Anthony Scaramucci only had an 11-day tenure in the White House, but the former communications director left something behind by which he could be remembered. Actually, a someone instead of a something: the White House’s professional stylist Katie Price.
During The Mooch’s short stay in the Trump administration, he complimented Price’s work live on CNN. This led to the hair and makeup artist eventually being given a permanent role in the White House. Price, serving under the title of production assistant, now has a desk in the press office. Her daily duties include getting Sarah Huckabee Sanders camera-ready daily, as well as sometimes styling Kellyanne Conway and other White House staffers.
Prior to joining the White House, Price had a bridal business, NOVAbelles, and worked on a freelance basis. After reporters began asking about Price, she deleted most of her social media, but still posts on Instagram. Most of her posts are pictures of her on the White House grounds, attending public events.
President Donald Trump’s administration isn’t the first to have a stylist on staff, and given the man’s obsession with looks and celebrity, it should come as no surprise that one is now employed. George W. Bush’s administration had a stylist, Lois Cassano, from day one. Former Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer stated that “Lois handled all clearances for the press. She established the computerized system, answered phones, helped with paperwork and was treated like any member of my press staff.”
Although it has been reported that Price does also perform some administrative assistant-type duties, it seems to be nowhere near the same as performed by Cassano. Price’s main task appears to be making sure Trump’s staff looks good on TV, even if what comes out of their mouth sounds ugly.
