Fashion makes many statements on Inauguration Day!
We might not agree with their politics but one thing we can agree on is Melania Trump left the White House in high, high fashion.
Her all-black ensemble and upswept hair are reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany. Although her color choice -— straight-structured silhouette -—communicated a funeral-attendance vibe, I loved her outfit.
Contrast this with the purple power that was happening at the Capitol for the inauguration of Joesph Biden.
American Design was on full display with Michelle Obama. Although I don’t like to compare Michelle Obama to Melania Trump. These women are not even in the same stratosphere. I don’t mean this in any ill way but comparing the two it is like comparing Kiwis to Mangos.
Michelle Obama understands her power and Melania I feel is not sure if she has any power other than spending power.
