The suspense surrounding what the incoming first lady would wear for the events of Inauguration Day built over the last several months as several designers spoke out saying they wouldn't be willing to dress Mrs. Trump.

Most recently, designer Tom Ford spoke about declining the opportunity. President-elect Trump responded telling Fox and Friends, "[Melania] never asked Tom Ford, doesn't like Tom Ford, doesn't like his designs ... I'm not a fan of Tom Ford, never have been."

Others, including Tommy Hilfiger, were much more welcoming to the idea. Hilfiger even telling Women's Wear Daily, "I think any designer should be proud to dress her."

The first daughters both chose white for the swearing in ceremony. Ivanka Trump chose an asymmetrical Oscar de la Renta white jacket and tailored white pants with black pumps. She accessorized the outfit with a small a American flag pin and black leather gloves. It was her third ensemble from the designer in the past two days.
