The Look Or Not The Look: Kellyanne Conway Giving You Continental Soldier At The Inauguration

January 20, 2017 / Posted by:

“I have no idea what you’re talking about” said every eyebrow game worshipper who read that headline and then immediately fixed their eyeballs on the exquistely-crafted eye valances belonging to the lady on the left.

At today’s inauguration, Donald Trump’s campaign manager turned counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway busted out some “Do Your Ears Hang Low?” realness when she showed up as some kind of continental soldier-themed American Girl doll. During Trump’s inauguration speech, he said that we will buy American, and as he spit out those words, I’m sure Kellyanne clapped along while wearing a $3,300 Gucci coat that was made in Italy and inspired by the city of London.

Alessandro Michele turned The Cloisters at Westminster Abbey into Gucci’s Resort ’17 runway – it was the first ever fashion show to be held at the historic church. Inspired by the city of London, this coat is tailored from royal-blue, off-white and red wool with a matte finish. It’s decorated with burnished gold feline heads and has a detachable belt to create an A-line.

Kellyanne described her look to reporters as “Trump revolutionary wear,” but some thought she was serving lady nutracker and others expected her to warble out Stars from Les Miserables.  But for me, Kellyanne is done up like a soldier from the Hot Dog On A Stick army who is preparing to go into the battle in the Mall Food Court War. That ensemble also gives me a touch of “Mary Tyler Moore after the spirit of Napoleon possessed her body.”

And as Kellyanne brought the patriotic WTFness, Melania Trump wore Ralph Lauren. Melania’s outfit is like a look from a Project Runway challenge where the designers were asked to create a Jackie Kennedy-inspired ensemble using nothing but blue powdered-surgery gloves, surgical gowns and Snuggies.


I really thought Melania was going to wear all-black and a veil, because starting today, she’ll have to spend her days giving boring speeches at boring events instead of sipping solid gold-infused champagne out of a diamond-encrusted crystal flute while lounging on a chaise covered with a leopard’s hide. RIP to that opulent lady of leisure life.
