Twitter Thinks Melania Trump's Pink Fendi Coat Looks Like A Bathrobe

"It is a waffle bathrobe to me. A very expensive one."

Melania Trump’s colorful designer coat is raising some eyebrows ― and drawing interesting comparisons. 

The first lady stepped out in a pink houndstooth Fendi coat with pink mink cuffs to greet Colombian President Ivan Duque Marquez and the South American country’s first lady Maria Juliana Ruiz Sandoval on Wednesday.

The coat, estimated to cost over $3,500 but currently sold out, looked like a bathrobe to many people who commented on Twitter: 

Despite the criticism, the first lady’s coat is nowhere near as controversial as some of the outfits she’s worn during her husband’s time in the White House.

Back in 2017, the former model donned a floral jacket complete with 3D flowers from Dolce and Gabbana, worth a mind-blowing $51,500.

She also caused controversy for wearing an army-style jacket that said “I Really Don’t Care” during a visit to go see immigrant children in Texas.

The first lady later admitted that she wore the jacket for “the people and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me.”

Maybe a $3,500 bathrobe isn’t the worst thing.
