Melania Trump's $51K Coat Is the Actual Definition of Out of Touch
Showing up to an economic summit in a single piece of clothing that costs more than most Americans make in a year may just be one of Melania Trump's biggest blunders to date. The first lady stepped out to attend the G7 summit, wearing a 3D floral Dolce & Gabbana coat that rings in at a cool $51,000 — or, basically, showed up with a BMW draped over her shoulders.
While we're all for a splurge here and there, there's a time, a place, and, most importantly, a scale. This move makes Michelle Obama's Lanvin sneakers look like chump change; in fact, it makes some single-family homes look like a steal.

Read on for a glimpse of the coat that's ignited the controversy.
