Jemima Khan found a unique way to weigh in on the controversy surrounding Donald Trump thanks to a fancy dress outfit that saw the 42-year-old transformed into Melania Trump, complete with a ‘groping’ inflatable doll bearing resemblance to the presidential candidate.

Trump has faced calls to quit his White House bid in recent days, after several women came forward with allegations about the Republican hopeful’s behaviour.

The business magnate stands accused of groping several women as well as behaving in a sexually inappropriate way with women on a number of occasions.

Trump has so far rebuffed these claims as false, but the controversy is showing no signs of dying down with Khan taking the opportunity to highlight them, while simultaneous lampooning the would-be president and first lady in fantastic fashion.

Pictured at the UNICEF Halloween Ball, the outfit also pokes fun at the previous claims Melania plagiarised much of her recent speech from Michelle Obama.

Pictured with a sign that features his campaign slogan “Make America great again! Trump 2016. Vote on 28th November!!!” the outfit was the undoubted highlight of the star-studded bash.

Whether Trump makes it to election day, meanwhile, remains to be seen with several sources leaking footage and audio clips of the real estate mogul making inappropriate comments.

loaded, for example, uncovered a clip from a previous speech that saw Trump regale the audience with a story about how he hired one woman, who lacked the necessary experience, simply because she was beautiful.

Don’t be surprised to see a few more Jemima Khan imitators this Halloween.
