Twitter tore Karen Pence’s gown to shreds on Thursday night after the wife of Vice President Mike Pence made what the fashion police dubbed a faux pas by wearing a white gown to an Indiana ball.

Karen Pence, who wore a deep blue gown to Friday’s series of inaugural balls, on Thursday attended the Indiana Society Ball in a white dress that was mocked as a “repurposed wedding dress.”
For the record, the dress’s designers shared with an Indiana TV station the details of their creation.
“French Chantilly lace bodice with square cut sleeves attached to an all-over embroidered silk skirt and accented with a mocha satin belt. The bodice was embellished with hand-appliqued lace scallops to follow the shape of the neckline and sparkles with many very small sequins. The 4-inch wide horsehair hem sewn by hand supports the 5-yard span of silk, making it float softly across the floor,” WTHR in Indianapolis reported.
Twitter saw it differently.

@Limeylizzie Karen Pence’s dress is so embarrassing. A repurposed wedding dress? Isn’t there anyone to help her? Melanie is stunning.

If a stylist picked that white lace bridal looking dress for Karen Pence, they need to be fired immediately.#Inauguration

Dress designer Joyce Hittesdorf, who also designed Karen Pence’s wedding dress, said the criticism was as expected as it was unfair, but that the effort was still worth it.

“It’s been a really fun experience, even though not everybody liked it. We knew that was going to happen, but we’re still enjoying it,” she said.
The gowns worn by Pence and first lady Melania Trump to Friday’s inauguration balls will be placed into a collection of gowns worn by first ladies and the wives of vice presidents at the Smithsonian Institute.
