First lady wears $51,000 jacket

Melania Trump’s first outing in the Sicilian sunshine was in a colorful floral applique jacket by Dolce & Gabbana that sells for $51,000. She also carried a matching clutch to lunch with spouses of the G-7 leaders, held at the historic Elephants Palace and hosted by Catania’s mayor.

The burst of color in the U.S. first lady’s wardrobe came after a steady dose of mostly black during President Donald Trump’s inaugural overseas tour.

The retail price for the Dolce & Gabbana jacket comes in at about $5,500 below the median U.S. household income of $56,516 in 2015.

Service honors Chris Cornell

Music’s elite and Hollywood stars remembered Chris Cornell at a somber memorial service Friday in Los Angeles that focused on the Soundgarden frontman’s love of family and friends as much as it did on his musical achievements as one of rock’s leading voices.

“Chris was as melodic as the Beatles, as heavy as Sabbath and as haunting as Edgar Allan Poe,” Tom Morello, Cornell’s Audioslave bandmate, said during his eulogy. “The demons he wrestled with were real, but he harnessed those demons and rode them like a mother-flipping chariot of lightning strapped with Marshall stacks to make some of the greatest rock ’n’ roll of all time.”

Ben Stiller, wife separating
