Melania Trump Fashion: FLOTUS Wears $6,000 Dress at White House Event; Who's Paying for It?

The United States First Lady Melania Trump is known for her “Be Best” anti-bullying campaign. Aside from her official work, her fans are also following her fashion choices.

Mrs. Trump, along with U.S. President Donald Trump, graced the White House Historical Association Dinner on Wednesday. Daily Express reports that the first lady wore a black dress from the Swiss fashion brand Akris that cost $6,000.

Aside from campaigns of the former and current first ladies, the media also takes note of their fashion ensemble during official events. This is true, especially in the case of Mrs. Trump, possibly because she was a known fashion model before taking on the job of being the country’s first lady.

Mrs. Trump and her predecessors are then typically asked who pays for the clothes they wear since it is not strange for them to appear in the signature ensemble. It was previously reported that Mrs. Trump’s clothes she was seen wearing in public in the entire month of March were estimated to be around $26,000.

In 2017, she also made headlines for wearing a $51,500 3D floral jacket from Dolce & Gabbana at the G7 Summit in Italy. Obviously, it was an insane price tag for a single piece of clothing. But in the following year, Mrs’ Trump’s spokesperson Stephanie Grisham told Bustle, “She pays for all her own clothes.”

An earlier report also showed that Mrs. Trump’s fashion choice is a serious matter. In fact, she hired Hervé Pierre to be his stylist after the two worked together on designing her 2017 Presidential Inauguration outfit.

Pierre told the New York Times in 2017 that he also does the shopping when Mrs. Trump calls him to work for her. “I go to Bergdorf, I go to Saks. Michael Kors, Dior. What is challenging is when I cannot say what it is for,” the designer and stylist explained. “I always ask: ‘Was it already on the red carpet? Did somebody already wear it?’ Because I don’t want her to be on the ‘Who Wore It Better list.”
