Stephanie Winston Wolkoff was responsible for organizing the Trump inauguration with Tom Barrack.

It looks like Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, former Vogue special events director who helped plan the Met Gala, isn't done working with the Trump administration.

After organizing the presidential inauguration with Tom Barrack — he's the one who described the event as having a "soft sensuality," remember? — Wolkoff has reportedly been tapped to serve as Melania Trump's chief strategist. Page Six reports that she is "helping interview and select candidates for the first lady's chief of staff, communications chief and social secretary."

The move doesn't come as a huge surprise considering that Wolkoff is a longtime friend of the first lady. The duo apparently have lunch once a month and have traveled together to the Trumps' Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, according to DuJour.

Sounds like "General Winston," a name that was given to Wolkoff by Anna Wintour, is here to stay.
