Even Tina Fey Couldn't Nab Sarah Palin's Sold Out Sweater for SNL, So She Had an Identical One Made (VIDEO)

Live from New York, it’s Sarah Palin’s spangly, sparkly sweater. Actually, it’s just a really good replica.

Remember the embellished Milly topper the former governor of Alaska donned to endorse Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump? (Of course you do.) Well, the funny people over at Saturday Night Live couldn’t get their hands on the sold out style, which is why they re-created the embellished topper for Tina Fey to wear during the opening monologue of Saturday’s episode. (Bonus points if you can spot any differences, because we can’t.)

She's baaack! 🇺🇸 #LiveFrom8H #SNLBackstage #SNL

While the former governor’s statement sweater was a product of contemporary designer Michelle Smith of Milly, Fey turned to the creative minds of the weekend sketch comedy show for an almost identical (and equally as sparkly!) design. (See the design team work their magic on the piece in the video, below!)

No matter what you think of the conversation-starting topper, we happen to think Fey and Palin sported the statement number with pride, and as always, style. So tell us: Who wore it better: Sarah Palin or Tina Fey?

Sarah Palin is getting absolutely matronly and has gained weight. Tina who I believe is only a couple of years younger looks great.

I can’t stand Tina Fey. Sarah is much smarter, classier, and prettier even if she is endorsing the despicable Trump.

Intheknow on

I absolutely detest Fey and always have. She was NEVER funny IMO and I don’t know why she became so popular. She just leaves me cold.

Tina Fey couldn’t wipe Palin’s boots.
Is that all the woman does, make fun of someone far superior to her?
No class at all, Tina.

PCC, Palin looks much better than Tina Fey ever did. Palin is as beautiful as she’s always been, so you might want to get your eyes checked or drop the hate.
When Palin is 100, she’ll still be prettier than Tina Fey.

Looks like Palin’s family and friends are out in full force on this thread. LOL

People PLEASE delete the comment making fun of Sarah Palins little boy with Down Syndrome. No matter what you think of her… that is NOT ok at all.

It would have been much funnier — and more accurate — if Fey had had the spangles, or whatever they are, replaced with bullet casings.

The original sweater is hideous, as is the invective of the person who wore it.

Love Tina Fey! Saturday’s SNL performance was funny!!

Gretchen on

I thought those were bullets hanging off that outfit.
