Here’s Where Melania Trump’s Stylist Shops For Her First Lady Wardrobe

Designer Hervé Pierre, who formerly worked at Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera when he first arrived in New York, is now focused on projects of his own. Pierre talked to The New York Times about one of his most important tasks: dressing Melania Trump. It was his role to design her 2017 Inaugural gown, a sleek but statement-making number that set the tone for her future wardrobe.

While Hervé isn't behind every one of Melania's often controversial looks, he does maintain a routine when it comes to their collaboration. "I do a bit of styling with [Melania], but it's not really my forte. What interests me in this relationship is not just finding pretty clothes - a lot of people can do that. It's more about the legacy of this woman. Everybody has a different reaction to what she's wearing . . . If I have to go to D.C., I go, but if she's at the tower, it's not very far to walk. She doesn't need me all the time, so there are other things to do."

Hervé also revealed where he shops first when choosing a new ensemble: "My favorite place to shop - actually, there is none because each time it's a good experience. I go to Bergdorf, I go to Saks. Michael Kors, Dior. What is challenging is when I cannot say what it is for. I always ask: 'Was it already on the red carpet? Did somebody already wear it?' Because I don't want her to be on the 'Who Wore It Better' list."

Read on to find out a little more about Hervé's most iconic projects and what it's like to join forces with Melania before a very big event.

This Is the New Mini Bag You’re About to See Everywhere – and Fall in Love With

Ever since the Drew came into our lives back in 2015, Chloé has been the go-to brand for bag-lovers - and this season will be no different. For her final collaboration with the French brand, designer Clare Waight Keller presented us with one last incredible creation: the Pixie bag. Thanks to its '60s-inspired look, it has already conquered the hearts of both bohemian and preppy style stars alike, popping up around every corner of London during Fashion Week. Scroll through for a look at the bag that's destined to be this year's must have, and snap it up for yourself before it disappears off the shelves!

Marc Jacobs Just Set Up a Hip-Hop Runway Right on the Sidewalk

Marc Jacobs Just Set Up a Hip-Hop Runway Right on the Sidewalk

For a collection heavily influenced by hip-hop, there wasn't a single sound on the runway. Marc Jacobs invited his guests to the Lexington Armory and set up two rows of folding chairs - the type you probably sat on during high school assemblies. There was no warning that the show was about to start, save for the time on the clock (2 p.m.) and the stomping of the models' feet in Marc's signature chunky platform boots, a patent oxford on occasion.

The show lasted eight minutes. Eight minutes of mostly neutral clothes walking by. The only real pop of color was from the hardware on all the flashy jewelry, a collaboration with artist Urs Fischer. From large-and-in-charge hoops to long pendant chains and the detailing on hobo bags, gold was the clear focus. There was one bedazzled earring in the shape of a key that stood out, along with a flashy little miniskirt swathed in sequins.

The outerwear, however, was particularly strong. There were plenty of plaid coats and one jacket with cherry-red shearling accents. The track suits looked as though they could have been plucked from a thrift store but undoubtedly worn-in and comfortable. Extended bucket hats and backwards baseball caps by Stephen Jones were the final nod to the origin of street wear.

At the end of it all, Marc himself emerged wearing all-black and one single gold chain. We were permitted to leave. Outside on the street, Marc's cast (including Kendall Jenner, Winnie Harlow, Jamie Bochert, and Hanne Gaby Odiele) were lined up in front of a wall of boomboxes blasting songs. Everyone took photos of the display as the models flashed their iPhones right back at us. But the message was in the loud, thumping music: it was what shaped the clothes of the entire hip-hop cultural movement. Scroll for a look at the encore sidewalk performance.

It’s About Time You Joined the Coach Club This Fall

It’s About Time You Joined the Coach Club This Fall

Picture this: you're hanging with Dorothy in Tornado Alley right before the storm hits - then a bunch of rocker-chic models roll in. That was Stuart Vevers's setting for Fall 2017 (which is different than last season, when his cool kids hung around a car pileup), but this collection is so obviously elevated.

Floral puffers with shearling collars will replace the must-have moto coats and varsity jackets Coach is so famous for. (You've seen them on Emma Roberts and new face of the brand, Selena Gomez, who both sat front row.) Meanwhile, top handle bags will make it onto the wish lists of ladies who refuse to forget their youth. The long, pouch-like shape instantly conjures images of our old pencil cases, after all.

Not to be missed are the furling baseball caps that are slightly oversize and go just as well with the patched and personalized outerwear as they do with romantic ruffled dresses. Pair the whole lineup with thick-soled sneaker boots and you, too, can stomp around all day to the tune of "1979" by the Smashing Pumpkins - if you remembered your earbuds.
