Melania radiates royalty in dazzling gold gown, channels her inner Disney princess

First lady Melania Trump earned oodles of praise for her bold fashion sense this week after she attended a black-tie dinner Thursday at the Blenheim Palace hosted by British Prime Minister Theresa May in a gown so dazzling some compared her to a Disney princess.

Whereas the president kept it simple with a traditional tuxedo (can be seen below), the first lady paired a pale yellow gown from French label J. Mendel with matching heels. And notice how she wore no flashy jewelry. In fact, she wore no jewelry at all, choosing instead to keep things simple.

But while her outfit was simple, it was still radiant — enough so that the $6,990 gown subsequently sold out at J. Mendel’s online store.

What also made the gown so stunning, besides its beautiful wearer, was that it resembled a similar gown worn by the princess Belle in Disney’s classic animated musical/film “Beauty And The Beast.”

According to social media users, this similarly made the first lady the literal “belle of the ball”:

The Trumps arrived in the U.K. on Thursday for a brief, multi-day visit with the island nation’s top leaders and Queen Elizabeth II.

May presumably chose Blenheim Palace as the location for their first meal together because of its rich history. About 144 years ago, on Nov. 30, 1874, an American woman known at the time as Jennie Jerome gave birth to Winston Spencer-Churchill, a boy who decades later would single-handedly save Western civilization from Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

But for every proud American and Trump supporter who celebrated the president’s historic visit and his wife’s dazzling choice in attitude, there was an equally unproud hater bursting from the seams with venom and antipathy.

Look, and be prepared to cringe:

Isn’t that sexism? Or does the frequently misused “sexism” charge only apply when the victims are liberal women?
