Melania Trump is a loyal Dolce & Gabbana fan.
Despite the fact that the luxury fashion house has been facing a major backlash following the release of an ad campaign in China featuring racist stereotyping, the first lady chose a dress from the controversial Italian brand for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday at the Trump family’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla.

The 48-year-old former model is not known for recycling her luxury looks, but for the holiday dinner she re-wore a black tulle D&B midi dress featuring a ruffled lace detail that she previously wore during a trip to Jerusalem, Israel, last May. The fancy frock from the brand’s fall ’16 collection retails for $4,497.50.

For many of her official appearances over the past two years, the former model has opted for luxury pieces from the Italian brand.
Recently, Trump showed off a black wool Dolce & Gabbana coat paired with black pumps earlier this month as she made her way to Brett Kavanaugh’s investiture ceremony.
