It’s official, Donald J Trump has been sworn in as the 45th President of America, and the political elite have gathered in Washington for Donald Trump’s Inauguration ceremony – including his former rival, Hillary Clinton and daughters Ivanka and Tiffany.
It was Kellyanne Conway, President Trump’s senior adviser, who captured the mood of the day wearing a bold Gucci look for today’s Inauguration ceremony. She called the red white and blue coat “Trump revolutionary wear”. However her look by the Italian design house goes conflict with the ‘buy American’ message which the President touted in his Inaugural address.
More images after the jump – see who else is in Washington for the Inauguration – and what they’re wearing.
