Tommy Hilfiger has spoken!
Amidst all the election chaos, the designer has come out to encourage his colleagues to dress future First Lady Melania Trump without any qualms.

Speaking with WWD at the Angel Ball on Monday, the 65-year-old said:
“I think Melania is a very beautiful woman and I think any designer should be proud to dress her. 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.”
The statement was in response to designer Sophie Theallet‘s open letter to designers asking them not to dress Melania because of Donald Trump‘s misogynistic, racist, and xenophobic rhetoric.
Tommy is the first designer to respond to Theallet’s call to action, and it’s clear he doesn’t agree with her. Other designers reached for comment by WWD, including Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors, remained mum on the subject.
Well, then! Let’s take a vote, shall we?
