While both Melania and Michelle have championed American designers, their styles differ greatly, as the outfits they each wore to their husband's inauguration show.

As predicted, Melania Trump wore a Ralph Lauren ensemble for Donald Trump's inauguration on Friday. The 46-year-old channelled Jackie Kennedy in the powder blue suit, which featured a cropped jacket and knee-length dress, accessorized with suede gloves and matching court shoes.
While Michelle also wore a US designer for Barack Obama's inauguration in January 2009, she opted to showcase an outfit from lesser known Cuban-American designer Isabel Toledo, dramatically boosting the brand's profile in the process.

Michelle teamed the bespoke lemongrass coloured dress and matching coat with green J. Crew gloves and contrasting court shoes, creating a memorable ensemble for a historic day.
Melania wore a custom-made white gown by Hervé Pierre. The organza number featured a high-leg split and stunning ruffled detailing, all topped off with a thin red belt and small bow.
The first lady was said to have had a hand in designing the dress with Herve Pierre, who is the former creative director of Carolina Herrera.

Hours after her husband was sworn in as the 44th US President, Michelle made a glamorous appearance at the Inaugural Ball. The then First Lady wore a white one-shouldered chiffon gown from fashion designer Jason Wu.

Jason Wu has grown to become one of Michelle's most beloved designers. She has been seen wearing his designs on a number of occasions including, fittingly, at Barack Obama's farewell address on January 10.
