Here's the Subtle Message in Melania Trump's Dress

Republican National Convention Day One

Melania Trump was officially introduced to the world at the Republican National Convention held in Cleveland, Ohio on Monday.

Illincic did not immediately return a call to her London office for comment, nor did the Trump campaign.

In many ways, Trump's look was more red carpet than White House. "I always used to customize my mum's clothing-she has quite a big wardrobe so there was plenty to choose from", she told The Guardian in 2008. That dress retails for $2,190, and is now sold out on Net-a-Porter.

According to Net-a-porter, Melania chose the stunner without the help of a stylist. "From every angle, the white of the dress was set within a backdrop of red". When she finally did take center stage, however, as a speaker at the GOP convention Monday night, she did it in style.

Felix-Hager thinks not. "She projects a very wealthy, privileged existence". Did you love her latest look?

Not only is she getting slammed for stealing FLOTUS' words, but it seems she may be borrowing style cues from other stars as well!

"She has excellent taste". Within an hour of her speech, the dress had completely sold out.

"She's telling her own story", Felix-Hager says. "She's a privileged, wealthy woman who has access to a lot of things".

I was surprised Trump didn't go with an American designer.

The focus on Melania Trump at last night's Republican National Convention, was, unflatteringly, on the speech she's accused of plagiarizing from Michelle Obama (which Donald Trump's campaign team is vehemently denying).

The 46-year-old former model had a white cotton and silk blended dress with belled sleeves.
