The sleeveless dress, white with a thin belt around it, was covered in black folds that critics compared with a child’s scribbles. According to Paper Magazine, the dress was a collaboration between Alexander McQueen and London art students.
The publication stated that Central Saint Martins students had made impressions of girls dancing during one of their lessons.
These were then hand-embroidered by Alexander McQueen employees to produce the final appearance.
However Twitter users jokingly suggested that Trump may have drawn the lines with a marker.
One wrote: “Melania wore a simple white dress for her evening in North Dakota and before they left Trump she took a marker.”
Another joke, in reference to the president, “Someone will want to take away that marker! Now design Melania’s dress. “
A third added: “Donald Trump was bored and designed all of Melania’s white suit with a marker on Air Force One.”
Sharpie is a very popular marker brand in the United States.

The couple, together with 7000 spectators, then attended a military parade and a fireworks display.
During his speech Trump said: “In our schools, in our newsrooms, even in our corporate meeting rooms, there is a new far-left fascism that requires absolute loyalty.
“If you don’t speak his language, perform his rituals, recite his mantras and follow his commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted and punished.
“Make no mistake: this leftist cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American revolution.
“In doing so, they would destroy the same civilization that saved billions from poverty, disease, violence and hunger and that has brought humanity to new levels of success, discovery and progress.
“To make it possible, they are determined to demolish every statue, symbol and memory of our national heritage.”
However, some commentators criticized Trump for not having been asked to wear masks or practice social estrangement.
In criticizing Melania’s dress, a number of social media users referred to an event last September where Trump was accused of using a film to modify a map of Hurricane Dorian.
One tweeted: “Apparently Trump tried to trace a hurricane path on Melania’s dress.”
Another added: “It seems that Melania also needs #IndependenceFromTrump.
“Now he went off to scribble with the sharpie all over his suit. I thought his sharpie was taken from him after the hurricane accident? “
On Saturday, the President and First Lady celebrated Independence Day with a party in the White House.
Thousands of people gathered in the Washington DC National Mall to witness a military display of fireworks and fireworks.
However, July 4th celebrations have been canceled in many American cities in response to the ongoing coronavirus epidemic.
