Karlie Kloss, fresh off of going viral thanks to a Kushner affiliation reminder on Project Runway, addressed all that on an episode of Watch What Happens Live this week.

"I was honored to be one of the first memes of the decade, but honestly the real tragedy of this whole thing is that no one is talking about how terrible that dress was. ... And no, I would not wear that dress to any dinner," Kloss said of the Josh Kushner marriage reminder, which was delivered by exiting contestant Tyler Neasloney.

From there, host Andy Cohen asked Kloss to clarify whether she was "on the same page politically" as the Trump-aligned Kushners. 

"Andy, I'm sure I'm not the only person in this country who does not necessarily agree with their family on politics," she said. "I voted as a Democrat in 2016 and I plan to do the same in 2020."

The Project Runway moment, embedded above for easy revisiting, saw Neasloney being told by judges that they simply couldn't see Kloss wearing his dress design out in public. In response, Neasloney asked "Not even to dinner with the Kushners?" and promptly went down in 2020 viral history.

In a tweet shared after the episode started making the rounds, Kloss did not address the Kushner bit, choosing instead to simply wish the contestant "all the best" in the future.
