All eyes were on Melania Trump when she joined her husband at Mount Rushmore on July 4 – but perhaps not for the reasons she had hoped.
As President Trump took to the stage in South Dakota to deliver a rally speech to the 7,500 attendees for Independence Day, Twitter users focused on the First Lady’s eye-catching Lady McQueen dress.
Several people stated on Twitter that the $ 2,485 Alexander McQueen looked like Trump was scribbling the fabric with a marker.

“Donald Trump was bored and drew all over Melania’s white dress with a sharpness on Air Force One,” the user wrote.
“Would someone please take that sharpness away from him! Now he’s drawing on Melania’s dress, ffs, ”agreed another.
Another wrote, “Melania donned a plain white dress for her night in North Dakota, and before they left, Trump took a felt-tip pen.”
Several Twitter users said Melania’s dress looked like President Trump was scratching the fabric with a point
A user wrote, “Melania donned a plain white dress for her evening in North Dakota and before leaving, Trump took a felt-tip pen”
Some people used the dress to remember ‘Sharpiegate’, an incident where President Trump seemed to change a hurricane card with a sharpness
Despite the jokes, the designer dress came about after entire McQueen employees created hand-embroidered and stitched sketches over a linen fabric
Some users compared the swirling doodle designs to the infamous ‘Sharpiegate,’ when Trump seemed to use a big sharpie in September to change an official map of Hurricane Dorian.
Apparently Trump was trying to draw a hurricane toad on Melania’s dress, a woman wrote,
“Looks like Melania needs #IndependenceFromTrump too,” one person wrote.
“He left and has now drawn the hairpin over her dress. I thought that after the hurricane incident they took his edge away? ‘
“Looks like Melania needs #IndependenceFromTrump too,” a user joked Friday
The dress reminded some people of Melania’s controversial “I don’t really care, do I?” jacket she wore in 2018

A number of people took the opportunity to remember other trending styles of Melania’s, including her controversial “I really don’t care, do I?” jacket she wore in 2018.
She received fierce reactions to the immigration service, while her husband was bullied for his policy in this area.
While users jokingly pointed out the childish doodles, Paper Magazine reports that the design was the result of a collaboration between McQueen and students from Central Saint Martins in London.
Students drew ‘dancing girl sketches’ on a long sheet during a drawing course led by fashion illustrator Julie Verhoeven.
The entire McQueen staff then embroidered by hand and sewed the sketches over a linen dress.
