This isn’t the first time Trump has worn a Jason Wu dress during her tenure as first lady. She also wore a pinstriped shift by the New York-based designer in 2017 during a viewing of the solar eclipse from the White House.

Jason Wu rose to prominence when Michelle Obama commissioned him to design her gown for President Obama’s inauguration in 2009.

He went on to become a go-to designer at the White House, dressing Obama and now Trump on multiple occasions.

Some people took to Twitter to praise Trump’s chic, cheerfully colored gown.

Others admitted they were confused by the black bows at the waist.

The first lady has been sporting a number of stylish looks during the four-day convention. She wore a military-inspired jacket by Alexander McQueen as she delivered a speech on Wednesday.

More designer looks are no doubt on the way for the first lady as she prepares to watch her husband accept the GOP nomination for a second term on the final day of the Republican National Convention on Thursday. President Trump is expected to deliver his acceptance speech from the White House West Lawn.
