First Lady Melania Trump and President Trump ended their two-day state visit in India Tuesday night at a state dinner held at Rashtrapati Bhavan, the official residence of the President of India.

For the state dinner, Melania donned a glamorous bright pink silk crepe gown by Carolina Herrera. The floor-length gown features a flared long sleeve, a high-neck rounded collar embellished with a long ribbon tie that hung down the front and back of the ensemble. It retailed for $2,990, but it is on sale for $1,285 at TheOutnet.com.

As for footwear, Melania opted to wear flat, a surprising choice as she is known for wearing signature stilettos — either Christian Louboutin or Manolo Blahnik. Matching her stunning gown, Melania wore a pair of hot pink ballet flats from Aquazzura. The Bliss Ballet Embroidered Flats featured white star-shaped embroidery throughout and ribbon trim at the topline. The shoes had a low-cut vamp, a feature that seems to extend the length of the leg. It retailed for $735, but unfortunately it is sadly sold out.

Melania evening wear was accented with gold drop-style earrings from a local Indian jeweler designer Amrapali Jewels.

Earlier, Melania wore a white floral-embroidered shirt dress by the same designer to visit the Delhi Government School, where she attended a “happiness class” to observe as part of her Be Best campaign. During her tour, Melania stopped at a reading room, spent time with kindergarten students and watched a yoga practice. She also meditated with students as part of a “mindfulness” activity and said after the exercise that she felt relaxed.

    Well, “The Donald” didn’t look very happy in any of the photos. I can’t say as I blame him, as I wouldn’t much care to visit India either. I wonder why they even went there in the first place. As for Melania’s gown, she’d even look good in a potato sack. She always outshines everyone in the room.

Being a reporter seems a ticket out to the world.
