Melania Trump’s fashion and beauty choices have had the Internet all riled up in 2018, and the last week of the year is proving to be no exception. The First Lady joined President Donald Trump on a visit to Iraq and Germany, and her travel attire has divided followers on Twitter.
The outfit in question appeared on Thursday when The First Lady arrived at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. She wore a $2,480 Prada peacoat, sunglasses, and tight, tan leather pants — but between the camera flash, the dark of night, and her own skin color, Trump’s lower half turned into an optical illusion.
Photos of the outfit quickly spread on Twitter, where some latched onto the fact that she was wearing sunglasses in the pitch-black night and others wondered if the First Lady was wearing pants at all. Folks online responded to the news stories about the Trumps’ stateside return with speculation about her ensemble. Some people thought she was wearing a miniskirt and confused her tan leggings with bare legs.
The most sinister among us speculated about the material used to make such skintight, skin-colored pants.
FLOTUS has made some strange fashion choices in the past, but at least a quick zoom-in reveals that the First Lady was indeed wearing pants. Now that that’s figured out, we can turn our attention back to the government shutdown, detained immigrants at the border, and rampant income inequality.
