From beanies to baker boy, panama to boaters, we’ve cycled through every hat trend recently.
But, for spring, there is a new hat of choice, and it’s unmissable.
Thanks to designers like Missoni, Awake and Jacquemus, hats have received the supersize treatment, but the topped-off look from the season came far from the runway and instead turned up on Melania Trump.
Donald and Melania Trump held their first state dinner on Tuesday evening, welcoming French president
and First Lady Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron to the White House. In preparation for the occasion,
Melania Trump welcomed her guests, choosing a $2500 belted asymmetric crepe blazer and skirt suit
by Michael Kors Collection complete with a statement-making, broad-brimmed stark white hat,
specially designed and commissioned by Herve Pierre.
The hat has already taken over twitter with some online commentators comparing the style to Beyonce in the Formation video, while others compared Trump to Jude Law as the young Pope. The striking ensemble also
drew other pop culture comparisons from the wardrobe of Scandal’s Oliva Pope – a character played.
