Melania Trump is accused of copying Queen Letizia’s fashion.

The first lady of the United States has faced various backlash after her husband Donald Trump won the presidential election. The FLOTUS, a former model, is no doubt a beauty, but Andrea Jefferson of Political Flare also described her a “copycat.”

“Melania Trump is definitely a very beautiful woman. She has a gorgeous, toned body and beautiful skin. Of course it’s fairly easy to achieve both when you’re married to a billionaire and maintaining your appearance is your only job,” Jefferson wrote.

“Moving on, outside of being a beauty, Melania is also a copycat. I’m serious, Melania has been caught multiple times stealing the words of others,” she continued.

Jefferson shared snaps of Melania wearing the same dress as the Queen of Spain. One photo is from CNN correspondent Kate Bennett featuring the two ladies wearing red gowns. Melania and Queen Letizia’s gowns were not from the same designer, but it was very similar. Queen Letizia was photographed with her stunning dress on April 29, 2017. Melania wore a similar outfit on June 4, 2019.

In another picture, both Melania and Queen Letizia are wearing black dresses with floral print from the same designer Dries Van Noten. Queen Letizia wore hers on Nov. 29, 2019 while Melania was photographed in the same outfit on Dec. 13, 2019 suggesting that the Spanish royal was the first to don the outfit.

Melania has been photographed wearing similar outfits as former first lady Jackie Kennedy, too. Melania’s outfit for Trump’s inauguration three years ago was inspired by Kennedy’s fashion. The color was similar to Kennedy’s inaugural outfit and the design was identical to one of Kennedy’s dresses in 1962.

Melania was also mocked for plagiarism earlier because her speech at the opening day of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland on July 18, 2016 was too similar to Michelle Obama’s remarks at the Democratic National Convention in Denver on Aug. 25, 2008. The same issue resurfaced in December when many realized that her signature was too similar to her husband’s.

As for Melania’s controversial speech, one of Trump’s staff took the blame. Meredith McIver admitted she included passages from Obama’s 2008 speech but did not mean any harm when she did it. She offered to resign but Trump rejected it.
