President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump brought the rest of the family on stage along with Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen at the inaugural balls at the Washington Convention Center on Friday (January 20).
The 46-year-old first lady’s off-the-shoulder white gown was designed by Hervé Pierre in collaboration with Mrs. Trump herself, according to the Melania’s representatives, Women’s Wear Daily reports.
”It’s an honor to dress the first lady,” Pierre said in a statement. ”I was actually lucky because over my 20 years in the U.S., I dressed all the first ladies: Mrs. Clinton at Oscar [de la Renta], Mrs. Bush and Mrs. Obama at Carolina Herrera. So I feel lucky and honored to dress Melania Trump, but this time under my name.”
Pierre, a Frenchman, previously worked for Herrera, who designed Ivanka Trump’s inaugural ball gown. He is currently a freelance designer and not associated with a major fashion house.
