Melania Trump's $51K coat is generating a lot of reactions on Twitter. While the ready-to-wear label’s designs can frequently have four-figure price tags, the Dolce & Gabbana piece she wore in today is substantially pricier — $51,500, to be exact. The collarless jacket, festooned with multicolored, 3-D flowers, is from the label’s fall 2017 collection. Melania wore the silk coat draped over her shoulders, atop an ivory shift dress, during the last day of the President’s world tour (the final leg is for the G7 summit, held in Sicily today). She carried a matching clutch, complete with a bejeweled clasp, that’s comparatively less expensive, though still rings i
First Lady Melania Trump stepped out of the White House on Friday wearing a military-inspired coat to greet Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and his wife, Lucy.

Trump has worn more Dolce & Gabbana looks on this trip than any other label, including these flower shoes at Thursday's spouse dinner in Belgium, at the close of the NATO summit. Stefano Gabbana, one half of the design duo, has been chronicling Trump's looks on his Instagram feed Thursday, saying "my fav shoes" about the $1,995 strappy heels. It is possible that Dolce & Gabbana loaned Trump the coat -- the White House did not immediately respond to a CNN a request for comment, nor has Dolce & Gabbana, who CNN asked for clarification and specifics on the jacket. For outfits that first ladies wear for state dinners, or historic public events, items can be gifted from designers, and accepted on behalf of the US government.
However, Dolce & Gabbana is one brand that has openly advocated having the First Lady wear its designs. She wore a black Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo jacket in her first official White House portrait and while meeting Pope Francis. Well, now the Italian fashion house's support has been translated into a T-shirt aimed at critics—but if you want it, it'll cost you $245. The white tee features the word #BOYCOTT on it in bold letters, along with the Dolce & Gabbana logo and a red heart. VIDEO: Melania and Barron Trump Have Officially Moved Into the White House.

But from the looks of Melania's many appearances — she stunned in a plum avant-garde Delpozo design, wore sparkling tweed Chanel for the tree lighting, and, oh, yeah, made headlines in her $51,000 Dolce &
