DE­SIGNER TOM FORD: ME­LA­NIA TRUMP 'NOT NEC­ES­SAR­ILY MY IM­AGE'

Kuwait Times - - WEEKENDER -

Fash­ion de­signer Tom Ford says first lady-to-be Me­la­nia Trump likely won’t be wear­ing his clothes in the White House. Dur­ing an ap­pear­ance on “The View” on Wed­nes­day , Ford said he had been asked to dress Me­la­nia Trump “quite a few years ago” and de­clined be­cause “she’s not nec­es­sar­ily my im­age.” Ford says he is a Demo­crat and voted for Hil­lary Clin­ton in the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, but added that even had Clin­ton won, she shouldn’t have worn his clothes be­cause “they’re too ex­pen­sive.” He says his clothes cost a lot to make and the pres­i­dent needs to “re­late to every­body.”

Asked if Me­la­nia Trump should wear ex­pen­sive clothes, Ford replied: “I’m go­ing to leave that to Me­la­nia.” De­signer So­phie Theal­lat wrote an open let­ter last month urg­ing col­leagues not to dress Me­la­nia Trump.
