Tony European labels have been more Mrs. Trump's de rigueur, until Thursday's trip to a Texas center housing some of the more than 2,300 migrant children sent there after their families entered the US illegally.
No one's gonna argue with her decision to make the trip, but her wardrobe selection's a whole other story.
