While on “The View,” Fashion designer Tom Ford said he declined to dress Melania Trump when he was asked “quite a few years ago” and said he would decline to dress her today also.
“We’ve got a new first lady, Melania Trump, and she’s quite beautiful, and she’s thin, she’s gonna look great in [your] clothes, no?” host Joy Behar asked Ford.
“I don’t know. I was asked to dress her quite a few years ago and I declined,” responded Ford. “Well, she’s not necessarily my image.”
Ford claimed to be a proud Democrat who is “very sad and disappointed” that Hillary Clinton lost the election to President-elect Donald Trump. He then went on to say “Even had Hillary won, she shouldn’t be wearing my clothes. They’re too expensive, and I don’t mean that in a bad way.”
He said the expensive clothes shouldn’t be worn by high a first lady or female president because they don’t “relate to everybody,” despite the fact that he made a custom gown for Michelle Obama in 2011.
“Michelle I dressed once when she was going to Buckingham Palace for dinner with the Queen,” said Ford. “I thought that was appropriate and I was honored.”
