It was a Royal Affair at Windsor Castle!
During the momentous occasion Friday afternoon meeting Queen Elizabeth II for tea, First Lady Melania Trump wore a shell-pink matching fitted Christian Dior skirt and high-collared jacket. The tailored suit was a custom take on a Pre-Fall designed by Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri. It featured a knee-length pencil skirt and asymmetric button-up jacket.
According to WWD, the Dior ensemble ready-to-wear collection caught her stylist Hervé Pierre’s eye, he inquired with the house about creating a variation in the powdery color that was used in its haute couture collection. Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and her team obliged.
She finished the look with a narrow belt that matched the jacket’s buttons and paired the ensemble with nude suede pumps.
The meeting of Queen Elizabeth is a highlight for Melania, according to President Trump who said the first lady is a “tremendous fan of hers.”
The 92-year-old monarch, who looked dignified in a lavender blue suit and matching hat, had a smile on her face as she greeted the duo outside the castle.
The Trumps’ visit to Windsor marked Queen Elizabeth II’s 12th time to meet a sitting president.
