Melania Trump's first lady fashion: See what (and who) she has been wearing

Share this:

First Lady Melania Trump is already showing that she has a clearly defined style sense of style. "I like to dress nicely. I always say that it's easy to put on a nice dress," President Trump's wife told HELLO! back in 2011. "Sometimes, you’re in a hurry and you put on the t-shirt and slacks and beautiful jewellery and drop off your child at school. You don’t have time to do hair and make-up and get ready completely."

Here's what has been in the former model's wardrobe since she officially became America's first lady.

The sparkling skirt and jacket, which together retail for $9,590, are by one of the first lady's favorite designers, Michael Kors.

On January 21, the day after her husband's presidential inauguration, Melania stepped out to the National Prayer Service sporting an understated cashmere coat, which was a collaboration between herself and Alice Roi. "She definitely knew what she wanted. She knows clothing well and she’s very direct. She has a wonderful, chic sense of style. That's something no matter what you put on her she kind of exudes. It's very guiding for the designer because you know exactly what to do to get in line with her right away," Alice told WWD.

In what is likely her most-anticipated appearance to date – the inauguration balls on January 20 – the new first lady wore a sleek off-the-shoulder vanilla crepe gown that featured a slit. The elegant design was a collaboration with Hervé Pierre, the former creative director of Carolina Herrera.

Hervé revealed that the creation was a reflection of Mrs. Trump's personal style. "She knows what she likes," he said. "Our conversations were, and are, very easy. She knows about fashion, as a former model. She is aware about constructions, so we have already the same vocabulary when it comes to designing a dress.”

For her debut as the nation's first lady, Melania channelled former first lady Jackie Kennedy. Barron Trump's mother's Inauguration Day outfit was a hint of the simple and chic silhouettes to come: a Ralph Lauren doubleface jacket that featured a collar cutaway and matching mock-turtle dress.
