Updated: Jan 19, 2021, 08:39 AM(IST)

Before even Melania Trump entered the White House she had started making waves from her sartorial choices. Over the years, the former model's sartorial choices are always a bit different. From her sky-high heels to floral jacket, Melania proved her wardrobe is the most controversial in First Lady's history.

Here's a look back at her most slammed, questionable and criticised fashion choices.


D&G's floral coat

During the 2017 G7 Summit, Melania stepped out wearing a 3D-floral embellished silk coat worth $51,500  by Dolce & Gabbana. The coat raised eye-brows for the whooping amount, and the designer label drew a barrage of backlash for dressing the First Lady when the other designers expressed their hesitation for dressing her.


Pumps in disaster zone

Melania received criticism for her sky-high stilettos in 2017 when she accompanied husband to visit Hurricane Harvey victims in Puerto Rico. During her visit, she confidently wore Manolo Blahnik pumps to a disaster zone.




The controversial helmet

Melania Trump during her solo trip to Kenya, and during a safari outing, wore a 'pith' helmet-  the headwear associated with a dark colonial history in Africa- and her move was seen as insensitive. She later addressed it by saying "I want to talk about my trip and not what I wear."



Mini dress in Saudi Arabia

During her visit to Saudi Arabia, Melania was slammed for showing her legs during a visit to the conservative nation.  Before Melania, Michelle Obama was critiqued for not wearing a headscarf during her state visit.


Slogan gone wrong

In response to all the criticism she had recieved in the past, hitting back, Melania wore a controversial slogan jacket, that read "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?". Talking about the controversial slogan jacket, she said in a rare interview, ''It was for the people and for the leftwing media who are criticising me and I want to show them that I don’t care It was kind of a message, yes. I would prefer that they would focus on what I do and on my initiatives than what I wear.''
