Melania Trump's stylist was paid $100,000 in the last six months of 2023.

The payments were made in eight installments of $18,000, along with one payment of $6,000 labeled as "Strategy Consulting." This brings the total amount earned by Pierre from Trump's Save America leadership PAC since April 2022 to $371,000.

Herve Pierre, a French-American fashion designer who previously worked for Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta, has been associated with the former first lady since Trump's time in office. He is best known for designing her iconic ivory gown, which she wore to her husband's inaugural ball in January 2017.

The former president's super PAC has been heavily burdened by legal expenses in the past year.

Last year, his Save America leadership PAC and the Make America Great Again PAC spent a staggering $56 million on legal fees, with $30 million being spent in the last half of the year. These expenses encompass legal representation across various criminal and civil cases Trump is facing in New York, Washington, D.C., Florida, and Georgia.

The charges against Trump range from his alleged involvement in the January 6 Capitol insurrection to attempts to overturn election results in Georgia. He is also involved in a case related to hush payments made to p--- star Stormy Daniels.

To defend himself against these charges, Trump's legal team has filed numerous briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court, seeking immunity from prosecution.

Recently, Trump was found liable for $83 million in damages for defaming E. Jean Carroll.

Trump has filed to appeal the verdict and has gone on to deny all wrongdoing, labeling all the charges against him a "political witch hunt."

Although he still has substantial funds available and the ability to raise more, the significant portion of money allocated to legal matters is reportedly proving to be a major concern for the former president.
