In two days, on Jan. 20, 2017, our country will experience another change. Inauguration Day is always emotional for people on both ends of the spectrum, as one president and his family leaves a place they called home for so long, and a new president comes in.
Though this day is about the president himself, eyes are not only on him, but also the new first lady and his family.
Women from all over the world will be looking at Melania Trump for many reasons such as hope, reassurance, and maybe something new, but mostly, on the night of the inauguration ball, women will look at her to see what she decides to clothe herself with at an event the whole world will be watching.

The inaugural gowns that have been worn in the past by each first lady are elegant, beautiful and symbolic to their families, current events in America, or even hope.
For months people have been asking about what the new First Lady of the United States will wear to the inaugural ball. Melania Trump has gone down many runways in numerous designers and various different pieces, but now as she is stepping into a new role that is much different than her past the question of “who would dress her and what will the dress look like?” has filled people’s thoughts and has made many very curious.
Though, no one is for sure what the new first lady will wear, because some designers have refused to dress her according to Time, it will most likely be stunning like all the first ladies before her.
Women’s Wear Daily, also know as the WWD, believes that Ralph Lauren is the front-runner for Melania’s Inauguration Day choices that she could be seen wearing on Friday at the inaugural ball.
Inauguration Day begins at 11:30 a.m., Friday, Jan. 20, with the swearing-in ceremony at the West Front of the Capitol followed by a parade in the afternoon. At 7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 20, the inaugural balls will begin.
