Famed fashion designer and film director Tom Ford vehemently declined to dress Melania Trump and Hillary Clinton. What could be the reasons of the top designer? Check the details below.
During his guesting on “The View” on Wednesday, Ford gave an honest answer when asked if he would be willing to create clothes for the soon to be First Lady of America. Melania will assume her crucial role on January 20, 2017.
"She's not necessarily my image. I was asked to dress her quite a few years ago. I declined," Ford revealed.
The designer clarified that it’s not Melania and her position that led him to his decision of joining Sophie Theallet as one of the couturiers who will not be outfitting Donald Trump’s wife. Even as a Democrat who supported Clinton in the recent US presidential election, he refused to design clothes for the former First Lady.
"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 — they’re not artificially expensive, it’s the cost to make these things," he explained.
Following Trump’s shocking victory in the presidential race, Melania’s old naked photos resurfaced in the web and were feasted by the press. The provocative snaps were from GQ magazine dated in 2000. Rumors have it that her leaked revealing images are out to destroy Trump’s image as a president.
Ford's luxurious dresses are every celebrity’s dream. Michelle Obama, known for her impeccable style in dressing had worn one of his designs in 2011.
"Michelle I dressed once when she was going to Buckingham Palace for dinner with the queen and I thought that was appropriate. I live in London so that made sense. And it was an honor," Ford acknowledged.
