Melania Trump Is Carrying On A Stylish First Lady Tradition

Melania went with Ralph Lauren for Inauguration Day. She wore pink - the color associated with tomorrow's Women's March on Washington to protest Trump - underneath her white coat.

On a day rife with symbolism, Hillary Clinton stepped out of a auto for the inauguration of Donald J. Trump wearing an off-white pantsuit by Ralph Lauren, who dressed Melania Trump for the same occasion.

First daughter Ivanka Trump, meanwhile, chose Oscar de la Renta, and Hillary Clinton showed up in a white Ralph Lauren pantsuit that harkened back to the one she wore to accept the Democratic nomination for president at her party's convention in July. Melania wore a somber all-black military-inspired coat and matching dress by New York-based designer Norisol Ferrari.

For the most part, the sartorial vibe was largely conservative, keeping in step with the past.

The fact that Melania Trump wore a USA designer seems to go hand in hand with her husband's agenda to increase American manufacturing.

2013: For Obama's second term, she chose a halter-neck ruby red chiffon dress. The new first lady's decision to take authorship of her own gown, creating a dress in partnership with a designer whose name is less well known than hers, seems to speak of confidence and self-belief.

The Steelers have won nine straight games. "I can't say enough about my football team's resiliency", McCarthy said. Brady and Rodgers will duel Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan, respectively, for a chance to go to Super Bowl LI.

Ivanka Trump, Tiffany Trump and Hillary Clinton (of course), wore white.

While a Narcisso Rodriguez dress she wore for President Obama's State of the Union address in 2016, the garment sold out soon after.

"It was very Jackie", said Joe Zee, editor in chief of Yahoo Style. That announcement led to speculation that Ivanka Trump - a fixture on the campaign trail - could fill the shoes of first lady.

The new First Lady has broken with tradition but not moving into the White House straight after her husband's inauguration. Melania teamed up the dress with matching cropped jacket and heels. Melania now live at Trump Tower with Barron, who goes to Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School.

Kennedy Onassis is remembered as a style icon and brought endless glamour as the US's first lady - exerting influence over 1960s fashion and beyond.
