First Lady Melania Trump made a sparkling appearance at the Congressional Ball on Thursday, joining husband President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Second First Lady Karen Pence in welcoming guest in the Grand Foyer at the White House.
Looking majestic, Melania wore a white crystal-embellished cape silk gown from Lebanese designer Reem Acra. Made from fluid silk-crepe, the gown has a dramatic cape-effect back that is outlined by its featuring sparkling crystals and flows beautifully at the floor. It retailed for $4,000, but unfortunately this exact Reem Acra gown is sold out.
President Trump made brief remarks as the House Judiciary Committee were continuing debates before expecting to approve two articles of impeachment.
“We’re having a very exciting month in Washington, D.C. There haven’t been too many like it,” Trump said as the audience laughed.
He thanked Melania for doing such a “beautiful job” decorating the Grand Foyer.
“I want to congratulate Melania,” Trump said. “She did such a beautiful job with the decorations.”
While some congress members were stuck in the House Judiciary Committee hearing, others were able to join in the Christmas fun with the President and First Lady. Among those spotted were House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) and U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Alito.
Melania tweeted that it was a “beautiful evening at the White House.”
