The fashion world recently decided to take a political stance, pushing to boycott Melania Trump. However, the tables are turning after at least one liberal designer publicly refused to dress the future First Lady, and it looks like Melania is going to have the last laugh after all.
As liberal leftists continue their tantrum, unwilling to graciously accept the results of our 2016 presidential election, which saw Donald Trump victorious, his wife Melania has unsurprisingly become an unfair target of their misguide rage. As Mad World News previously reported, Melania’s opposition includes one of Michelle Obama’s favorite dress designers. After clothing the current First Lady for almost eight years, fashion designer Sophie Theallet announced, in true liberal form, that she would be boycotting any potential opportunities to work with Mrs. Trump, automatically assuming in her arrogance that there would be such opportunity afforded to her.
Despite preaching against discrimination, “tolerant” liberal Theallet ironically explained that she’s intolerant of Melania and added that dressing her would go against her beliefs of respecting everyone and honoring diversity. “As one who celebrates and strives for diversity, individual freedom, and respect for all lifestyles, I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady,” Theallet wrote in an open letter on Twitter last week that’s still making waves.
Unfortunately for her, Melania will have the last laugh after Theallet snubbed the next First Lady to make a flawed point. After Theallet’s ignorant and hypocritical grandstand, it seems other designers had a little something to say about it. Apparently, not everyone in the fashion community is onboard with the Melania Trump boycott, and none other than Tommy Hilfiger, a name more widely well-known for fashion than Theallet, put the boycotting designers on blast, pointing out the huge mistake they are making.
The tables have definitely turned with Hilfiger publicly announcing his disagreement with fashion designers who have vowed not to dress our incoming First Lady because of their opposition to her husband. While saying fashion designers should not let politics play into their decisions, he added, “I think Melania is a very beautiful woman and I think any designer should be proud to dress her.”
At an event Tuesday night in New York City, he continued, “Ivanka is equally as beautiful and smart, although she wears her own clothes. I don’t think people should become political about it. Everyone was very happy to dress Michelle [Obama] as well. I think they look great in the clothes. You’re not gonna get much more beautiful than Ivanka or Melania.”
As other designers pout, Hilfiger made his position on the subject unequivocally clear, declaring that he is decidedly Team Trump, and that’s only going to mean good news for him, as well as Melania, who can now laugh in the face of her opposition. While Theallet and others, who likely condemned Christian bakers for not wanting to participate in a religious ceremony for same-sex couples, cut off their nose to spite their face, Tommy Hilfiger may have just bumped himself up to the top of a list of names for consideration as Melania finds herself in need of a show-stopping gown for inauguration day, which happens to be right around the corner.
As Theallet’s name is only becoming known because of bad publicity related to her arrogant and self-righteous stance against our soon-to-be First Lady, Melania can take a little delight in having a designer, who’s so popular he’s been a household name for decades, pointing out how beautiful she is and what an honor it would be for any designer to dress her. If given the opportunity to dress such a classy, elegant, and incredible woman, who will make any clothing look it’s absolute best, any designer should count themselves as lucky to be blessed by such an honor. There’s no better way to show off your design than with the perfect model, who also happens to be the First Lady of the United States.
