The American designer's description of his black ensemble certainly suits the image that the public felt Melania Trump was channelling last night - that of Joan Collins in dynasty.

All the hubbub over the Trumps' attire nearly overshadowed another notable sartorial moment: the nearly eerily coordinated outfits worn by Mike Pence and Paul Ryan.

For his part, President Donald Trump wore a dark navy suit and striped tie, although in a rare break from his usual practice, he buttoned the jacket.

Ivanka Trump confused Congress with cocktail hour in Washington today.

But Ivanka wasn't the only Trump facing criticism for her fashion choice on the night that Donald Trump was trying to calm concerns about his tumultuous new presidency.
