"I have no interest whatsoever in dressing Melania Trump," Jacobs told Women's Wear Daily. "I didn't see [Sophie Theallet's] letter. Personally, I'd rather put my energy into helping out those who will be hurt by [Donald] Trump and his supporters."
"I was asked to dress her quite a few years ago and I declined," Ford said while on The View. "She's not necessarily my image...The first lady—other than the fact that I'm a Democrat, and voted for Hillary, and [am] very sad and disappointed that she's not in office—even had Hillary won, she shouldn't be wearing my clothes. They're too expensive. And I don't mean this in a bad way. [She needs] to relate to everybody."
