Melania's white hat and suit earn Beyoncé, Olivia Pope comparisons from Twitter

Apple CEO Tim Cook managed to bag a seat next to France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron during the White House state dinner Tuesday night

President Donald Trump has postponed this week's speech on battling rising prescription drug costs, according to the White House.

The media and the Twitterverse had a big time Tuesday with the first lady's I-spy chapeau, a wide-brim number designed by Herve Pierre that would have been ideal had the sun been out in Washington.

Here's what Twitter had to say about the all-white ensemble, which included comparing her to Olivia Pope.

Other users made other pop culture references.

Others compared the hat to the one Beyoncé wore in her Formation video.


With her first state dinner, Mrs. Trump seemed to be aiming to make a statement.

While it's not common for presidents to invite large swaths of members of the opposing party to state dinners, past presidents have invited a few prominent names due to their work on issues related to the guest of honor, or the White House was courting them to support an agenda item. Information on the First Lady's gown for the occasion, however, won't be available until before the event this evening. Trump said, "Oui", she spoke "un petit peu" of French.

Cook has also developed ties with Trump's daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, both senior advisers at the White House who work on tech training and government IT modernization issues.

In fact, Kirsten Dunst walked the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival in the same gown in 2017 and Millie Bobby Brown wore a white version of the dress in February. But as she stepped out of the background to host her first state dinner, Melania Trump sought to sparkle in her moment in the spotlight. "She's even wearing her white hat", one commented. Everyone is talking about whether Cohen will flip on Trump, Meyers said, and Cohen "isn't saying Trump is innocent, he's saying, 'I would never rat him out.' It's just taken for granted that Trump did something illegal". CNN has reached out to the White House for confirmation that no congressional Democrats have been invited to the dinner and have not yet received a response.

But perhaps the Michael Kors outfit she wore to that speech was most memorable for its stunning price: a $4,995 jacket and a $4,595 skirt.
