Melania Trump makes a bold statement in Dior color-block coat worth $9,000 for Thanksgiving celebrations
Melania Trump was called out for her choice of wardrobe while attending the White House Thanksgiving turkey pardoning ceremony
Melania Trump was seen sporting a bold Christian Dior coat while attending the White House Thanksgiving turkey pardoning ceremony which took place on Tuesday. The first lady's choice of clothing looked like the epitome of luxury and is estimated to be worth $9,000.
The first lady wore a Dior coat which had different shapes in red, white, and black. She also wore a pair of black pants along with a black top and finished off the look with a pair of knee-high Christian Louboutin heeled boots. Ever since moving into the White House, one of Melania's favorite go-to designers has been Dior. The coat is from the pre-fall 2018 collection which was designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri.
Many people criticized Melania's choice of outfit and some even went to the extent of comparing the color of the coat to that of Turkeys. One Twitter user wrote, "Someone needs to pardon Melania's coat." While another fan added, "Interesting choice of outfit for Pokaflotus." However, some fans were on Melania's side and came to her defense.
Melania was seen standing next to Trump as he pardoned two turkeys named Peas and Carrots who had traveled from South Dakota to be blessed by the president. Melania was seen smiling and laughing as Trump spared the lives of the animals.
This is not the first time that Melania has been called out for her choice of wardrobe as just this past October, many people compared her outfit to Michael Jackson's and also Dr. René Belloq from Indiana Jones because of her white pant, beige coat, a fedora, and black tie combination. In August, Melania helped to plant a tree with descendants of past presidents and chose to sport a floral skirt with Louboutin heels.

Fans were baffled at why she would opt to wear stilettos as her gardening shoe instead of something more practical. However, Melania received the most criticism and backlash when she was seen sporting a Zara coat which read 'I Don't Really Care, Do U?' before she headed on a trip to visit immigrant children who had been separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border.
