With less than 24 hours to go until Donald Trump‘s Inauguration, anticipation and anxiousness have reached a fever pitch. People around the world are wondering how America will change, what kind of President the former reality star will be and if their lives will be forever altered in the aftermath. Meanwhile, fashion insiders are abuzz over how Melania Trump will (metaphorically) fill the oh-so-stylish shoes of Michelle Obama.
Officially 2 days till Inauguration! 🇺🇸 #inauguration #countdown #melaniatrump #melania #donaldtrump #trump #trumptrain #maga #makeamericagreatagain #nyc #dc #presidenttrump #flotus #beautiful #model #love #photography #follow #fashion #style #triggered #classic #harpersbazaar #photoshoot #draintheswamp #45 #2017 #nobama #yourefired
The incoming FLOTUS must have been a bit worried about that too, because as her first order of (unofficial) business, Melania has requested a personal glam room for the White House.
Nicole Bryl, Mrs. Trump’s makeup artist told Stylish that lighting is key. “Melania wants a room with the most perfect lighting scenario, which will make our jobs as a creative team that much more efficient, since great lighting can make or break any look.” Bryl reported that it takes her creative team “about one hour and 15 minutes of uninterrupted focus” for that flawless finish.

A little crystal Chandalier provides the finishing touch of glamour ! #glamtastic #decoratewithabandon #DesignAndDecoration
Maybe Melania forgot to keep up with the Obamas and kept up with the Kardashians instead. It wasn’t too long ago when Kendall, Kris, Khloe and Kylie showed off their own glam rooms, complete with glass mirrors, custom cabinetry and big screen TVs.
While the glam room is public knowledge, Melania is keeping her Inauguration day outfits a closely guarded secret. Those in the know are whispering that designers Ralph Lauren and Karl Lagerfeld are hard at work on the new First Lady’s stylish ensembles.
If those rumors are true, it’ll be the third time Mrs. Trump has very publicly sported Lauren’s classic American style (her election night white jumpsuit and black jumpsuit at the third debate were the others). Lagerfeld, with his eclectic and bold aesthetic, has the savvy to turn Melania into a style icon overnight.
But the real question is, will she survive the Inauguration without her glam room? Stay tuned.
