During her RNC speech, Melania Trump’s billowy white dress became such a sensation that it sold-out in a matter of hours, so did Ohio Congresswoman Joyce Beatty manage to get one?
During her DNC appearance Thursday night, Beatty wore a dress that was awfully similar to Trump’s $2,190 off-white Roksanda “Margot” dress from online retailer Net-a-porter.
In response to the speculation that she'd worn the same as Melania, Beatty told WCMH that her husband bought her the dress and asked her to wear it.
"Now it's blowing up all over the nation that it's the same as Mrs. Trump's," she said. "I don't know. All I know is that I used my own words when I wore the dress."
It was a reference to claims Melania plagiarized sections of her RNC speech from Michelle Obama.
The internet had a field day trying to figure out if the dress was the same.

While it is unknown if the 65-year-old politician did wear the same dress as Trump’s third wife, reports say that the politician said her husband bought it for her.
