We’re just a few hours away from the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States. As President-elect Trump assumes the office, all eyes will be on his wife Melania in her first public appearance as the First Lady. A former model and a lover of all things high fashion, fashionistas around the world have high expectations for Mrs. Trump.
What will Melania’s style be like as First Lady? Many experts are already speculating that she’ll bring a new era of opulence and glamour to the White House. The role of the First Lady has evolved significantly through history, and each woman developed her own signature style to boast at public appearances.
Inspired by the glamour of some of the most iconic First Ladies, let’s take a look at these gorgeous pieces:
A Camelot Dream
You can’t talk about presidential style without mentioning Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Her iconic style and glamorous poise are still revered by designers and trendsetters today. The movie Jackie, which came out late last year, is a signal that this love for Jackie isn’t going to slow down anytime soon.
Are you inspired to live your own Camelot dream? Take a look at this stunning 18kt white gold necklace. It showcases 10.99cts of round diamonds set in rosette groupings to create the look of bigger stones.
In 1980, Ronald Reagan took office with his wife Nancy at his side. A former Hollywood actress, Nancy brought a touch of Tinseltown to Washington, and quickly caught the attention of photographers and stylists. Her trademark was the color red, and she wore dresses and suits in her signature color.
Channel the power of the 80s with these earrings from the Dome collection. This 18kt rose gold pair features 2.08cts of round diamonds surrounding 6.50cts of bright red rhodolites.
A Time for Change
In 2008, Michelle Obama made history as her husband became the first African-American president in U.S. history, and she became the first African-American first lady. Her style made headlines, and included the perfect mix of high fashion and affordable pieces. She kept her jewelry simple, preferring to use statement earrings and her wedding band.
Following Michelle’s example, take a look at these stunning earrings from the Rainbow collection. Showcasing 20.21cts of blue sapphires accentuated by 0.87cts of sparkling round diamonds, their airy and delicate style is perfect for a night on the town.

Soon, we’ll know what Melania Trump’s style will be like as a First Lady, but we can get an idea from her looks during her time in the campaign spotlight. During her public appearances with her husband, she chose to wear a palette of neutrals, including pink, beige, brown, and black.
This ring from the Classic Chic collection takes some inspiration from her color palette. Featuring 0.60cts of round diamonds in a pave setting, this 18kt white and rose gold ring perfectly mixes femininity and glamour, and the unique, handcrafted design shows off every stone.
