There’s a bunch of people on Twitter giving her grief for using coronavirus as a ‘fashion accessory’, but at the end of the day, what’s wrong with colour-coordinating your coronavirus outfit? Especially if we’re in this for the long haul.
No one’s saying that colour-coordinating her mask and dress offers her any extra protection from the disease (although Slovakia currently only has 186 cases, so you never know). If anything it might make fashion-conscious youngsters who are reluctant to wear masks get involved.
Not to mention the choice of colour makes her look like Mileena from Mortal Kombat:

In fact I’m amazed the President of Slovakia thought of this fashion statement before Melania Trump did. Only a matter of time I suppose.
