SNL Brilliantly Recreated Sarah Palin’s Sold-Out Jacket for Tina Fey Sketch

The wardrobe department went to work on the sparkly beaded bolero

Some fans have said Tina Fey’s impression of Sarah Palin is at times near-identical to the real thing. In her most recent appearance on Saturday Night Live, that similarity went right down to her clothing choice, as the comedian wore a beaded bolero jacket that looked exactly like the one Palin wore to endorse Donald Trump just four days earlier.

The most impressive part? The Milly jacket was sold out, so SNL‘s costume designers had to gin up a duplicate on a tight time frame.

As some have spotted, the real spangly shrug seems to retail for $695; no word on whether SNL could produce its carbon copy for less.
