Melania Trump wore a blouse with a "pussy bow" to Sunday night's debate.

As a former model, Melania Trump is no doubt used to turning heads with her fashion choices. But her decision to wear one particular blouse at Sunday night’s presidential debate may be getting her attention for all the wrong reasons. 

The wife of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appeared to wear Gucci’s “pussy bow silk crepe de chine shirt,” according to Marissa Mitrovich, founder of the Washington style blog Politiquette

The blouse currently retails for $1,100 online.

However, it’s not the price that’s raising eyebrows. It’s the blouse’s name, given the disturbing audio released Friday in which her husband could be heard making offensive comments about women.

In the clip, from a 2005 interview, Trump boasted of being able to kiss women because “when you’re a star they let you do it, you can do anything. Grab them by the pussy, you can do anything.”

A campaign spokesperson told Sopan Deb of CBS News that the fashion choice was not intentional.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
