Has Hope Hicks Inadvertently Started A Fashion War With FLOTUS And Ivanka?

Throughout the eleven months of the Trump presidency, there has been enough drama to fill up several scripts and books. Part of that is due to the fact that we’ve never seen a President like Donald Trump. While reaction is almost always mixed to the commander-in-chief and generally falls along party lines, it’s even more defined in the Trump era. People either love him or hate him, and the days of being in the middle on things seems to be nothing but a memory.

Additionally, there remains a tremendous amount of fascination with all things Trump. After a normal presidential election cycle comes to a close, most folks move on with their lives and take a breather from politics. That hasn’t happened this time around, and there’s wall-to-wall coverage on anything and everything about Trump as a result. The smallest things get blown completely out of proportion as a result, and the day's events are generally treated as the latest installment in a political thriller.

There’s also a ton of chatter around the gossip mill about the drama that takes place behind the scenes at the White House. But is there really all that much going on, or is it just much ado about nothing? Unless you actually work in the White House, that would be pretty tough to say with certainty. However, some folks just follow the signs to see if there really is any fire behind all that smoke. A rather interesting sign has come to fruition of late, and some observers are reading the tea leaves to make sense of it.

As Business Insider shares, some speculation has arisen that White House communications director is changing her allegiances from Ivanka Trump to First Lady Melania Trump. So how could anyone possibly know this without hearing it directly from Hicks herself? That’s unclear, but some observers have noted the evolution of her wardrobe in recent times. Whereas it once mirrored what Ivanka would wear, it has taken a shift to appear as if it’s being inspired by the First Lady in recent times. A report in GQ helped to lay that out.

"Hicks grew close to Ivanka and began dressing like the heiress, who seemed worthy of the emulation," GQ noted. "Ivanka was that rare female corporate leader who is also kind to other women, and she affected an air of competence that seemed to temper the boorishness of the Trump brand."

The flirty dresses and stylish business casual attire has given way to more elaborate things of late, and many of her wardrobe choices of late look as if they could have come directly from the closet of FLOTUS. So is this a clear sign of problems behind the scenes or a bunch of scuttlebutt over nothing? We can’t answer that with certainty, but we will note that Hicks has been quite the hit - at least as far as her job performance goes.

"I have always found Hope to be great to deal with, especially given the volume of requests she must be getting," according to Maggie Haberman of The New York Times.
