Ralph Lauren is traditionally an American designer. Trump’s dress is seen as a nod to the American culture. Her belt, which is the on-sale $537 from Alexander McQueen, is a British nod.
Whereas her shoes are an acknowledgment to the French. Fashion commentators thought the mix of American, British, and French designers were subtle nods to the strong partnerships between the three nations.

Trump has favored Ralph Lauren on multiple official occasions since becoming the First Lady. The second go-to label is Dolce & Gabbana.
She famously wore a Ralph Lauren coat dress for her first official appearance as FLOTUS at her husband's Presidential Inauguration in January 2017. Her outfit garnered favorable comparisons to the style of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.
