THE MELANIA EFFECT: Europe’s Royals Are Scrapping Frumpy For Glamorous Thanks To Melania

Written by K. Walker on April 11, 2017

Well, look at that. It seems our glamorous First Lady is having an effect across the globe.

Melania wowed crowds every time she was seen in public, on the campaign trail and then as First Lady.

She’s poised, polished and elegant.

She’s brought classy back.

And it’s spreading.

From her powder blue Jackie Kennedy-style inauguration outfit to her love of clean lines and sophisticated tailoring, she’s not put a foot wrong when it comes to fashion.

Now style bible Vogue has confirmed that – after just three full months as First Lady – Melania Trump’s fashion influence has already trickled down to Europe’s royals – not to mention other women on the world stage, such as Juliana Awada of Argentina and Queen Rania of Jordan.

The Melania effect was confirmed by writer Edward Barsamian, who noted how Queen Mathilde and Crown Princess Mary had both adopted Melania’s style on the Belgian royals’ state visit to Denmark at the end of last month.

‘Queen Mathilde’s periwinkle blue coat could have been pulled straight from the new First Lady’s wardrobe, and was reminiscent of the custom Ralph Lauren Collection Inauguration Day outfit,’ he said.

‘Much like Melania, the queen and crown princess had all the necessary ladylike accoutrements to amp up the First Lady effect: leather gloves, tonal coordinating clutch, and a pillbox hat.’
