This morning, Friday January 20th, 2017, American businessman Donald Trump was sworn in as the United States of America’s 45th President. His wife, Slovenia-born former model Melania Trump was also formally introduced as our nation’s First Lady.
Speculations grew in the fashion world of who would (and wouldn’t) dress Melania Trump amidst the scandal of her husband winning the highest seat in office. Today, she stuns in an elegant ensemble from a classic American brand, Ralph Lauren.
Her outfit consists of a cashmere cropped jacket and mock turtleneck knee-length dress, pointed stilettos, and suede gloves and clutch, all in powder blue. She wore her hair in an updo, departing away from her usual simple hair down style. Makeup is smokey eyes and soft pink lips.
Her outfit has earned comparisons to Jackie Kennedy’s pale blue suit she wore to her husband John F. Kennedy’s inauguration in 1961.
This is not the first time Melania chose Ralph Lauren design as she also wore a Ralph Lauren Collection jumpsuit to Trump’s final presidential debate against Hillary Clinton. A wise move by the First Lady as Ralph Lauren brand has already secured its place in fashion history, representing patriotism and America in all positive ways.
Here some fun facts: Melania Trump is the second foreign-born First Lady, and the first First Lady to have immigrated to the U.S. She also speaks five languages: her native Slovenian, Serbian, English, French, and German.
Looking forward to what our beautiful First Lady will wear in historic events during the next four years….
