Trump’s senior adviser is reportedly in ‘revolutionary wear,’ Italian style
Kellyanne Conway doesn’t seem to have received the “America First” memo. At least, according to social media.

Twitter is abuzz at her outfit for Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony, which looks like a costume out of the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton.” That appears to be the goal for Conway, who managed the president-elect’s successful electoral campaign in its final months. She reportedly called her red, white and blue ensemble “revolutionary wear.”
It actually appears to be a $3,600 A-line wool coat with metal details and a detachable belt from Italian design label Gucci.
“I get that she’s getting ready for the Revolutionary War, but it’s a bit overdone,” says Sara DiMedio, a stylist who has dressed Hollywood actors like Lindsay Lohan and Julianne Moore. “Doing without the hat could have made it less costumey.”
As for wearing an Italian label to the inauguration? “There’s nothing wrong with representing global fashion but on inauguration day, the team should be wearing American designers,” she says.
