First Lady Melania Trump will donate her inaugural gown to the Smithsonian on Friday, adding to the museum's famous collection.
The Herve-Pierre "couture piece" will be put on display as part of the National Museum of American History's iconic First Ladies Collection. The exhibit already includes notable pieces from first ladies throughout history, including Martha Washington, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jacqueline Kennedy and, most recently, Michelle Obama. Trump's dress is somewhat unique, however, as the former fashion model herself had a hand in its creation.
Mrs. Trump had a "very precise idea of what she wanted to wear" to the inaugural parties. The gown is a cream-colored, off-the-shoulder piece featuring a thin red ribbon across the waist.
The First Lady's communications director Stephanie Grisham said Trump is "honored" to add her special look to the collection.
