The debate continues between designers who are in favor of dressing Melania Trump and those against wearing her clothes. The controversy began even before her husband won the presidential election, with designers like Marc Jacobs, Phillip Lim and Tom Ford publicly declaring that they would never dress the first lady, while others like Carolina Herrera, Diane Von Furstenberg and Tommy Hilfiger have assured they would have no problem doing so.
The last designer to speak on this matter has been Victoria Beckham, who explained last week at the Forces of Fashion congress organized by Vogue magazine the reasons why she would say yes to lend her designs to the president's wife.
"[Melania] has already worn one of my designs," he said of the navy blue jersey he chose for his visit to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. Of course, as the firm Delpozo already did, one of Melania's favorites in recent months, Beckham has also clarified that it was the first lady who bought it in the store, the brand did not provide it.
“I just think that if any woman chooses my clothes to dress up or invest in me as a designer it is incredibly flattering. I like to make everyone happy, whoever they are, if they want to put on my clothes and I can contribute to that happening and the sample is free, then I would take advantage of that opportunity,”she said.
In addition to the blue sweater that she chose for the press conference that the president gave before heading to Puerto Rico, Melania has also wore other outfits signed by Beckham, such as this tight white dress that she wore in an interview with Anderson Cooper last year.
