The House minority leader, and likely future speaker of the House, made headlines when her meeting with Trump erupted into political fireworks around the topic of border wall funding.
After the meeting, Pelosi buttoned up in her bright-hued MaxMara jacket, popped on some sunglasses walked out of the White House to face the press alongside Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Photos of her fashion-forward exit quickly went viral across social media, with the coat taking center stage and hundreds coveting over the bright-colored, classic statement piece.
A parody account, in the voice of the coat itself, was started on Twitter.
The coat’s designer was eventually identified by eagle-eyed fashionistas online as MaxMara, and the fashion label put out a statement on Facebook Thursday saying they are “honored” that Pelosi wore their coat “to her recent historic meeting at the White House.”
“This boule shaped, funnel collar coat represents lasting values and projects both personal strength and glamour,” the Italian fashion house added.
Pelosi’s daughter, Christine Pelosi, tweeted that her mother originally bought the coat for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration. Many on Twitter eventually pointed out that she wore to that event as well.
MaxMara did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment, but Glamour reported Wednesday that MaxMara will be bringing the coat, originally from their 2013 collection, back to stores in 2019.
