- The First Lady of the US Melania Trump dropped almost R500k on her election day outfit
- She was seen leaving Palm Beach, Florida in her designer ensemble after she cast her vote
- While many people were surprised about the obscene amount of money spent on her outfit, others questioned the fact that she wasn't wearing a face mask
The First Lady of the US reportedly donned a half-a-million-rand outfit on election day. Melania can be seen wearing a sleeveless Gucci dress as she left Palm Beach, Florida yesterday. She paired the dress with a designer Hermes bag and Christian Louboutin heels.
The dress alone is estimated to have cost $6 275 (over R100 000), while the Hermes Kelly bag is worth around $23 680 (over R382 000) and the Louboutin heels cost around $900 (over R14 000). That makes the entire outfit over $30 000 (nearly R500 000).
While the cost of her outfit is insane, many social media users mentioned the print of her dress and her lack of a face mask.
According to the NZ Herald, Mrs Trump was the only person not wearing a mask when she cast her vote but her spokeswoman claimed that she was the only one there at the time.
A report by Herald Sun stated that many people claimed that the chain design on her dressed resembled “handcuffs” and accused Melania of sending a “message” with her choice of clothing.
In other Trump-related news, Briefly.co.za recently reported that Trump will head to the Supreme Court to stop vote counting. The Republican leader who is seeking his second and final term in office said he will challenge the results in the Supreme Court as he alleged there was "vote stealing" through voting after polls were closed.
Speaking at the White House on Wednesday, November 4, morning, Trump asked his supporters to prepare for celebrations as he had "won" in battleground swing states despite Biden taking a lead. He said:
"We' will be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 am in the morning and add them to the list."
