How will Melania handle the loss of Michelle Obama’s fashion designer?
Can you believe that “fashion designer” Sophie Theallet considers not designing dresses for Melania Trump a slam? Talk about a pre-emptive strike. As if Melania Trump would hire that hack to dress her.
Has this chick actually seen the crap wardrobe she’s made for Michelle Obama? One of the perks of becoming First Lady is not to look like the homeless.
“Designer Sophie Theallet isn’t a fan of President-elect Donald Trump and has announced she’s refusing to dress the next first lady, Melania Trump.
“As one who celebrates and strives for diversity, individual freedom, and respect for all lifestyles, I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady,” Theallet wrote in an open letter she posted to Twitter on Thursday. “The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by.”
Theallet, 52, is a French-born designer who grew to prominence by dressing current first lady Michelle Obama on a number of occasions.”
If Michelle Obama can get a designer prominence, what do you think Melania could do for one’s career?!
For Melania to use Michelle designer would be a BIG, HUGE, no YUUUGGE step down, fashionably speaking.
Though Theallet currently uses this publicity stunt to make people believe she is in high demand, it’s only temporary. She will be gutter trash soon enough. Furthermore, you can believe that designers will smother their grandmothers to design for Melania Trump, not that she needs it.
Within hours of Melania’s speech at the RNC convention, her chic white sheath dress with balloon sleeves had sold out online.
Priced at $2952, the gown was a powerful choice for the now soon-to-be First Lady – subtly sexy, unabashedly modern and a clear style statement.
And as The New Daily reported,
The gown was created by Roksanda Ilincic, a Serbian-born, London-based designer who emigrated from Belgrade in 1999.
Her brand, Roksanda, has had a swift rise to success since its fashion week debut in 2005 – Kate Middleton is a fan – and Melania’s recent outing undoubtedly added to the hype.
In the past, Melania has admitted to selecting her own campaign clothing, and her choice of this particular gown was clearly strategic. She reportedly even purchased it herself on Net-a-Porter, rather than going through the traditional avenue of a stylist.
That’s right. Melania selects her own clothes, and even buys them herself. You can do that when you have style and tastes.
