A Democratic representative from Ohio stirred up social media Thursday night after she wore a dress very similar to the one Melania Trump wore to the RNC.

Rep. Joyce Beatty of Ohio spoke at the DNC, and people immediately noticed that what she was wearing looked very familiar to something they saw the previous week.

In looking at the dresses, they are very similar - both are white, have ruffles at the elbow and have other similar features. But we can't say for sure that it's the same dress.

Take a look at this photo of Rep. Beatty:

And this photo of Melania Trump:

Most people posting about the similar dresses on social media kept their comments positive in tone:
