Melania Trump Donates Her Inauguration Gown to Smithsonian

Melania Trump poses next to her inauguration gown and the dress’ designer Herve Pierre at an event at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History on Friday (October 20) in Washington, D.C.

The 47-year-old First Lady of the United States donated the gown she wore at the inauguration to be on display at the museum.

While many designers have refused to dress Melania, the designer has explained why he decided to design the gown for her.

“If some people don’t want to dress the first lady, that’s the beauty of freedom,” Pierre told the Washington Post. “That’s also my right to say yes. I wanted to. It was beside the political thing. It was not even a question. [To say no] would have been absurd. It was about the honor of the country.”

Carrie Fisher Remembered By Her Family on Her Birthday

Carrie Fisher Remembered By Her Family on Her Birthday

Carrie Fisher‘s daughter Billie and brother Todd are celebrating her first birthday since her passing last year.

The late Star Wars actress, who would have turned 61 on Saturday (October 21), is being remembered by her family with a moment of reflection.

“You can be sure that Billie and I will have a moment in reflection on Carrie‘s day,” Todd told E! News.

He added, “Certainly we are all still dealing with the difference of life here. It’s a substantial change in the planet when you remove Carrie and Debbie from it. It’s a huge vacuum that nobody could ever fill so you move on and you try to live your life without that presence, which, we will because we are survivors—and we were trained by Debbie.”

“I think [Billie is] doing very well. She is dealing with it remarkably. I think she’ll make a great role model in her time as well, having grown up around two amazing women. I think she is going to reflect that in her future,” Todd concluded.
