The New York Times reported thatRalph Lauren's office said of the decision to design Trump's clothes: "The presidential inauguration is a time for the United States to look our best to the world. It was important to us to uphold and celebrate the tradition of creating iconic American style for this moment."

The same designer also dressed previous first ladies

According to Cosmopolitan, Ralph Lauren also outfitted Michelle Obama, Nancy Reagan and Betty Ford at  their husbands' inauguration ceremonies.

Her hair was a classic updo

Us Weekly spoke to Trump's longtime hairstylist, Mordechai Alvow, who let his client's outfit influence her hair.

"The outfit had beautiful tailoring, including a super high collar that is great for her long neck, and a 1950s feel, modernized with a touch of origami shapes," Alvow said. "It was important to make sure her hair not interfere with the clean lines and monochrome color, so we decided to put her hair up, which also allowed her amazing bone structure to take center stage."

The updo had a modern edge with a sharp, deep-angled part.

Jewelry was minimal

Trump kept her jewelry very minimal, wearing only sparkling diamond stud earrings. Her 25-carat diamond engagement ring was nowhere to be seen, even above her gloves.

Melania Trump's makeup was light and natural

Although her past work as a model has meant that she's worn more dramatic makeup looks, Trump kept things natural and light for Inauguration Day. A slight face contour, nude pink lips, light blush and a slightly smokey eye rounded out her look.

The 44th president and the former first lady waved to crowds and wished the Trumps well as they made their final public appearance as the presidential couple.

The couple has already announced some of their first plans post-White House. 

"First, we're going to take a little break," Michelle Obama said in a video released Friday by the Obama Foundation. "We're finally going to get some sleep and take some time to be with our family and just be still for a little bit." 

Michelle Obama said the pair "might not be online quite as much" as in the past. 

During a December interview with former aide David Axelrod, Barack Obama said he planned to do some self-reflection.

"I'm going to start thinking about the first book ... I want to write. We've got to unpack, and ... I have to be quiet for a while," he said. 

Obama explained that he didn't mean that he plans to be politically quiet, but rather plans to reflect on all areas of his life.

"I don't mean politically. I mean internally. I have to still myself," he said. "You have to get back in tune with your center and process what happened before you make a bunch of good decisions."

Obama changed his Twitter handle on Friday after stepping down as commander in chief and issued his first tweet as a former president. 

"Michelle and I are off on a quick vacation, then we'll get back to work," he wrote.

Hi everybody! Back to the original handle. Is this thing still on? Michelle and I are off on a quick vacation, then we'll get back to work.— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) January 20, 2017

Barack Obama also discussed the Obama Foundation's plans to open the Obama Center, a presidential center on the south side of Chicago, where Michelle and Barack Obama met and raised their daughters. The center will be a library, a museum and a "living, working center for citizenship," according to the former president.

According to the official website, the Obama Foundation "will focus on developing the next generation of citizens and what it means to be a good citizen in the 21st century ... It will have nonprofit programs across the city, the United States and the world." The foundation aims to "build programs to inspire us all to be better citizens and to help young leaders develop their ideas."

"The work of perfecting our union is never finished, and we look forward to joining you in that effort as fellow citizens," Barack Obama said. 

I won't stop; I'll be right there with you as a citizen, inspired by your voices of truth and justice, good humor, and love.— President Obama (@POTUS44) January 20, 2017

Realtor loses job after calling police to help dog abandoned in vacant home

A Michigan real estate agent said she lost her job after she called police to help an abandoned dog she found trapped in the basement of a home that she was showing to a client.

Alison Reedy told WXYZ in Detroit that she found the Chihuahua caged in the basement of a Lincoln Park home, surrounded by its own waste. The home was listed as vacant.

Reedy told the news station that she first called the listing agent for the home, who told her that the home’s owner had to move into an apartment and could not take the dog.

“It was appalling,” Reedy said in an interview. “The lack of compassion in the situation, it really just pulled at my heart.”

Once she realized that the dog had been abandoned, Reedy called police. The Lincoln Park Police Department responded and turned the dog over to animal control officers.

Reedy, who said she has been a Realtor for six years, told the news station that she lost her job after the incident because she failed to call her boss before she called police. She said she also violated an ethics policy at her company for sharing the situation on social media.

She said she has no regrets.

“I don’t care, I really don’t. I have a better opportunity,” Reedy told WXYZ.

The station said the homeowner could face charges for abandoning the dog.

Pushing back against the Black Lives Matter movement that protested the police killings of unarmed black men, the Trump administration said it would reduce violent crime in Chicago and other major cities.

“Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter, or the violent disrupter,” the policy reads. “Our job is to make life more comfortable for parents who want their kids to be able to walk the streets safely. Or the senior citizen waiting for a bus. Or the young child walking home from school.”

The White House said supporting law enforcement also means building a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico and deporting people who are in the country illegally and have violent criminal records.
