Forget Plagiarism, Melania Trump Makes A Bold Political Statement With Dress

Melania Trump was officially introduced to the world at the Republican National Convention held in Cleveland, Ohio on Monday. Her debut speech was in the limelight for all the wrong reason as she allegedly plagiarized a portion of Michelle Obama’s speech from 2008.

Melania Trump, a former model and watch designer is the third wife of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump. Being an immigrant herself before getting an American citizenship, Melania gave a nod to her home country in a Roksanda Ilincic dress, Yahoo reports.

The 46-year-old’s speech completely overshadowed her dress. The tall brunette is from Slovenia, while Roksanda is a Serbian designer based in the U.K. Both Slovenia and Serbia were a part of former Yugoslavia.

Fashion critics appreciated her sense of style as the color signified absolute purity. Or did Melanie intend to present herself as the virginal bride?

The dress was pretty conservative with its round neckline, long sleeves, with a hint of grandeur to it in the form of the fluted sleeves and a slight twist.

The white color of her dress also gave a subtle message of purity and also her political christening.

The dress reminded of Jackie O’s shift dress from 1969, Hollywood Life reports.

Why did Melanie not choose an American designer?  Melania is being presented as the “right” kind of immigrant in Trump’s campaign, who “followed the law.”

So not wearing an American designer seemed to work for the potential first lady.
