After hearing about all the designers that refused to dress Melania Trump for the inauguration, most people have agreed that her outfit was stunning and very obviously reminiscent of Jackie Kennedy. First Lady’s are known to rocket to “fashion icon” status as soon as they enter the White House, just look at Michelle Obama, or Jackie Kennedy. This time should be no different. The classic designer, Ralph Lauren, stayed true to the brand and created a look that celebrated true iconic American style.
If you were one of the many who chose to forgo watching the inauguration, the only thing you missed were some beautiful ensembles worn by the new First Lady.
During the day Mrs. Trump wore a sky blue cashmere cropped jacket over a sky blue mock turtleneck dress with suede gloves and a suede clutch that were also in sky blue. Unlike many times when she wore her hair down, this time her hair was up in a soft updo.
While she didn’t set any new trends, she channeled one of the most memorable first ladies, Jackie Kennedy, and rocked a hue that represented class, charm, sophistication, and timelessness.
If you focused real hard, you may have even been able to time warp back to the 60’s. One of my favorite designer collections was Gucci’s Fall 2014 runway show. I couldn’t help but be reminded of the 60’s inspired colors and shapes from this collection. Do you see the resemblance?
Mrs. Trumps’s evening gown was just as stunning as her day time ensemble. The off the shoulder, cream colored gown was sophisticated, smart, and elegant. While some of her past outfits have been held under controversy for being too sexy (which by the way, they totally were not and people really just need to stop being stupid), this gown was stunningly gorgeous. One of Mrs. Trump’s goals as First Lady is to conquer bullying. Let’s start by not picking a fuss over a beautiful lady looking beautiful and sexy, despite what we may or may not think about her husband’s politics.
All we should learn from the inauguration is that sky blue is the way to go, the off the shoulder trend is here to stay (at least for the time being) and a dress slit can go a long way! Sometimes the smallest details can be the foundation for the most sophisticated look.
