Let's be clear on one thing: Stassi Schroeder does not talk politics. But, she's definitely down for chatting fashion. When the Vanderpump Rules pal sat down with The Cut for an interview, the topic of the 2016 presidential election came up. Stassi declined to reveal which candidate she voted for — or, indeed, if she voted at all. But, she was keen to weigh in on Melania Trump's sense of style.
To begin her role as FLOTUS, Trump famously chose a pale-blue ensemble by Ralph Lauren for Donald Trump's January 20 inauguration. And let's just say: Stassi approved. The former SURver even tweeted on inauguration day: "it's perfect" next to a photo of the look with three blue hearts.
Stassi later told The Cut: "I don’t have any political thoughts. Stylewise, I think Melania is killing it. I think Ivanka, stylewise, is killing it. I mean, they’ve got a good wardrobe. That first outfit was all sky blue. Sky blue is my favorite color, so I was like, 'That’s what I would wear.'"
Weighing in on fashion comes naturally to Stassi, who named Fashion Police pioneer Joan Rivers as her idol.
"I want to bring humor to things that are normally sterile. Fashion: People take it so seriously. And it’s wonderful! I’m obsessed with it, I love it, but let’s bring some fun and humor and life into it," Stassi said. "So I want to find a way to … just live like Joan Rivers."
It's not quite true that Stassi doesn't have any political thoughts, by the way. She did share what her platform would be, if she were to run for POTUS. And that platform is: "wine for everyone." Sounds like a noble goal to us!
