    Western fashion’s traditionally strict gender delineations have been gathering criticism for some time. It’s come up often in our geek-specific spheres specifically in regard to children’s fashion and fandom-based merchandise, but as a recent article from Mic explores, mainstream fashion has its own struggles with ideas of de-gendering clothing. A few years ago, Zara released a gender-neutral line of clothing. In theory, it was a great step forward for inclusivity of nonbinary and nonconforming people as well as anyone else looking to get away from established gender norms. In reality, though, the line was essentially just male-coded clothing in drab,...

    On Tuesday night, First Lady Melania and President Donald Trump hosted their first state dinner, welcoming the President and First Lady of France, Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron. Following First Lady etiquette, Melania wore a gown designed by a French fashion house, making her state dinner debut in a glittering custom-made Chanel gown with sheer embellished paneling falling from the bottom hem and decorating the neckline. It seems Trump may have taken inspiration from the gown Michelle Obama wore for her first state dinner in 2009—a strapless crème-colored Naeem Khan frock with metallic detailing. While Michelle’s first state dinner was for...

    The day began with a hat. It ended with the hat, too. Not literally, but nostalgically. Over the course of 12 hours, no Cézanne at the National Gallery, no forest of cherry blossom branches, no Clinton or Bush china, no goat cheese gâteau, not even Chanel haute couture could compare to that magnificent halo of pure white light perched atop first lady Melania Trump’s perfectly groomed head. Nothing else mattered. There was nothing else. That hat, broad-brimmed with a high, blocked crown, announced the first lady’s presence as boldly and theatrically as a brigade of trumpeters. It was the bright...

    Vogue magazine, the arbiter of fashion, couldn't get enough of Michelle Obama. The same has not been true of Melania Trump. The New York Post observes: Magazines are showing no love for Melania Trump. The internet was in a tizzy last week when actor James Woods pointed out via Twitter that the first lady hasn’t been a muse for the magazine industry since her husband, President Trump, took office. Woods tweeted: “If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” The tweet, which was accompanied by an old...

    Long before Melania Trump became the first lady of the United States, she was a working model. She started her career when she was 16 years old and living in Slovenia before she uprooted to Milan at age 18. Then, in 1996, her profession brought her to the U.S., where she lived and worked as a model in New York. In fact, it was Melania’s career that essentially landed her at a party during Fashion Week in September 1998, where she met her husband, President Donald Trump. Melania Trump never reached supermodel status. Her former roommate and photographer Matthew Atanian...

    First Lady Melania Trump rocked gold embroidered pumps for a Saturday night date with President Trump at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., ignoring the fallout from late-night host Jimmy Kimmel’s underhanded personal attacks. Mrs. Trump stepped out in an A-line black coat, a silhouette she has repeated during cold weather days, pairing the simplistic ensemble with a baroque, Versace-esque pair of black pumps that featured gold embroidery and a gold heel. The first lady, nor President Donald Trump, have spoken publicly since Kimmel mocked Mrs. Trump’s accent during his monologue last week. Kimmel released a statement on Sunday...

    First daughter Tiffany Trump has unveiled a new White House portrait in which she’s wearing an ivory Gemini dress from one of her go-to designers, Taoray Wang. The photo was taken by White House photographer Shealah Craighead on April 2, during the Easter Egg Roll, where the Georgetown Law student joined her father, President Trump, and other family members. The off-the-shoulder dress received mixed reviews from commenters. While many called her “gorgeous,” “beautiful,” “elegant,” and “stunning,” some questioned if the style was appropriate. “Is this an ironic presentation in some way? Why is the coat off the shoulder? You’re in...

    President Trump and Melania greeted Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu and First Lady Sara Netanyahu at the White House Monday afternoon. The executives couples have had a cozy relationship since Trump’s election. President Trump made Israel one of his first stops during his first international trip as president and stunned the world when he followed through on his promise to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Melania and Sara Netanyahu both wore light blue, incidentally a similar color to that of the Israeli flag. Both presidents were wearing light blue ties. Symbolic? Who knows.
