Remember back in mid-November when fashion designers were lining up to say they had no plans to dress incoming First Lady Melania Trump?
It all began with a butt-hurt
open letter screed from designer Sophie Theallet. [I wrote about it HERE]
Sophie is the fashion genius behind this seizure-inducing frock:
And she doesn’t want to dress Melania.
Thank heaven for that!
Soon other big-name designers like Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs followed suit.
Whelp, the best laid plans…
According to Jean Shafiroff, a socialite who is part of the New York fashion community, not all designers have hopped aboard the “Don’t Dress Melania” butt-hurt bandwagon.
In fact, quite a few are eager to have this lovely, poised and elegant woman don their creations.
Dolce and Gabbana, Zach Posen, B. Michael America, Victor de Souza and Zang Toi — to name a few — would love it if Melania wore their stuff.
(In the interests of full disclosure, I’ve only heard of Dolce, Gabbana and Zach Posen. But then again, I wear T-shirts and jeans, so what do I know?)
Victor de Souza even offered his dresses for free.
See, these guys get what self-important shit-pickles like Sophie Theallet, Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs fail to grasp.
Dressing the First Lady of the United States is excellent publicity.
And, let’s face it. After eight years of having designer dresses hang off the lumpy body of Michelle Obama, Melania Trump is one hell of a billboard.
Sheesh. No contest.
