Kellyanne Conway’s Inauguration Getup Raised Some Eyebrows
Donald Trump is now officially the 45th president of the United States. But something else caught our attention at the inauguration ceremony–Kellyanne Conway’s outfit. She celebrated Trump’s swearing in wearing a very patriotic coat/dress in red, white, and blue. Someone pointed out that the outfit is a $3,600 Gucci creation, and if you look closely, the buttons are actually catheads. She paired the coat with a red hat.
Twitter exploded with speculation about her inspiration:

“The Daily Show” was pretty on point.

Though the colors match the American flag, the high-end designer clothing site Net-A-Porter wrote that the coat was inspired by the British flag that includes the same colors. And considering the British connection, she could also have been inspired by this furry guy—especially with the hat.

But the French flag also has the same colors, so maybe it was a nod to Napoleon.

Or maybe she was influenced by the sports world?

Today also happens to be Kellyanne’s 50th birthday, so maybe she just wanted to be really dressed up in her favorite colors. The inauguration festivities will go on all day long and end with the inaugural balls tonight.
