What began as a post What to Wear to an Inaugural Ball led me to think about what Melania might be wearing. I mused with my pal Parker, who does not share my love of such things, “What do you care?” Hmm, I don’t know but I DO care. So I thought about it. I think our future first lady looks fabulous in white and light shades . . . I think she will go for something fitted, rather that a poufy ball gown . . . it will be simply stunning but not overly embellished . . . and although she certainly possesses a fabulous shape I think she will not show too much skin, allowing the cut of the dress to say it all. Oh and one more thing – the gown should look wonderful from the back for the First Couple’s First Dance. So based on my assumptions, I went shopping. Although I am not bothered by Melania wearing designers from other countries, I was looking for specific American wears, except the shoes, let’s be serious. I was also careful to avoid those designers like Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs who refused to dress Melania. Really? And of course, the Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry Earrings are a perfect accompaniment.
