Some fashion designers have refused to put their clothes on the soon-to-be First Lady, and others are too afraid to speak out. But Dolce and Gabbana evidently have no such reservations, after Melania Trump was seen in a black D&C cocktail dress on New Year’s Eve.

Stefano Gabbana also proudly posted an image of Melania on his Instagram, calling her a “DG Woman”:


The post infuriated commenters. The LA Times writes:

In response to one Instagrammer’s comment — “No! Whether she’s beautiful or not, would you be proud to dress Eva Braun? So wrong,” — an apparent reference to Adolf Hitler’s companion and wife for 40 hours. Gabbana responded with “Who is Eva Brown? Sorry….”

It seems bizarre that a gay fashion designer would show so much fondness for an anti-LGBT politician, but D&G have a history of this kind of thing. Domenico Dolce sparked controversy back in 2015 for making bigoted comments about same-sex parents. And queer Republicans are nothing new. Gay conservativism makes sense when you love money more than you love yourself.
