Tom Ford appeared on The View this week to promote his new film Nocturnal Animals, but the topic quickly turned to politics. Joy Behar suggested the “beautiful and …thin” incoming FLOTUS, Melania, would look great in his clothes. Ford, ever the diplomat (Republicans wear his clothes too!) replied,
“I don’t know, I was asked to dress her quite a few years ago, and I declined. She’s not necessarily my image.”
Ford however noted that he voted for Hillary Clinton and is,
“very sad and disappointed that she’s not in office.”
He said that he thinks the first lady should wear clothes that the American people can relate to,
“Even had Hillary won, she shouldn’t be wearing my clothes. They’re too expensive.”
Behar wasn’t letting him get away with that and reminded him that Michelle Obama, while typically more relatable with her clothing choices, also wore expensive items, too ― including a dress designed by Ford.
