At the inaugural ball, she shone in a princess-like gown featuring a tulle skirt and sheer long sleeves embellished with crystals.
The businesswoman and Herrera have been friendly for years. In November 2015, Herrera presented Trump with an award at 19th Annual Accessories Council ACE Awards. A year later, the entrepreneur posed on the cover of Town & Country magazine in a pink, gauzy Herrera dress while pregnant with her third child.
Trump has also made a point of attending Herrera’s fashion shows during New York Fashion Week.
While designers are divided on whether or not to dress first lady Melania Trump, Herrera supported her. “I think that in two or three months, they’ll reach out, because it’s fashion. You’ll see everyone dressing Melania. She’s representing the United States,” she told Business of Fashion.
