Celebrity designer, Tom Ford was recently interviewed on ABC talk show The View. During the interview, he was asked on whether he’ll like to dress Melania Trump. Amazingly, his reply was negative
A cautious looking Ford paused for a moment before responding to the question, saying: “I don’t know. I was asked to dress her quite a few years ago and I declined.”
He revealed that he would also not be dressing Melania even in the White House, saying his clothes are ‘too expensive’ for a first lady to wear because they have to ‘relate to everybody.’
Recall that Tom Ford had dressed Michelle Obama in a custom-made ivory evening gown back in 2011, for a dinner with the royal family at Buckingham Palace. The price of the one-of-a-kind dress was not stated but Ford’s gowns tend to start around $5,000.
When prodded a bit more about whether Melania should really stop wearing expensive clothes once her husband takes office, Ford simply said: “I’ll leave that to Melania.”
