Amid scandals of treason and sexual assault lawsuits, one question has reigned over America’s collective consciousness since the election: Whatever will Melania wear? Designers have been severing ties left and right, but finally we have a guarantee that Melania Trump won’t be showing up to the inauguration in last season’s fashions. Well, maybe.
WWD reports on rumors that Ralph Lauren will be designing an outfit for the future first lady. Lauren was a public Hillary Clinton supporter, however, so capitalism rules all. Lauren is also rumored to be working on outfits for other members of the Trump family, though a spokesperson declined to comment about any of it.
In other inauguration fashion news, Marla Maples and Tiffany Trump offered hairdresser Tricia Kelly “exposure,” aka not money, in exchange for her services, even after a $200 fee was agreed upon. Look, Donald is over $1.5 billion in debt to over 150 companies, mainly on Wall Street (drain the swamp!). He needs that $200.
