First Lady Spotlight: Powder Blue Power Suit


History was made today as the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, was inaugurated into office. But, before President Trump was even able to make his official Presidential speech at exactly 12pm EST today, pictures emerged of the President and First Lady on their way to a traditional church service.

Aside from any and all of the political talk set forth for today will be the fashion. We were all on the edge of our seats waiting to see what Melania would make her First Lady debut in. Rumors were spurring about as we all waited to see which designer would be dressing the First Lady. To be quite honest, I am still not sure of what designer ended up being the lucky winner to dress our First Lady. What I am sure of is the color of her debut suit.

We’ve seen this style in the past, most notably by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, as mentioned, during her time at the white house. She was ahead of her time in terms of fashion but kept a classical elegance about her “power” outfits that is leading others to clearly replicate her iconic style for years to come.

Since Melania’s debut to the world as First Lady only a few hours ago, the world is buzzing about the powder blue suit. This color of the year is certainly going to outshine what Pantone has already dubbed as a color of the year. You could say that Melania’s first initiative as First Lady of the United States has become the introduction of the now iconic powder blue suit.

This color is not going anywhere so channel your inner First Lady and rock this look at your own special event. Not many of us will be lucky to serve our country as a First Lady, but we can certainly channel the style of Melania, our current First Lady, and the style of the First Ladies who preceded.



Lucky for all you Glam & Gowns readers, Faviana is always doing extensive research to stay ahead of the trends that present themselves at moments like these. Of course, we cannot take all the credit for the First Lady’s color choice at the Inauguration but what we can say is that we are prepared for you!

Faviana has created quite a few style options with the now iconic powder blue color as a choice. Faviana Style 7755 is one of our most popular styles because it comes available in so many divine colors, with powder blue being one of them! This style is great for any formal event you may be going to such as prom or a wedding.
