Kamala Harris Wore A Pussy-Bow Blouse For Her Victory Speech And Twitter Thinks It Was A Message To Melania

The pussy bow blouse is back at it again.

From the moment Vice President-elect Kamala Harris took to the stage in Wilmington, Delaware this past Saturday, the world was abuzz about her choice in wardrobe. Of course, while the Vice President-elect’s acceptance speech made its mark on history as one of hope and women’s empowerment, the conversation around her clothing choice was far from senseless. After all, Harri’s decision to wear a white pantsuit and pussy-bow blouse further buttressed her words of achievement, unity, and liberty.

As a show of women’s equality, Harris wore a white pantsuit and pussy-bow blouse for her speech at Joe Biden’s victory rally on Saturday night.

Speaking to a crowd of supporters, Harris credited women before her for her accomplishment. “I stand on their shoulders,” she said referring to thoose who fought for women’s rights and of the “new generation” that exercised their right to vote last week.

Harris’s white suit played an homage to women like Shirley Chisholm, who wore white when she became the first African American woman elected to Congress in 1968. Geraldine Ferraro, who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1979 to 1985 and wore all-white when she accepted the role of Walter Mondale’s running mate for his 1984 presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton also wore a white pantsuit to accept her Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.

Of course, Twitter users were quick to read into Harris’s choice in blouse as a dig at Melania Trump.

As you might recall from the last election soon-to-be- former First Lady Melania Trump wore a bright pink pussy-bow blouse to the second debate between then-presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

“I see your sartorial shade, Kamala, and I am HERE FOR IT,” one woman noted on Twitter.

As a reminder, back in 2016, Melania Trump wore a vivid pink pussy-bow blouse to the second debate between then-presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton amid outrage over leaked tapes from 2005. Just two days prior to the debate, video footage of Trump boasting about “grabbing women by the pussy.”

Viewers believed Melania’s decision to wear a ‘pussy-bow’ blouse was a wily slight jab at her husband.

“Anyone think Kamala’s pussy bow blouse may be trolling trump?” one Twitter user asked. “

“not sure yet re @KamalaHarris but I will say: the combination of the white suit with the pussy bow blouse was a very cool play …” Another commented.

“Kamala Harris’s white pantsuit and pussy bow doing a LOT of symbolic work out here! Dress matters; clothing says things verbally left unspoken,” another Twitter user posted.
