This won’t be the first time Trump has worn a Lauren-designed ensemble.
Ivanka Trump, whose new book titled “Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success” will be out in May, told ABC’s Deborah Roberts she will be donating the proceeds to charity.
She has already busied herself working behind the scenes by phoning members of Congress in an attempt to rally support for childcare proposals. including tax-free childcare accounts and childcare deductions for families making under $500,000 a year. “It’s for the public”, she told the Associated Press.
In any event, whoever dresses Trump on Friday, it’s safe to say she will look flawless. If she does, it could be viewed as promoting the brand.
“I’m not a fan of Tom Ford”, Trump said.
“First ladies have been the White House managers, the preservationists who made sure it’s the Peoples’ House, that it’s maintained as a national museum”, said Wagner, “but with Melania’s complete and utter disinterest we are in uncharted territory”.
According to reports, Donald Trump’s wife will only spend a couple of days in the White House after her husband’s inauguration, before returning to NY.
Ivanka also revealed during the interview that she is still close to former first daughter Chelsea Clinton despite her father’s victory over Hillary in the election, and said that she will likely go to her for advice once she settles down in Washington DC next week. Others said they’d be happy to, including Tommy Hilfiger and Carolina Herrera. “While we’ve had daughters fill in for the first lady before – or President Cleveland’s sister or President Buchanan’s niece – that was in the 19th century”, says Brower.
Only one other first lady didn’t move into the White House. Naeem Khan, the Indian-born American designer who often dressed Obama, thinks it’s an important discussion. For stores concerned, it may come down to whose wrath they want to incur: Trump supporters or detractors.
For Ms. Khan, the issue is simply a matter of professional choice.
As for Melania’s wardrobe, speculation abounds as to which designer has been tasked with designing her Inauguration day wardrobe.
“I think it’s an inappropriate observation”.
Add fashion designer Tom Ford to the list of Donald Trump’s feuds.
Whom will Melania Trump pick?
When she wore a Dolce & Gabbana black dress on New Year’s Eve, the first Stefano Gabbana heard about it was when he stumbled across a picture online.
While many may be surprised to learn that Lauren, the outspoken Hillary Clinton supporter (who was dressing the Democratic candidate throughout the campaign as well during her time in the White House as first lady), will be associating himself with the controversial family, Mrs. Trump has always been a fan of Lauren’s. Or perhaps she might, like Obama in 2009, choose to boost the profile of lesser-known designers.
Sharing the role of First Lady would not be unprecedented. “It turned us into a global business”.
If Trump’s style choices during the previous year are any indication, it’s a safe bet to say the future first lady will go for looks that are both tailored, free of embellishments, and monochromatic.
Anthony notes that politics crept into inaugural fashion before, but only after the fact, when an outfit was deemed too expensive in a time of economic hardship.
O, RLY, Donald Trump?
Donald Trump’s two eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, will not be making the move to Washington, but instead Trump transition team officials say they will remain in NY, entrusted with running their father’s vast business empire.
“I like him the way he is”, she replied.
