WASHINGTON — Melania Trump stepped out in a powder blue Ralph Lauren outfit that harkened back to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ iconic style.

She also wore matching shoes and gloves for the inauguration of her husband, Donald Trump, on Friday.

Her look drew comparisons to the outfit Jackie Kennedy wore to her husband’s inauguration in 1961.

Ralph Lauren also did many of former first lady Hillary Clinton’s suits.

The brand declined to comment on how the Ralph Lauren Collection came together, whether it offered the powder blue skirt ensemble or if Trump chose it herself.

Kellyanne Conway also wore a coat that drew much attention as it was unabashedly patriotic and studded with “feline heads.”
