Melania Trump donates inaugural gown to Smithsonian

Melania Trump donates inaugural gown to Smithsonian

First lady Melania Trump donated her inaugural gown to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History on Friday.

The gown, designed by Herve Pierre in collaboration with Trump, featured a slit skirt, ruffled accent trim from the neckline to the hem and a claret ribbon around the waist.

Ms Trump's inaugural gown was initially caught up in controversy, with a number of designers refusing to dress the First Lady because of her politics.

"Today is such an honor as I dedicate my inaugural couture piece to the First Ladies exhibit at the National Museum of American History", the first lady said in a statement provided by the White House.

The dress will become part of the museum's century-old First Ladies Collection exhibit.

Pierre was formerly creative director for Carolina Herrera, the iconic American designer whose dresses were often worn by first ladies Michelle Obama and Laura Bush.

Trump Launches 'Stand for the National Anthem' Petition
The owners chose to not force players to stand for the anthem, and Goodell was clearly displeased, but supported the decision. Asked about owners who threatened discipline for players who didn't stand, Goodell said the owners didn't discuss it.

"It is now my hope that this piece is one of the many great beginnings to our family's history here in Washington D.C.", the First Lady said.

Shortly after the inauguration, the Smithsonian's conservators begin to work with the White House to ensure the donation process is smooth; they even go so far as to craft a mannequin made to resemble the first lady's physique as closely as possible.

'I wanted someone who would be willing to collaborate with me and Hervé exceeded my expectations, ' she gushed.

A former model, Trump has been closely watched for her fashion choices.

The two got on the phone together and the incoming first lady explained that she needed the dress in under two weeks.
