Michael Kors Discusses Melania's Congressional Outfit: It Reflects 'Glamour She is Known For'
She wore the outfit to her husband's address to Congress.
The designer of that sparkling, sequined evening suit worn by the first lady at President Trump's speech to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night is opening up about the unique garb.
Michael Kors, a noted Hillary Clinton supporter, has taken some heat for Melania Trump’s fashion choice, but wanted to make it clear that he didn't personally dress her for her appearance.
"Mrs. Trump has been a longtime client at our New York boutique," he told Inside Edition. “She has a keen understanding of what works best for her and her lifestyle. My embroidered black suit reflects the streamlined glamour that she is known for."
It was fresh off the runway and won't be in stores until next fall.
The suit had hand-embroidered, sequined flowers. Mrs. Trump wore it with a wide belt and chose not to wear a blouse underneath the jacket.
Reaction to her outfit was mixed.
"Beautiful tailored ensemble, elegant and chic," read one post.
"Melania was radiant and stunning," another person tweeted.
Someone else suggested that her suit would be OK had she been "attending the Oscars."
