The clothes and jewelry that First Lady Melania Trump chose to wear for her first official White House photo released on Monday are still gaining backlash for Melania, but Mrs. Trump has at least one designer defending Melania’s choice of clothing. As reported by the Inquisitr, Melania was photographed in a black Dolce & Gabbana jacket — believed to be the black Dolce & Gabbana Turlington Satin-Trim Two-Button Jacket, which comes with a hefty price tag of $2,895. Combined with a black silk Hermes Twilly scarf that costs $680 from the luxury French designer, the clothing alone donned by Melania and featured in the White House photo ran upwards of $3,575. Coupled with Mrs. Trump’s huge 15-carat diamond on her wedding ring, along with another diamond ring featured in the photo, and her unseen shoes in the pic, and Melania’s White House photo outfit could be worth untold amounts of money.

As reported by Yahoo Style, the exorbitant cost of the clothing and jewelry displayed in Melania’s White House photo, which was photographed by the Belgian-born photographer Regine Mahaux, didn’t sit well with everyone. Alyssa Milano told Melania that she looked beautiful in the White House photo, as reported by Us Weekly, but the 44-year-old Milano also added that Mrs. Trump’s diamond rings alone could provide plenty of food for poor people in the U.S.
“You look beautiful, but you could feed many of the impoverished in our country with your rings.”
The fact that the Dolce & Gabbana co-founder, Stefano Gabbana, dubbed Melania a “DG Woman” on Instagram and reposted the photo of Mrs. Trump wearing the Dolce & Gabbana garb received a big response on social media. With more than 12,500 likes in one day, the Instagram account of Stefano has gotten more than 1,100 comments, and not all of them are in agreement with the post from Gabbana, which has the U.S. flag along with the “Made in Italy” hashtag.

Many of the comments praised Melania for her beauty, and some folks wrote that they loved the #DGWoman look. Others wrote that they would be boycotting Dolce & Gabbana as a result.
According to Yahoo Style, one person who wrote that Melania’s photo was “disgusting” got a heated response from Gabbana when he wrote to @it_magazine_ to “vai a cagare” which means “go to hell.”
