The silent FLOTUS seems to have found her voice. After apparently having taken a laissez-faire approach with Kelly and the West Wing, she’s suddenly speaking out. Calling for the firing of a woman in the NSC. Melania’s requests for promotions for her own staff went ignored for months. So. Something must have happened to set her off with Mira Ricardel. Or. Maybe Melania just finished watching Claire on House of Cards. She and Robin Wright can both rock a Chanel suit.
First Lady Melania uses fashion as her voice. The infamous jacket with I Don’t Care Do You the most overt example of her inclination to speak through clothing choices. Perhaps she longs to be a Tsarina as her husband admires autonomous regimes. The buttercup gown she wore to dinner in Oxfordshire was a J Mendel, established in 1870 St. Petersburg, Russia for the Romanovs. As they go to meet with Putin. Not an idle sartorial decision to be sure.
Today she played bowls in a striped Victoria Beckham. Never shy in her bespokeness. Funny.
Melania creates a media cyclone. So easily. It’s funny. Where is she after her surgery? Countdown until she’s seen in public. Has she moved back to New York? Had a nervous breakdown? Facelift? Did she run away with Barron back to Slovenia? The conspiracy theories abound. And. Feminists who hold women’s voices as so valued are saying that she has no brain of her own. She is controlled by Trump. Her staff needs to tell her what to do. Really?
Then she wears a jacket with a cryptic message on the back. The press goes into a tailspin. As expected. Melania is just a terrific troll. Love it.
