inaugurations day is there often a lot of talk about the fashion choices especially for the first lady, and michelle obama was very famous for clothing that she would wear and statement that would be behind it. she was often times making a subtle statement by what she chose to wear or what designer she chose to wear there was attention to what melania trump might wear. when we emerge we figure out what it was, it was by ralph lauren and you will remember pale blue, it was a structured cashmere jacket and mock turtle neck dress with suede gloves all in in that matching sky blue color. that is what we saw her this throughout the day. meantime white house counselor kelly ann conway who managed donald trump's campaign her outfit got attention and a lot of people talking. she arrived in the red, white and blue jacket situated with double row of cat faced buttons. it is a $3,600 wool a-line coat by gucci, she wore a red
hat, matching handbag and gloves and a lot of people talking about that because she had it on when she was interviewed by morning show this morning and throughout the day, and it stood out but ukee, always on this night there is that sat tore qualification part that everybody looks at and wants to know who is wearing what and, of course, tonight at the gala, people eyes will be back on the president and first laidy that is for sure, jessica. what a first lady chooses can make a statement and change life of the designer from the elegance of both, jackie kennedy to michelle obama. looking back, in 2013 mrs. n by jason wu, wu was her choice for her first inaugural night in 2009. oscar delaurenta was label for laura bush in 2005, michael faircloth, director in 2001. hillary clinton sparkled in oscar delaurenta in 197. in 193 she chose designer sarah phillips, barbara bush danced the night away in
arnold sku zi, and jane, designed nancy reagan's, 1985 gown just as he did in 1981. >> how about that. >> i'm counting on you, jessica dean because i have no clue. any guesses or rumors about melania's inaugural gown for the gala. >> if i had to guess would i think ralph lar even owe lauren has been a fair guess. she has gone to him today but in years past and so that would not be a surprise. i will say though that there is a wonderful exhibit at the smithsonian museum that has all of the first lady's inaugural gowns, michelle obama's are there but they go all the way back and fun filth tore look at inauguration and kind of the more whimsical side of it. the more fun side of it. but back to what you were saying about mrs. obama she certainly lifted up so many designers and really whatever she would wear, would then sellout and it made a big
difference. people waiting to see if that happens with mrs. trump. >> well, no doubt, camera will be rolling and flashing tonight. jessica, stand by we will get back in a little bit. no wetter place to get a bit of a history lesson then in the cade will of liberty right here in philadelphia. >> it is always important to have differences because things can be work out, always compromise. >> vittoria woodill gets advice from one of our found ing fathers about taking the reigns of a sometimes divided america, we will be right back.
