#SocialGathering: Meghan Markle Channels Kardashian Style; Melania Trump Follows First Lady Trends
And Tom Hardy makes his return to Instagram.
Melania Trump, Fashion Influencer
If you follow the First Lady on Twitter, you may have noticed she’s shifted toward a more curated, fashion-centric image in her newest photos. Much like the work of the former White House photographer to President Barack Obama, Pete Souza, the images seem to reflect a more gentle, candid side of the First Lady with a bit of street-style edge. Unlike her stepdaughter Ivanka's Twitter account, Melania’s doesn’t mirror her Instagram.
Following a trend set by first ladies Jacqueline Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton, Melania wore red to light the White House Christmas Tree. First Lady Michelle Obama bucked the trend, going for white, green and black looks during her time in residence. Since Monday, Melania has worn looks by Chanel, Dior and Ralph Lauren — all brands former First Ladies have worn.
Rita Ora Celebrates Her Birthday in Her Birthday Suit
Pop singer Rita Ora celebrated turning 27 in Nairobi, Kenya, in her birthday suit. Literally. The philanthropic star visited a Maasai village with the support of Space for Giants, a nonprofit that ensures elephants will always have a place to roam in the Serengeti. Expect to see Rita in Love magazine’s 2017 annual Advent Calendar — you just have to guess the date.
Is Meghan Markle Copying Press-Friendly Looks?
CBS Style Director Sasha Charnin Morrison says, "yes," Prince Harry’s fiancee is copping a less-is-more style worn by everyone from Carolyn Bessette to Kim Kardashian. Is it truly classic or is someone using a tried-and-true press-friendly look book?
Former PA to Prince William and Princess Kate, Natasha Archer is currently serving as HRH style adviser and wardrobe manager, as reported by The Telegraph. Archer reportedly buys multiples for Princess Kate, to make it appear as if she wears the same outfit or pair of shoes more than once, according to The Daily Mail. Added bonus: Archer’s fiance is a Getty photographer, responsible for some of those fantastic shots of Kate. Maybe if the Princess is feeling generous, she will share with her soon-to-be sister-in-law.
