Melania Trump Wears $1,100 ‘Pussy-Bow’ Shirt to Presidential Debate After Donald’s Vulgar 2005 Comments


An unfortunate choice? Melania Trump was stylish in a fuchsia top paired with matching pants while supporting husband Donald Trump at the second presidential debate on Sunday, October 9. 

But while she looked great, the $1,100 Gucci shirt was perhaps not quite the best fashion choice given the blouse’s style: pussy bow. Just two days earlier, a 2005 video surfaced in which the Republican presidential nominee was recorded on an Access Hollywood bus bragging about groping women’s genitals.

“You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. When when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” the business mogul, 70, told then Access Hollywood host Billy Bush during the conversation. “Grab them by the p—y. You can do anything.”

He also boasted about trying to seduce a married woman, who Access Hollywood has since identified as Nancy O’Dell.

A spokesperson for the Trump campaign told CBS News Sunday night that the former model’s shirt choice “was not intentional.”

Viewers of the debate were quick to ponder on Twitter why she may have selected to wear this particular style after the presidential hopeful’s latest scandal:

Though Melania, 46, attended the debate, she did condemn her husband’s lewd remarks. “The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me,” she said in a statement Saturday. “This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have.”

But according to The New York Times, the former model refused to do a joint TV appearance with her husband to address his 2005 comments.

The presidential hopeful initially labeled his words as “locker room banter,” which he reiterated again during Sunday’s presidential debate. After co-moderator Anderson Cooper pressed him on the topic, the former Apprentice star denied that he had sexually assaulted women.

Bush, 44, who was heard also making inappropriate comments in the leaked video, has been suspended from the Today show.
