There's no question among many people that Melania Trump has some big shoes to fill as the new FLOTUS of the U.S.--especially when it comes to fashion, something that Michelle Obama has indisputably set a high bar for.  

It's already become clear that Trump knows she has to live up to some high expectations set because of Obama (her RNC speech comes to mind), and she may already be trying to compare when it comes to the fashion game, as she has sported some very popular looks at campaign events. However, her looks, while also fashionable, are very different from the ones that Obama has sported.  

Here are popular looks each sported for various campaign events:  

Presidential Debates

For the debates in 2012 as her husband campaigned for re-election, Michelle Obama once again showed her flair for bold designs and trends that somewhat buck tradition, but also exuded class, with a blue Preen number at the first debate, a pink Michael Kors dress at the second debate, and a grey dress with black lace by Thom Browne at the third.

As her husband campaigned to become the next President, Trump showcased some streamlined looks that were still very fashionable overall-and even one which many questioned as a possible slam at recent allegations against her husband. Her looks included a $2600 black Roland Mouret dress, a pink Gucci "pussy Bow" dress/blouse, and a Ralph Lauren black jumpsuit.  

National Conventions

As she campaigned for Hillary Clinton and showed support for the Democratic nominee at the Democratic National Convention in 2016, Obama sported a classic cap-sleeved blue dress by Christian Siriano.

Most emphasis on her appearance at the event was on her alleged plagiarism of a speech by Obama, but Trump also stunned in a white Roksanda dress with puffy sleeves.  

Election Night

A Red and Black Narciso Rodriguez dress was criticized at first, but set the tone for the bold choices Obama would make in the eight years to follow.

Trump set the tone for her tenure as First Lady with another streamlined look, sporting a white Ralph Lauren Jumpsuit as Donald Trump announced his victory over Hillary Clinton.
