Melania Trump Blue Dress & Coat: Who Designed the Inauguration Clothes?

The First Lady-elect drew admiration worldwide for her Inauguration Day style, which started out on Friday morning with a distinctive powder blue dress.

Some are comparing Melania Trump’s style to that of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, especially because Melania wore matching blue gloves with the outfit. Indeed, Melania’s garb was an ode somewhat to Jackie O at the 1961 Inauguration. (See above).

But who designed the blue dress and coat?

American designer Ralph Lauren did, and it’s a custom design, according to ABC News.

Melania, 46, had considered European designers, ABC reported, but opted for an American as the reins of power are transitioned to her husband, Donald. Some top designers had refused to dress the former fashion model because of her husband’s controversial remarks and politics. However, Lauren is one of the United States’ best-known designers and his lines have a distinctive American feel to them.

The high-necked outfit was made out of cashmere.

Donald Trump was also clad in Ralph Lauren, reported ABC, wearing: “a Ralph Lauren Collection cashmere cropped cutaway jacket, cashmere mock turtleneck dress, suede gloves and suede clutch.”

The Sun reported that Melania might be wearing a Lauren gown for the Inaugural balls, although time will tell on that one.

Here’s a video of the couple arriving at St. John’s church on Inauguration Day morning.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was found of robin egg’s blue.

She also wore dresses with a neckline somewhat similar to the one Melania chose.

Ralph Lauren is becoming one of Melania Trump’s favorite presidential designers. She wore a striking white pants suit on election night that was also by Lauren, according to Elle Magazine.

On Inauguration Eve, Melania chose a gold evening gown for a candlelight dinner with donors and a black suit that was an ode to the military earlier in the day.

The reaction on social media to the blue dress was generally positive.

looks a bit stiff. she is NOT Jackie O.
Jackie O. was classy and didn’t show her p*ssy for the world to see like Melania.


Well, not too bad for an ex Escort lady… normally she has the typical expensive-prostitute-look. I would preferred a wet-suit jacket with a skirt in the exact same color, because the color of the whole outfit is indeed really nice. As I said, not to bad considering she always looks very ordinary :D, sorry Melania but I had to say it


Jealous much? What happened to “if you can’t say something nice then don’t say anything at all”??

Human Cobras

No one is jealous of anything married to a dumb*ss like Trump. Mail order brides are nothing to be proud of.


It seems you do not understand the term “mail order bride” She has lived and worked in the US long before she met Donald.


Asshole. Michelle looked like “Jackie Hoe” on this day and belongs in national geographic

Clearly your racist ignorance shows. I see why it’s “anonymous”. You’re an idiot. Michelle has been one of the best dress first ladies since Jackie O.


HA! HA! HA! Way to make an abject ass of yourself you no-class prole. Michelle Obama has spent the last eight years dressed like shit in order to draw the eye away from her wide receiver shoulders, lack of hips and huge penis.

Black Betty

Clearly you personal problems. Perhaps you should get some professional help or medication for that.

Anyone who knows fashion, knows that Ralph Lauren nailed this. A perfect 10.

Human Cobras

nailed it? i’m sure Melania will be nailed by many interns while her husband does the same.
Anyone who knows fashion know that Ralph Lauren is not special either. Try designers
like Rodarte, Threeasfour, Dries van Noten, Lanvin, Vionnet. Then I’d be impressed by someone wearing those brands.


You may not be aware of it but Melania is being dressed by two little known designers that she is bringing to light.


Stunning looking woman, admit it, much of European class and grace. Love her style.
