Melania Trump’s inauguration dress is one for the fashion books or should we say fashion bibles. At 5 foot 11 inches, Mrs. Trump owned the room as she stepped on the stage at a candlelight dinner held at Washington D.C.’s Union Station Thursday evening. Donald Trump wore a black suit and white shirt, as for the Slovene-American former model she opted for a gold glittery gown. Mrs. Trump’s gown shimmered like a diamond under the candles and her supporters are very proud.
The long sleeve dress designed by Reem Acra was skin tight – yet looked elegant and even a bit conservative on the next first lady of the United States. Acra, a native of Beirut, is a close friend of the Trump family.
She is famous for her one of a kind wedding gowns and detailed floor-length dresses. In a statement, she said she was pleased to see Melania in one of her creations and added: “The First Lady-elect is wearing the renowned international designer, Reem Acra, to celebrate the 58th presidential inauguration at a candlelight dinner with her husband, President-elect Donald Trump, and their supporters.”
Mrs. Trump’s glam team, who has an entire room in White House dedicated to making her look great, had long brunette locks cascading on her shoulders. Moreover, she wore almost no jewelry other than her large wedding ring.
The makeup was minimal, and so was the future FLOTUS’ speech at the soirrée. As usual, the president did all the talking, well this time around, all the joking.
The 45th president of the United States did something he rarely does – a bit of self-deprecation. The mogul said if it rains as he is being sworn in, the world will finally discover that his odd orange coif is his real hair.
The 70-year-old grandfather said: “It may rain, it may not rain. I don’t care. It doesn’t matter. If it really pours that’s OK because people will realize it’s my real hair. It might be a mess but they’re gonna see it’s my real hair.”
He went to slam Hillary Clinton: “The last two weeks especially, there was something that was happening. They cancelled their fireworks two weeks out. They spent $7 million and cancelled it and that’s because history has proven that if you’re going to lose, you don’t want fireworks.”
There were many familiar faces at the event, which included Ivanka Trump, who selected a black and white Carolina Herrera gown, and Tiffany Trump who went for a stylish silver and ivory Anne Bowen number.
Kellyanne Conway wore a red dress and Caitlyn Jenner was in all black. Designer Rachel Roy, Paul Ryan, Mike Pence, and Jared Kushner were all present.
