Vanity Fair praised first lady Melania Trump’s butterfly belt as a sign of diplomacy during a meeting with Finnish first lady Jenni Haukio in Helsinki Monday.
Trump, dressed in a $3,700 light yellow Gucci outfit, received a rare accolade from Vanity Fair due to her addition of a butterfly belt. The first lady’s butterfly adornment was referred to as “sartorial diplomacy” due to Haukio’s matching butterfly-inspired dress, wrote Hilary Weaver for Vanity Fair.

“Melania Trump is engaging in some much less high-stakes diplomacy, meeting on Monday with Finnish first lady Jenni Haukio and, whether intentionally or not, matching Haukio’s butterfly-patterned dress with a butterfly belt of her own,” Weaver wrote.
