Kellyanne Conway Defends Inauguration Day Outfit


The Internet had a legitimate field day with Kellyanne Conway’s Inauguration Day outfit, which consisted of a casual $3,600 red, white, and blue Gucci military-style coat that drew comparisons to Paddington Bear, garden-variety nutcrackers, the American Girl doll Molly, the doorman at FAO Schwarz, the New England Patriots’ logo, and Napoleon. But now Conway is now offering an “alternative fact” for all of those who criticized her so-called patriotic getup—and, true to form, she isn’t holding back.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Conway stated she’s “sorry to offend the black-stretch-pants women of America with a little color.”

We’re not exactly sure who “black-stretch-pants women of America” are but if Conway is referring to the leggings-as-pants movement, then she’s quite possibly referring to all of us.

The presidential advisor previously referred to her Inauguration Day outfit as “Trump revolutionary wear,” which was an interesting descriptor, considering the coat from Gucci’s 2017 Cruise collection was actually inspired by England and made in Italy.
