Designer Tom Ford has revealed he declined to dress Melania Trump “years ago” because she’s not the right fit for his brand.
The designer made this known on “The View” Wednesday saying;
“I was asked to dress [Melania Trump] quite a few years ago and I declined,” “She’s not necessarily my image.”
The outspoken Democrat, who also revealed that even if Hillary Clinton had won, he would not have dressed her, added that he doesn’t believe any first lady or woman in power should wear his designs because they can cost upwards of $3,500.
“The first lady — other than the fact that I’m a Democrat and voted for Hillary [Clinton] and am very sad and disappointed that she’s not in office — even had Hillary won, she shouldn’t be wearing my clothes. They’re too expensive,”
“And I don’t mean that in a bad way. They’re not artificially expensive. It’s how much it costs to make these things. But I think to relate to everybody, you shouldn’t necessarily [wear such expensive clothes].”
“View” co-host Joy Behar pointed out that Ford did dress first lady Michelle Obama causing the designer to defend his decision to dress Michelle Obama, saying he only did it once when she went to a dinner at Buckingham Palace with the Queen saying:
“That, I thought, was appropriate…and it was an honor.”
