A week after the country recognized Melania Trump’s speech at the Republican National Convention, another link between the two major parties’ conventions became of topic last night [Thursday, July 28].
As Trump spoke, the public clung to the plagiarization of Michelle Obama’s past convention speech. Soon-there-after, memes attacked Trump’s attire, claiming that too made her a copy-cat as the Internet recalled Caitlyn Jenner’s ESPY dress. However, as the speech scandal gained momentum, the similar style between Trump’s and the former athlete was overlooked. Instead, her white Roksanda number stole the hearts of many, as the dress sold out on after her speech.
A possible buyer that night may have been Ohio Congressmen Joyce Beatty, who donned the same puffy-sleeved dress on the final day of the Democratic National Convention. Was this just a fashion faux-pas or the ultimate shade? Nonetheless, the joys of the web sparked “Who wore it better?” debates.
