First Lady Melania Trump joined her husband, President Trump Wednesday night to make a surprise appearance for Vice President Mike Pence acceptance convention speech at Fort McHenry National monument and Historic Shrine in Baltimore Wednesday evening.
For the third night of the RNC, Melania wore a high neck pink sleeveless midi dress from Jason Wu. The eye-catching silk dress featured a sheath silhouette full skirt, tea-length hem, concealed pockets, ruched waist cinched completed with two black velvet tie trimming that fell on each side and stopping short of forming a bow in the middle. Such making gave it a contemporary vibe, that is typical of a Wu design.
It is unknown the exact price of the stylish frock as it appears to be a custom made piece for the First Lady. However, the combination of fuchsia and black appears to be the focus key color of Jason Wu Fall 2020 Collection
She paired the stylish bold pink dress by matching the waist velvet tie with a pair of black velvet pumps by Manolo Blahnik. Matching the black velvet tie trimming with black velvet pump kept then look grounded and well balanced, a signature of how Melania styles and accessories her looks.
This isn’t the first time Melania has wore a Jason Wu dress during her three and a half year tenure as First Lady. The very first time Melania wore a Jason Wu creation from was during the solar eclipse viewing in August of 2017. Melania was seen wearing a pinstripe sheath dress.
Wu made a name for himself when former First Lady Michelle Obama wore his design to the 2009 Inaugural Ball. After President Trump won the election, a few big-name pretentious designers that came out to say they will never dress Melania.
When asked about the First Lady wearing his pinstripe sheath dress, Wu said Melania “looked lovely in it,” and doesn’t care about his clients’ political belief.
“She purchased a dress from a store, and I think she looked lovely in it,” Wu told Page Six in a phone call back in 2017. “I think it’s something I’m quite open about. Dressing people is my job, so I’m happy to dress any and all people. It’s kind of part of what I do. I’m not a politician, so for me, it’s not my place to judge anybody based on political beliefs.”
Meanwhile, Second Lady Karen Pence opted to wear a blue ruffled-sleeve ankle-length dress with a clinched belt on the waistline. As she walked onto the stage, Karen showed off the pair of footwear she wore to complete her look — a black set pump detail in blue and green floral decor printed round toe pump.
