A woman dressed as Barack Obama in the inaugural dress was in hot water for the wrong reasons, but her dress is proving popular.
The popular dress is part of a trend that sees women wearing their own personal style of attire at the inauguration.
The dress was worn by US President Barack Obama on Saturday, after a fashion designer created the first version of the dress in 2016.
It has since been appropriated by several people and worn by women in more than a dozen countries including Australia and Canada.
The US president’s first dress, a gown worn during his first inaugural speech in January, was sold out in a single day in February.
In the past, there has been controversy about the dress.
A woman dressed in the gown at the 2017 White House Correspondents Dinner in January.
The New York Times reports that at the time, a dress design firm created a similar design, but a dress designer said it was not inspired by Mr Obama’s appearance.
The White House said that a spokesperson was in contact with the designer and they would be adding an additional option to the dress when it goes on sale later this year.
This is the second dress design that has been made to resemble Mr Obama.
In November 2016, Ivanka Trump was photographed wearing a similar dress, while Melania Trump wore a similar style in January 2016.
The first version was inspired by an image that appeared in a Washington Post article in February 2016 that showed a man with a shirtless Obama holding a sign that read: ‘Obama is our president’.
