When an 8-year-old from Alabama was asked to dress up as her favorite First Lady of the United States for a school project, she immediately chose the accomplished Melania Trump and didn’t just pull it off, she managed to capture the precise image of the First Lady during her husband’s historic inauguration.
As a call back to the days of Jackie Kennedy, Melania Trump wore a sky blue Ralph Lauren ensemble that included a cashmere cropped jacket and mock turtleneck dress, suede gloves and clutch, all in sky blue. Melania arrived at the inauguration with a gift that matched her dress, handing Michelle Obama what seemed to be a Tiffany’s box as she greeted the outgoing First Lady on the steps of the White House.
The young student chose to mimic Melania’s acclaimed outfit, which turned out impressively close, which included a power blue slip dress, three-quarter-sleeve wrap jacket, matching shoes, gloves, and pearl earrings. She even added a copy of the blue Tiffany’s box with white ribbon, which matches the gift that Melania gave to outgoing First Lady Michelle Obama.

Melania Trump’s sense of fashion isn’t the only quality for young women to emulate, as she immigrated to the United States legally, began her modeling career at the age of 16, started her own line of jewelry and is fluent in 5 different languages. All qualities that make her much more than just a fashion icon, but also an intelligent and strong willed woman.
All politics aside, even critics of Donald Trump can appreciate a young girl’s role model and passion in looking up to our country’s First Lady for inspiration, right?
