Melania Trump’s fashion sense is at the highest level no matter what. Before her husband became President- elect, many fashion designers who favoured the opposite candidate told the press that they would not dress Lady Melania Trump as the first lady.
But, according to some now, after becoming the first lady, Melania is proving that dressing well is the best revenge against those comments. She proved that and her sense for fashion on the nine- day trip from Saudi Arabia to Sicily.

Writing for Breitbart, John Binder called her the “breakout star of President Donald Trump’s first trip abroad, stunning fashion industry observers by wearing only the highest quality in high fashion.”
On Friday, she wore a floral jacket that retails for $51,000 to the G7 summit, and drew support from The Washington Post for her choice.
“Trump’s choice of Dolce & Gabbana — an Italian brand that has been deeply inspired by Sicilian culture — for a trip to Sicily makes sense,” wrote Robin Givhan in The Post.
“Gabbana also has been quite vocal and enthusiastic in his willingness to associate his brand with the first lady, something many designers have not been comfortable doing because of her husband’s policies and temperament. Trump has worn the label multiple times on her inaugural foreign trip,” she wrote, adding one final comment:
“And frankly, the floral coat is beautiful,” Givhan wrote.

Melania Trump’s successes are changing attitudes among designers.
“There is a softening, a melting,” stylist Phillip Bloch said. “Fashion people are fickle and fake. They are starting to see she is a beautiful woman who is married to the president, and it is an honor to dress her.”
“She doesn’t need couture. She can buy off the rack, and it looks beautiful,” Bloch said. “She knows her size, and she knows what works on her. She luxuriates in minimal.”
NewsTalk Florida summarized the first lady’s trip as a success.
“No first lady since Jackie Kennedy has had the fashion sense that Ms. Trump has displayed,” it wrote. “She has done a wonderful job of picking just the right outfit for each of the major meetings and has been the ‘charmer in chief.’”
The clothing that she wears is never awkward and weird. They are indeed sophisticated and beautiful as her. She is without doubt very attractive without being over decorated.
