Tom Ford Says Melania Trump Is 'Not Necessarily' the Image for His Clothes

"I was asked to dress her quite a few years ago and I declined," he said.

In an interview on "The View," Ford said that he actually declined to dress Trump when he was asked quite a few years ago.

"She's not necessarily my image," he said about Trump.

"Even had Hillary won, she shouldn't be wearing my clothes," he said. "They're too expensive, and I don't mean that in a bad way."

"I think to relate to everybody," he continued, "you shouldn't be [wearing such pricey clothing]."

"I think any designer should be proud to dress her," he told the fashion industry magazine. "Ivanka is equally as beautiful and smart, although she wears her own clothes. I don’t think people should become political about it. Everyone was very happy to dress Michelle [Obama] as well. I think they look great in the clothes. You’re not gonna get much more beautiful than Ivanka or Melania."
