Photos of Melania Trump gardening in a photo shoot-ready outfit
are going viral, almost a year after the first lady made a public
appearance in Michelle Obama’s vegetable garden. 

In September 2017, the
first lady hosted local schoolchildren
in the White House
Kitchen Garden, founded by Michelle Obama, to help harvest
it. 

Trump wore a Balmain plaid shirt to the event, along with
squeaky-clean Converse sneakers. The shirt was priced at more
than $1,000 at the time, but it has since been
discounted to $690 at Net-A-Porter. 

While the event took place almost a year ago, the photos have
been blowing up as memes on social media over the last few
days. 

Many of the memes pointed out that the first lady looked a bit
out of her natural element in the garden. 

One of Michelle Obama’s best-known acts as first lady was
establishing the garden in 2009. It was a symbol of her efforts
to reduce rates of childhood obesity with initiatives such as the
“Let’s Move” campaign and school nutritional regulations.

In addition to serving as a symbol of her initiatives, Obama used
the garden as a place to showcase her down-to-earth fashion.

Vogue said
in its review of Obama’s 2012 book “American
Grown” that “throughout the book, the first lady, always
beautifully coiffed, wears a different J. Crew sweater to match
the season (marigold yellow for summer, argyle for fall).”

Trump’s garden style is less accessible than Obama’s clothes from
J. Crew and Target. At $690 for a seemingly casual shirt, most
people aren’t likely to run out to copy Trump’s style.
