Melania Trump’s fashion has drawn many people’s attention, and the CNN reporter, Kate Bennett, even wrote about secret hidden signals with her outfits in an unauthorized biography titled Free, Melania. Here are some highlights:

  • Melania Trump loathes people who make money off her name.
  • First Lady’s main priority is being a good mother and making a real home for son Barron in the White House.
  • Mr. and Mrs. Trump sleep in separate rooms in the White House.
  • FLOTUS’ ‘Be Best’ initiative has no framework, timeline, or markers for progress.

Melania Trump’s outfits speak more than you think

According to Kate Bennett’s bombshell book, Melania Trump sends secret signals through her fashion choices. Here are 5 most prominent examples:

#1 ‘I Don’t Care’ jacket

It was the most popular and chaotic moment for the US Queen. Melania Trump was under fire for the attire’s print as she wore it on her visit to meet child immigrants on the US-Mexico border after the President’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

However, Bennet is sure the jacker was “a facetious jab” at Ivanka Trump and her efforts to gain positive administration points.

#2 The “pussy-bow” blouse

CNN’s Bennet believes Melania Trump’s $1,100 pink pussy-bow Gucci blouse had a link to her then-candidate biggest scandals. Two days before the presidential debate, Access Hollywood leaked tape of Donald saying, “I could grab women by the p---y because when you’re a star, they let you do it.”

#3 All-white among all-black

In 2019, First Lady caused raised eyebrows when she showed up at a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in a white pantsuit while Democrats wore black outfits due to the peak of the Time’s Up and MeToo movements.

Though Bennet said the reason was unclear, her boldness proved she wasn't afraid to stand out.

#4 Menswear

The CNN reporter claims FLOTUS ops for menswear when she has a rocky relationship with Donald. Kate Bennet wrote:

When the Trumps are unhappy with each other, Melania wears menswear — because Trump notoriously likes to see women in tight, short, uber-sexy, and feminine dresses.

#5 Jacket as “a rich person move”

Bennet believes Melania Trump demonstrates “a rich person move” when she puts a pricey jacket that props up on her shoulders. She once wore a Dolce & Gabbana blazer, retailing for $51,000 at the G7 first ladies in Catania, Italy.

Melania Trump today

Have you noticed that Melania Trump almost always wears sunglasses, even at nights and at super serious events, such as the 75th anniversary of D-Day back in 2019?

Fashion psychologist and CEO of Fashion Psychology Success, Dawnn Karen, believes FLOTUS’ habit for shades has its reasons:

  • Sunglasses help her “shield herself from the public eye.”
  • She often feels like she’s being “bullied” so that something covered helps her gain confidence.
  • Hats also serve her as “an armor” as she cannot see the entire crowd.

Meanwhile, the 49-year-old once claimed she was more than just pretty face. While people mostly focus on her fashion, Mrs. Trump believes she has things, such as intelligence and decency, which also deserve respect. In a candid interview with DuJour, Melania said:

I’m not only a beauty, I’m smart. I have brains. I’m intelligent.

In Dough Wead’s book, Inside the White House, Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law believes Melania doesn’t get much credit for her intelligence.

She’s an incredibly smart woman, and people don’t give her nearly enough credit. When you look at the past First Ladies, there is a totally different standard. The media criticism is so overdone that it actually backfires.

Indeed, First Lady is beautiful inside-out. We love how modesty and boldness perfectly coexist in Melania Trump’s personality. She has shown us how to stay calm when the world falls apart and how to keep it cool when you are under fire. Did you even expect she would be using her stylish outfits to send hidden meanings to the public? Clever!
