From The Inquisitr
With all the buzz about the wardrobe of First Lady Melania Trump circulating on the web, Melania has folks who are defending her sense of style. As reported by the Inquisitr, when Melania recently chose a $51,500 Dolce & Gabbana jacket to wear overseas, that expensive designer jacket gained Melania both criticism and praise.
A new article from Page Six titled “Melania Trump’s ‘revenge’ on designers who won’t dress her” sheds some light on how Melania chooses the outfits she plans to wear. Despite the designers who have publicly come out to claim that they won’t dress Mrs. Trump, Melania gets around that fact by having clothing delivered to her at Trump Tower, and selecting those clothes that compliment her size and styling the best. The publication notes that deliveries of wardrobe boxes to the lobby of Trump Tower for Melania have increased, according to a source.
“Most days, the lobby is brimming with wardrobe boxes delivered for Melania. Once she tries on the outfits and decides what she will keep, the boxes come back downstairs.”
Famous stylist Phillip Bloch credits Melania’s experience in the fashion world and knowing her own size as the reason she doesn’t need designers to personally dress her, stating that Melania can buy ready-to-wear clothing and still look great.
“She doesn’t need couture. She can buy off the rack, and it looks beautiful. She knows her size, and she knows what works on her. She luxuriates in minimal.”
Melania may not need to wear haute couture fashions, but Internet sleuths are often able to uncover the designers that Melania chooses to don on a frequent basis. As reported by the Inquisitr, Melania wore what was believed to be a Reem Acra sky-blue embellished silk-chiffon gown with a price tag of approximately $4,170.
For other outings during her time overseas with President Trump, Melania went with a $2,730 Roksanda white dress that could double as a wedding dress for modern, city-dwelling brides. Manolo Blahnik also confirmed the shoes Melania wore as a pair of tiger-striped “BB” pumps during the overseas venture.
When Melania was in Saudi Arabia, there was buzz about the khaki shirtdress she wore, believed to cost $1,590. During that same time period, Melania wore a fuchsia cape dress and $675 Christian Louboutin pumps.
Upon landing in Saudi Arabia, Melania’s $487 gold belt stole the show, along with one item of clothing that Melania chose not to wear: a headscarf.
It’s not only the designer shoes, dresses and jackets that Melania has worn that has caught the eye of the public. Melania’s wide-leg wool pants by Ralph Lauren, priced at $1,090, also gained buzz for the sailor pants.
Melania’s wardrobe oftentimes includes the color white, such as the time Melania wore a $3,685 white A-line eyelet dress. Once again Melania coupled the look with designer pumps and completed her outfit with a pair of sold-out $675 Christian Louboutin Lea shoes.
In fact, plenty of the clothing or shoe styles Melania chooses to wear ends up sold out, such as the $2,160 Easter dress Melania wore, a sleeveless Simone Rocha affair. When Melania changed out of her sky-high heels into pink flats that likely worked better for the lawn, it also gained attention for the woman who is oftentimes photographed in stilettos.
When Melania visited a home that shelters children in troubled situations, Melania wore a pair of $1,150 sandals that went viral.
Prior to that viral buzz about Melania’s sandals, Melania wore a sleeveless, daisy-embellished red midi-dress by Valentino that cost $5,490 for the for a dinner at Mar-a-Lago.
Melania’s choice to wear Dolce & Gabbana, such as the $3,575 outfit that Melania wore for her White House official portrait, caused the designer to tell critics of Mrs. Trump to “go to hell.”
