After skewering Melania Trump’s holiday decorations in the past, The Washington Post has this year approved of her White House decor, and decided instead to criticize the former fashion model’s appearance in a widely mocked piece on Tuesday that labeled the first lady’s jacket “ridiculous.”
The liberal paper’s fashion critic Robin Givhan wrote a piece headlined, “Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations are lovely, but that coat looks ridiculous,” which criticizes the outfit the first lady wore when unveiling the décor.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Post, which called last year’s decorations a “nightmare forest,” spent a single paragraph complimenting this year’s “lovely” edition before pivoting to disapproval.
The Washington Post wrote in their slam against the First Lady’s coat:
But more than a silly fashion folly, the coat is a distraction. It’s a discomforting affectation taken to a ludicrous extreme. In a video that is intended to celebrate the warmth and welcoming spirit of the holiday season, that simple flourish exudes cold, dismissive aloofness.

The backlash has been fierce. Fox News host Jeanine Pirro wrote, “The Washington Post’ hatred for one of the most elegant, beautiful and patriotic first ladies is a disgrace.”

Fashion criticism is great but Washington Post’s fashion critic is almost always just “liberal politicians look amazing and conservative politicians look awful” but even for her, this is a transparently and laughably petty take. pic.twitter.com/Dqpd5XmPdv

Come on @washingtonpost , you make it really hard to keep defending you when you publish this petty trash. And it’s a lovely outfit, but really shouldn’t be the focus of the story. #bebest https://t.co/HPtJYJaLvi

Melania Trump would be on the cover of Vogue if she was a Democrat. Her wardrobe is impeccable and she looks fierce in this jacket.

The media swooned when Michelle Obama wore clothes like these 👇 coming off Air Force One, saying it made her “relatable”. I think I’ll take Melania’s fashion advice, as she always looks stunning! pic.twitter.com/J7wDlvIfOF

Not up on the Beltway’s Christmas etiquette. Does loathing Trump require snarking at the man’s wife too? https://t.co/VZ5U1xOGy9
