In a interview this week on FOX, soon-to-be president Donald Trump dismissed Tom Ford's statement that he would never dress incoming First Lady Melania Trump, saying he was "not a fan" of the designer's work.
"These designers are saying they don't want to dress your wife--did she even ask Tom Ford?" asked a FOX correspondent during the interview.

"Never asked Tom Ford," Trump replied. "[Melania] doesn't like Tom Ford. Doesn't like his designs. Tom Ford is an example. 'I will not dress the first lady.' He was never asked to dress her. And [real estate mogul] Steve Wynn just called me and he said he thought it was so terrible what Tom Ford said that he threw his clothing out of his Las Vegas hotel. I'm not a fan of Tom Ford. Never have been."

Ford had said in an interview on The View last month that "I was asked to dress her [Melania] quite a few years ago and I declined. She's not necessarily my image." He continues: "Michelle [Obama] I dressed once, when she was going to Buckingham Palace, for dinner with the queen. That I thought was appropriate - I live in London - and that made sense. It was an honour."

Tomorrow will mark the inauguration of our 45th President of the United States, and it's set to be the least-attended inaugural ceremony in years. Many celebrities have boycotted the event, and to throw things into starker relief, the Women's March happening on Saturday in DC is set to have several A-listers performing and attending.
