In news you may not know about because you pay attention to real things, designer Tom Ford said he would not be dressing Melania Trump for the White House because his clothes are “too expensive” for a First Lady and that she should relate more to the people she represents. Or something.
What happened next is some excellent drama, assuming you’re into the whole fashion scene. I’m writing about it because I have a wealth of knowledge that stems solely from my experience watching Project Runway.
Donald Trump went on Fox & Friends and seemed a bit flabbergasted at Ford’s statement, considering (according to Trump) that Ford was never asked to dress Melania.
‘Never asked Tom Ford, doesn’t like Tom Ford, doesn’t like his designs,’ said Trump.
He then went on to say: ‘Tom Ford is an example. “I will not dress the First Lady.” He was never asked to dress – and Steve Wynn just called me and he said he thought it was so terrible what Tom Ford said, that he threw his clothing out of his Las Vegas hotel.
However, his clothing line was never in the store to begin with. Just his beauty line. The Daily Mail, where this story originates, called the Wynn Las Vegas and confirmed that Ford’s products were no longer being carried there.
What is honestly so aggravating about the criticisms of Trump that you see made by celebrities and public figures like Ford is that many of them just make up controversies when there is plenty that is real to criticize him about. Why make things up?
I don’t get it. Was Ford really asked and Trump is now lying? Or was Ford never asked and just wanted a headline? It’s impossible to tell without proof of communication between the two parties.
Melania will be wearing Ralph Lauren on Friday, in case you were wondering. I was.
