After Hillary Clinton's primary win in New York, the Democratic front-runner took the stage and gave a victory speech that addressed issues surrounding income inequality.

Now Clinton is taking heat for what she was wearing during the speech -- a Giorgio Armani tweed jacket worth a staggering $12,495.

According to the New York Post, Clinton has upgraded her closet in attempt to look more relatable -- but it came with a huge price tag. It's estimated that Clinton has spent $200,000 on new clothes to wear on the campaign trail.

But social media users aren't buying it, condemning the choice to wear such an expensive jacket given the content of her speech.

While Clinton has been criticized for her designer fashion choice, she also has her defenders.

She joins a list of politicians who have been known to spend big bucks on fashion including Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin, and even Donald Trump.
