate. Not unusual to have people celebrate the holiday all “dressed” up. She looked beautiful.
