Melania Trump's $2500 Gabriela Hearst dress is leaving Twitter divided

It was a busy Presidents Day weekend for the first family. 

Melania and Donald Trump spent the holiday weekend at Trump's South Florida Mar-a-lago Resort, where the president was spotted golfing alongside acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. The president also traveled to West Palm Beach's Trump International Golf Club for a dinner and took a helicopter to Miami to deliver a speech at Florida International University on international relations with Venezuela and Colombia.

Joining her husband at Monday's event was Melania Trump, who earlier in the day helped open a healing garden and new cardiac intensive floor at Miami's Nicklaus Children's Hospital.

While the 48-year-old looked spring-ready in a floral dress by Gabriela Hearst (which is still available online for $2500!), many social media users did not hold back on her look. 

"Where did Melania get that hideous dress????" asked one Twitter user.

Wrote another, "Did you turn the sofa into a dress? Way to save money, Melania! You can donate the savings to the immigrant children your husband put in chain link prisons!"

However, some were quick to defend FLOTUS and praise how beautiful she looked. 

Meanwhile, others were quick to praise how beautiful she looks, but to bring back attention to the immigration and healthcare crisis. 

 

For more on the first family's visit to South Florida, watch the video above.
