La petite robe noire de Melania Trump est née d’une nouvelle théorie de la conspiration de la mode: elle est solidaire des victimes d’agressions sexuelles.
La première dame portait une robe-chemise noire à col noir pour regarder son mari parler au La 73ème session de l'Assemblée générale des Nations Unies à New York mardi, où le président Trump devait prendre la parole à plusieurs reprises sur des sujets tels que la souveraineté et l'Iran.
As often happens, Melania’s outfit churned controversy and speculation. Many commenters online assumed that her choice to wear the color black indicated support for the social movement #BelieveSurvivors, which has encouraged people who support Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school, to wear black clothing and participate in a walkout launched by the #TimesUp movement. On Monday, Sen. Kamela Harris, D-Calif., and actresses Kerry Washington and Debra Messing expressed their support.
Two weeks ago, a confidential letter written by Ford, a California professor, surfaced, alleging that Judge Kavanaugh, Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, had sexually assaulted her at a party when they were both in high school, trying to rip off her clothing while covering her mouth. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
Ford has also received support for speaking up, prompting the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport to explain why many victims are hesitant to come forward. On Sunday, a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, accused the judge of pulling down his pants and thrusting his penis in her face while they were students at Yale University. And Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult star Stormy Daniels, who alleges that she had an affair with the president in 2006, has teased the possibility that a third Kavanaugh accuser will come forward.
While Trump has supported Kavanaugh, calling the accusations “totally political,” Melania has not conveyed her opinion. Meanwhile, her outfits — whether a “pussy bow” blouse, a white pantsuit, or a jacket bearing the slogan ‘I don’t care’ — are an endless source of speculation.
