Melania Trump alongside her husband, Donald Trump departed the White House early Wednesday morning, a place they have called home over the last four years as the pair walk to board Marine One for the last time as President and First Lady.
Departing the White House from the South Lawn, Melania donned an elegant figure of a classic Chanel suit jacket. The cropped tweed Chanel jacket is from the French fashion house Metiers D’art Pre-Fall 2020 collection. It retails $5,600 and is available by limited purchase at Chanel.com boutique. Underneath the Chanel tweed jacket, Melania wore a fitted black crepe sheath dress by Dolce & Gabbana. The black sheath dress crafted from Italy is from the designers’ Spring 2020 Ready-to-Wear collection and taps into the house’s feminine sensibilities and features a plunging square neckline giving the capture of a high-octane mood. It retails for $2,155 and is available for purchase at matchesfashion.com.
Completing her Sophia Loren feel look, Melania paired her elegant all-black look with one of her go-to shoes, black Pigalle Follies croc-effect Christian Louboutin pumps. These sexy pumps retail for $795 and are still available at Net-a-Porter.com. Styled by her stylist Herve Pierre for her farewell look, Pierre also selected sleek black gloves and big oversized sunglasses to complete this ensemble. The sunglasses from Bottega Veneta features a rectangular look with detailed thin art deco-inspired golden arms. It retails for $440 and is available for purchase at Intermixonline.com.
To match her Christian Louboutin croc-effect pumps, Melania was seen carrying a Hermes Birkin bag, a go-to brand handbag Melania was seen carrying to pair with her luxury styles throughout the last four years as First Lady. The Birkin is considered one of the most expensive bags to date with Melania carrying a croc-effect Birkin bag. The Birkin bag is distributed in limited quantities and often with unpredictable timings, which requires customers to join a waitlist rumored to be of thousands. This exclusivity of the Hermes Birkin bag is rooted in storied tradition, influence, and craftsmanship. The rarest shiny black with gold hardware croc Birkin bag is available for purchase at second-hand luxury consignment stores such as The RealReal or 1stDibs with a price range between $45,000-$80,000.
Make like Melania with a farewell outfit that gives off a Sophia Loren feel.
Before jetting off to Florida, Trump held a small farewell rally at Joint Base Andrews where he gave a brief speech and even Melania shared her own brief parting message. Trump described his wife as a “woman of great grace and beauty and dignity” and as First Lady, she was “so popular with the people,” before he called on Melania to give a brief farewell.
“Being your first lady was my greatest honor — thank you for your love and support,” Melania said in brief remarks. “You will be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all, God bless your families and God bless this beautiful nation.”
Upon arrival and departure, the base also boomed with music that Trump often used at his campaign rallies, including “YMCA” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
“We were not a regular administration,” Trump said in his 10-minute remarks. “I will always fight for you … the future of this country has never been better. I wish the new administration great luck and great success.”
Throughout the four years as First Lady, Melania raised the bar with her fashion style, despite being ruthlessly attacked by fashion magazine. Trump in October 2019 filed paperwork making Florida their primary residence, citing his decision to move was due to being “treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state.”
Earlier this week, Melania shared a video message reflecting on her four “unforgettable” years serving as First Lady.
“The past four years have been unforgettable as Donald and I conclude our time at the White House, I think of all of the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism and determination,” Melania said in the nearly seven-minute video shared on her First Lady Twitter account.
The First Lady also touted her signature “Be Best” initiative and reflected on some of the program’s accomplishments both domestically and internationally. Melania launched the three-pillar campaign in 2018 that was dedicated to challenges and issues impacting the lives of children while emphasizing the importance of physical, social, and emotional well being.
“To all the people of this country, you will be in my heart forever,” Melania concluded.
After arriving at Palm Beach, Melania shared a final tweet to her 16.5 million followers from her First Lady Twitter account, asking them to follow her personal account “for future updates & announcements.”Bottega VenetaChanelChristian LouboutinDolce & GabbanaFarewell RallyFashionFirst LadyFLOTUSHermes BirkinHervé PierreInaugurationJoint Base AndrewsMelania TrumpPolitical FashionPresident TrumpWhite House

Melania Trump was the most beautiful, best dressed, best figure “First Lady the US has ever had. I will really miss looking at her stylish outfits now that she’s gone. She was so kind and sweet. Real class.

She is a beautiful, gracious and kind individual who worked tirelessly for us for four years. We were very fortunate she was our First Lady for four years. Thank you, Melania, for all of your efforts on our behalf.
fayJanuary 22, 2021
beautiful and gracious.. those that have been critical of her have about as much class as a “rhino” and only hope to ever achieve as much class as she has in her small toe!!! who cares what she was wearing – what we care about is who and what she was the past four years.. she would be just as classy in a pair of jeans and shirt.. and we remember one first lady who tried that… now what we are waiting for is to see the Trumps back draining the swamp, putting us first and making our country great.. it only took 2 days or less for it to become everything less than great..
AnneJanuary 22, 2021

Nobody will give a rats butt what beijing biteMe’s wife wears to anything. You can put lipstick on a pig, but you still have a pig.
You can dress ’em up, but they’re still corruptocrats.

Melania is the most beautiful, classy, accomplished, smart, & classy first lady we have ever had. I just love her and we will never have a first lady that will top her. Any body that don’t agree with this is just jealous! When the president was running he was in my town 3 times and I was there all 3 times to see him and was right up front and got his autograph the only thing I regretted was that Melania was not with him so I could see her in person!
Robert SievekingJanuary 22, 2021
Beautiful Lady. She shines far above the others I have had to endure. She exits the political stage with Grace and Dignity. To her and Donald Trump, I wish nothing but the best. He Gave much more than he received to the office of the President. He was the BEST.
Linda GardnerJanuary 21, 2021
The classiest, most elegant, most beautiful charming, intelligent First Lady ever. Yet the media, Hollywood elite, fashion magazines, the old hens on the view, democrats were all jealous with envy, so they ridiculed her n everything she did. They were rude, abusive n hateful toward her. But Mrs Trump rose above their pettiness with grace and charm. We hope to see her return soon.
Thank you for being so tolerant. Until then we wish her peace n quiet, quality time with her handsome son, time to travel n time with her husband. May God bless her n the family.
Roxie Lee SmithJanuary 21, 2021

Our First Lady Melania Trump is, by far, the most beautiful, yet humble and gracious, of the first ladies going back to Jackie Kennedy. I am so going to miss both the President and First Lady, and I ask God to help our country for the next 4 years.. .
GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY AND BLESS OUR TRUE PRESIDENT AND FIRST LADY, DONALD AND MELANIA TRUMP.

Beautiful and all class.

Classiest of them all….

She is by far the BEST of all the First Ladies I have witnessed in my life! So glad she wore black (no one wears clothes so beautifully like our First Lady).
It was a day of mourning for our Country, so black was appropriate, to see President Trump and First Lady Melania leave the Whitehouse due to a stolen, fraudulent, criminal election!
My unwavering prayers and hope is that all corruption of democrats, Republicans, and federal officials that colluded in this fraudulent election and so much more will be revealed! God is not mocked! The VIPERS continue to reveal themselves!
Looking forward to see what First Lady Melania wears when they rightfully return to the Whitehouse!
