So far there is no word on who Ivanka will be wearing for her father’s big day on Friday, January 20. Melania on the other hand is rumored to be working with two of the biggest names in the fashion industry.


According to Women’s Wear Daily, American designer Ralph Lauren and Karl Lagerfeld are reportedly in the lead for dressing the future first lady for the inaugural celebrations. Ralph Lauren has dressed former first ladies Betty Ford, Nancy Reagan and Michelle Obama. Meanwhile, Karl has not designed for a first lady, making it a first should Melania pick him for her husband's inauguration celebrations.
