Here’s Why Melania Trump’s White Hat is Trending

BellaNaija Style



Today, French President Emmanuel Macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron paid a visit to the White House, but at the traditional state arrival ceremony, Melania Trump stole the spotlight because of her oversized, wide-brim hat.

As Melania officially welcomed the Macrons to the White House alongside her husband, President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning, the First Lady was unmissable in what is reportedly a $2,195 Michael Kors collection crepe blazer and skirt suit which she paired with a matching Hervé Pierre wide-brimmed hat. Pierre has acted as a personal stylist for the first lady in the past; he designed her inaugural gown.

Unsurprisingly, the white hat caught the Internet’s eye, and Twitter users are comparing it to Beyonce‘s black ensemble she wore in Formation video, as well as one of Olivia Pope‘s all-white look in the TV series Scandal.

Whether or not the First Lady took inspiration from these leading ladies, we have to admit she looked really chic!

    Melania is a Fashionista for sure. I I like how she continues to break presidential protocol doing her own thing. If only she would go all the way and have an affair with some black/African mogul or Russian business mogul. She has some princess Diana tendencies. I want a woman-centered scandal in that White House. Something so epic, Stormy Daniels and her kobo kobo oshofree would pale in comparison to it.

    She was freaking over-dressed, people… Who wears a large hat like that to such an event?

    She probably thought she had to beat the french first lady being french and fashionable, but Melania didn’t realise the french though fashionable, are the most conservative.

    Am sure Brigitte and Macron must have had good laughs wondering “why the hat” ?…na who die?

    Melania always looks good. She dresses well and her fashion tastes are cool. If her husband wasn’t Trump Vogue and other magazines would be swooning over her attire as they did with Michele.

    I just want to rant!!
    How do people deal with favouritism.
    It’s really hard when you are the one who is less favoured.
    That has been the story of my life for the past year or so.
    It’s not fair, that’s all I can say, I cannot deny I feel sad and dejected.
    It’s making my insecurities rise and shine again, I will be fine, so long as I have done this.
    No one to talk to, times like this, all I can say is Allhamdulillah, cos, in spite of all the bashing, I have a whole lot to be thankful for.
    Thanks for the platform to vent.??

    Why not the hat? Melania really has style. I think years down the line people will be talking about her style like they do about Jackie Kennedy.

    Why are we concerned about what people say or feel about what we wear? It really is about your ability to project a message and image with your outfit. She chose well and need not be concerned about what Macron and his wifey think is right. This is Melania doing what she needs to do to stand next to a stinkbug as wife so she touched it up with a stiff hat. She dont need to please anyone but herself. She looked in the mirror, looked good. That’s all. Problem is the bag of poop whose hands she has to hold.

    I am pleased that we have Melania as our first lady. She never has a scowl on her face like Michelle Obama had. Melania does not have a chip on her shoulder like Michelle Obama has. Melania dresses elegantly where as Michelle Obama dressed like a rag doll. She always wore a boob belt making her hips look like she wore a size 26 pant. Melania is the best First Lady of our time.

    There is nothing wrong with the hat. Whites wear hats a lot and it’s not until they have church service before they wear one. It’s in Nigeria that you’ll have to wait till Sunday or next Polo event before wearing a hat. You’d even think twice before wearing one… people don’t abuse you.
