Designer Tom Ford won’t be dressing first lady-elect Melania Trump anytime soon.

The haute couture God and film director went on gab-lovers’ daytime TV show ‘The View’ to talk about his new movie Nocturnal Animals where he admitted that he’d rather not see Melania in his clothes because they were too expensive.

“I was asked to dress her quite a few years ago and I declined … She’s not necessarily my image,” said Ford adding, “Also the first lady, other than the fact that I’m a Democrat and voted for Hillary and very sad and disappointed that she’s not in office but other than that, 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, they’re not artificially expensive, it’s how much it cost to make these things. But I think to relate to everybody.”

Joy Behart was quick to quiz him about Michelle Obama, who wore expensive clothes during her time at the White House to which Ford responded: “Michelle I dressed once when she was going to Buckingham Palace for dinner with the Queen, and I thought it was appropriate. I live in London, so that made sense. And it was an honour to dress her.”
