First Lady: Melania Trump channels Jackie Kennedy in an elegant dress and gloves for the inauguration.

Melania Trump, in choosing a robin’s egg blue Inauguration Day dress by an American designer, has channeled iconic First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Many people are making the fashion comparison on and off social media because Jackie O was fond of the powder blue look, and she wore a somewhat similar dress for JFK’s 1961 Inauguration.

There are many different looks that Jackie O wore that remind people of Melania’s Inauguration Day style.

She also wore distinctive neck lines and gloves, raising the possibility that Melania’s Inauguration Day designer, Ralph Lauren, was making an ode to Kennedy Onassis. The New York Daily News described Melania’s blue outfit as being “about sleek tailoring, clean lines and a monochromatic palate,” and reported that simplicity was what helped make Mrs. Kennedy’s style choices work so well.
