Supermodel Emily Ratajkowski, who was seated next to the reporter during the event on Sunday, had spilled the beans on Twitter. “Sat next to a journalist from the NYT last night who told me ‘Melania is a hooker,’” Ratajkowski tweeted Monday morning.
Don't tell us Cokie is biased against the abilities of immigrants!...
“I think Melania is a very beautiful woman and I think any designer should be proud to dress her. Ivanka is equally as beautiful and smart, although she wears her own clothes. I don’t think people should become political about it. Everyone was very happy to dress Michelle [Obama] as well. I think they look great in the clothes. You’re not gonna get much more beautiful than Ivanka or Melania.”
As one who celebrates and strives for diversity, individual freedom, and respect for all lifestyles. I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady. The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband's presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by. I encourage my fellow designers to do the same.
