Stylish and elegant. That is how First Lady Rachel Ruto looked during the inauguration of President William Ruto at the Kasarani International Stadium.
President Ruto and Mr Gachagua both wore yellow ties to complement the outfits of their spouses.
Stylists did not fail to notice the fashion statements being made by Ms Ruto and Ms Rigathi whose chosen colours, they say, speak of royalty.
“The outfit that she has just worn today is a statement, she has just come out boldly to take her space, not only as the first lady but as a fashion icon. Of all the outfits we have seen her wear, this is one of the best, it brings out the elegance and the use of bold colours is also a point to note. The gold colour symbolizes royalty,” Ms Chemutai Kurgat, owner of Chemuuz Ankara, said.
Ms Kurgat also designed some for President Ruto during the campaign period, when he mostly wore shirts with Ankara accents.
“We were trying to get away from the normal T-shirts that had been witnessed in previous campaigns. I created outfits that can be worn during and after elections,” she explained.
Stylist Michael Mwaura said the First Lady’s dress is a breath of fresh air from the Ankara outfits that she has been donning.
“It is unique and different. The colour gold is definitely a statement. An improvement from the Rachel Ruto we have been seeing in terms of fashion. I am glad she took her time to get a good stylist and designer,” Mr Mwaura said.
Designer Deepa Dosaja also agrees that Mrs Ruto looked stunning.
“The dress really flattered her figure, and I am looking forward to dressing her in ethically sustainable fabrics,” Ms Dosaja said.
Simple yet elegant has always been Mrs Ruto’s go-to look, and that is why her fashion metamorphosis was noticed during her daughter’s wedding.
She was elegant in a fuchsia gown as she walked her first-born daughter, June Ruto, down the aisle alongside her better half, President Ruto.
