Stars, Stripes, and Guns: What People Are Wearing at the Republican National Convention

This week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where Donald Trump was formally named the Republican nominee for president, has been marked by many striking visuals: Trump’s entrance in a cloud of smoke, his wife Melania’s white Roksanda Ilinčić dress, and the row of his adult children — Ivanka, Donald Jr., Tiffany, and Eric — sitting raptly through the proceedings.

On the floor of the arena and outside it, the crowd is just as eye-catching. Yahoo Style is documenting the crowd — both the attendees and the protestors — and talking to them about why they came, what they wanted to say with their outfits, and how they’d feel about Trump winning the election. Above, meet the people we’ve encountered so far in this political microcosm.
