First Lady Melania Trumpís State Dinner Gown Dazzles Fashion World (kudos from Soho, Manhattan!)

WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBSNewYork) – President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania hosted their first state dinner at the White House on Tuesday.

Now, the first lady’s clothes have more than just fashion experts talking.

Many of the items at the retail store Necessary Clothing in SoHo, Manhattan are influenced by celebrity styles — with price tags most can afford. Soon, the store’s assistant buyer says you may see their selection turn a little bit more presidential.

“After seeing Melania’s stunning, masterful piece… That is something I hope one day we get to carry at Necessary Clothing,” said Leeanna DeSimone.

The dress she’s referring to is a CHANEL gown that sparkled and stole the show.

“Melania is really bring it to us. She is a fashion icon in my eyes,” DeSimone said.

“I think that style was very elegant,” one man said.

“It was very nice, chic, it was cute. I liked it,” a woman added.

The first lady wore a Michael Kors blazer and skirt to the arrival ceremony, which you can buy online for nearly $2,000, along with a custom-made white brimmed hat by Herve Pierre.

The dress Melania wore to the state dinner was donated to her from CHANEL and will be gifted to the National Archives.

Melania is her own designer.....her gown actually appeared on the runway as a jumpsuit....but Melania had it redesigned to her specifications.

I thought her white Michael Kors outfit was stunning. And that dress? I’m too short to pull that length off, but I’d love to have that dress if it was at the knee or a little shorter. Absolutely beautiful.

I don’t know if Michael Kors designed that outfit especially for her or not, but kudos to him if he did!

I think I read a while back that other designers refused to dress Melania(Because they are dipsh*ts) but that Michael Kors was happy to do it..there is also another designer that supports Melania but I forgot his name. Our first Lady is absolutely STUNNING..she is beautiful, smart, and loves being around children(Images of her being at children’s hospitals) she is so sweet God Bless her!

She could wear a burlap bag, redesign it and make it fashionable. She often does that with the garments she selects or designed for her. Additionally she knows well her frame....It isn't just that she's been a model......she's learned 'how' to look her best and 'what' style is best for her frame.

Her feet must really hurt at the end of a day.

Having said that, she’s gorgeous.

Yeah....the jumpsuit’s gloves and the hair thing are much too much.

Dolce and Gabbana have done a lot of her clothes.....
and publicly cursed out other designers for not wanting to dress her.

Caroline Herrara has also dressed Melania......and Ralph Lauren, as well.

Anything looks good on Melania. Thank god for her instead of the Hildabeast and her never ending pant suits.

What? But I thought she was wearing aluminum foil; that’s what some of the snarky comments said!

It definitely looks better as a gown. But the jump suit comment explained those two lines at the waist that looked an awful lot like pockets ;)
