Michelle Obama’s designer , Sophie Theallet started a controversy when she wrote a letter saying that she refused to dress Melania Trump.
“As one who celebrates and strives for diversity, individual freedom and respect for all lifestyles, I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next first lady,” she started.
“The rhetoric of racism, sexism and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by. I encourage my fellow designers to do the same,” she wrote.
Some designers answered back in disagreement. “First lady is first lady. It’s a position that should be exalted not disrespected. I can’t believe anyone would basically spit at the opportunity. It’s so un-American,” said celebrity designer Bradley Scott.
However, the joke is on her. Just look at Melania’s style. She has been well dressed and well prepared throughout this whole campaign. She certainly doesn’t need the help of Sophie Theallet. On the campaign trail Melania wore Ralph Lauren, Fendi, Gucci, Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana. The only thing Sophie Theallet did was talk herself out of a job.
