For the somber ceremony during a wet, dreary day in Washington, Melania opted for a grey and black tweed wool coat with contrasting-colored piping from the First Lady go-to Italian label Dolce & Gabbana. The wool-cotton blend double-breasted grisaille coat is an A-line silhouette that features a neutral grey colorway and contrasting black piping, wide lapels, long sleeves, side pockets, ribbed ribbon detail, and a leopard print lining. It retailed for $2,395 but unfortunately, it is long sold out.

As for footwear, Melania completed her look with a pair of classic black leather pointed toe pumps from Manolo Blahnik. The ‘BB’ Pointy Toe Pump retails for $665 and is available for purchase at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Melania first wore this coat back in late January 2018 when she visited the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. At this time, Melania received a tour of the museum and participated in a moment of silence at the eternal flame in the Hall of Remembrance.

The first lady was escorted by a military man and sheltered under an umbrella walking to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. Vice president Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, Ivanka Trump, and other members of the Trump Administration also attended the Veterans Day ceremony.

A 21-gun salute was fired as the first and second couple arrived for the wreath-laying ceremony. Veteran Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie, a colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve, began the service by laying a wreath at the tomb, which contains unidentified remains from World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

Amid a steady rainfall, Trump saluted and Pence placed a hand over his heart as “Taps” was played at the tomb.

    Melania. is a magnificent First Lady. Elegant, fashionable, thoughtful and gracious. Her Be Best program is an asset in child development. She worked diligently in a thankless environment. History will honor her efforts.
