Well, I think it’s fair to say we saw this coming.
Back in November, fashion designer Sophie Theallet sent out an open letter to all her fellow fashionistas. She urged them not to provide dresses for the incoming First Lady.
And since some of you are probably asking yourselves, “Who the hell is Sophie Thealett?!”
Let me give you a visual aid. Sophie is the one who designed this seizure-inducing frock:
At the time, I wrote:
I have no doubt it will all come back to bite them in the ass.
In the end, they’ll look like the fools that we already know they are.
Guess what? I was right.
And all it took was First Lady Melania’s first foreign trip.
Now these fickle fashionistas are suddenly changing their tune.
Golly. I wonder why?
Could it be these fashionistas are green with envy over all the press these Dolce & Gabbana designs are getting?
Or maybe they suddenly realized that First Lady Melania is one hell of a canvas to showcase designs.
You know. Unlike Michelle.
So imagine my complete lack of surprise when I saw this Page Six headline:
Melania Trump’s ‘revenge’ on designers who won’t dress her
Melania Trump is proving to the fashion designers who said they wouldn’t help her that dressing well is the best revenge.
Eat your heart out Sophie Theallet.
Melania Trump doesn’t need you.
From the Post:
The first lady’s trip to Saudi Arabia, the Vatican, Belgium and Sicily — wearing mostly Dolce & Gabbana — was a fashion tour de force that has forced many naysayers in the rag trade to rethink.
“There is a softening, a melting,” stylist Phillip Bloch told me. “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.”
Deliveries to Trump Tower have picked up. “Most days, the lobby is brimming with wardrobe boxes delivered for Melania,” a source told me. “Once she tries on the outfits and decides what she will keep, the boxes come back downstairs.”
Who didn’t see that coming?
As the Post writer puts it, “Not since Jacqueline Kennedy has there been a first lady who needs less help.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Or, as Phillip Bloch put it:
“She doesn’t need couture. She can buy off the rack, and it looks beautiful,” Bloch said.
Come on. She could wear a potato sack and still look stunning. Let’s be honest here.
“She knows her size, and she knows what works on her. She luxuriates in minimal.”
Sanctimonious threats not to provide your designs to a First Lady don’t have much teeth when the First Lady in question is Melania Trump.
Unlike Michelle Obama, Melania doesn’t need these fussy, fickle fashionistas to look good.
[And here’s the Schadenfreuderiffic part.]
…these fussy fashionistas sure as hell need Melania.
