Now that the inauguration is over, who won the fashion prize?

There was a lot to choose from. Obviously, First Lady Melania Trump drew a lot of the scrutiny – and praise – with her cream-colored inaugural ball gown and her blue coat/dress during the day.

But were they your favorite? At the end of this post, vote in our poll for your favorite inauguration gown, dress, or coat ensemble. Did you prefer Ivanka’s princess gown by Carolina Herrera or Melania’s gold ball gown? How about Tiffany Trump’s silver-pink number?

Before you vote, let’s revisit the possibilities:

The night before, she wore a gold form-fitting ball gown by designer Reem Acra to an inaugural eve candelight dinner with donors:

Dazzling in Gold Melania Trump brought out the gold when she donned her first formal dress of the Inauguration. Melania and her husband, President Elect Donald Trump, joined Mike Pence and his wife, for a formal dinner. According to USA Today, Melania chose the "long gold Reem Acra column dress" for the candlelit dinner, which took place with top campaign donors at Union Station in Washington D.C. Donald Trump will be sworn in on Friday, January 20, 2017 as the 45th president of the United States. Melania Trump is his third wife. A former fashion model, she is widely expected to become a style icon in the White House (although she chose a much more understated look for earlier in the day on Inauguration Eve). The Trumps arrived in Washington D.C. from their New York home at about noon on the East Coast, disembarking from a military plane in Maryland and then heading into the city for a series of festivities, such as a visit to the Lincoln Memorial and a wreath-laying ceremony. The dinner was much anticipated by fashion watchers curious to see what the soon-to-be First Lady would wear. Of course, the big events will be Friday night when the Trumps make their way to multiple inaugural balls. The daughter of Trump, Ivanka, also made style waves on January 19 by donning a unique green coat and dress outfit for the outdoors events during the day and a white-and-black gown for the donor dinner later in the evening. Outside protests raged throughout the city and security was massive.


During the day on inaugural eve, for a visit to the Lincoln Memorial, Melania wore a black coat/dress by designer Norisol Ferrari that was supposed to be an homage to the military.
