First Lady Melania Trump joined her husband President Trump for a celebratory address on Thursday following his impeachment acquittal in the White House’s East Room.
Looking chic and conservative, Melania wore a navy two-piece skirt suit by Michael Kors. She previous wore this skirt suit set when arriving to London for the three day trip last June. The stretch-wool blazer, which Melania wore draped over her shoulder, is a slim blazer that features notched lapels, bracelet length sleeves, and a single-button closure. It retails for $1,395 and is available for purchase at MichaelKors.com. She paired the blazer with the matching pencil skirt. Made from wool-gabardine, the skirt highlights the waist, falling just below the knee with a back slit for timeless elegance. It retails for $625 and is available at MichaelKors.com.
To complete the whole ensemble, Melania teamed the skirt set with a white and black polka dot blouse from Gabriela Hearst. The silk pleated long sleeve blouse features a button down collar, button cuffs and a curved hem. It retails for $1,290 and is available for purchase at Farfetch.com.
As for footwear, Melania donned a pair of nude So Kate pumps from Christian Louboutin. These glossy patent beauties retail for $695 and is available at NeimanMarcus.com.
Looking to emulate the First Lady’s style, below are a few chic alternatives that one can get without breaking the bank.
Trump spoke to a room full of supporters, cabinets officials, GOP lawmakers and family members. During his speech, the president thanked his family for standing by his side and going through a “phony, rotten deal by some very evil and sick people.” He embraced Melania and she joined him up the podium for the remainder of his speech.
“I want to apologize to my family for having them have to go through a phony, rotten deal by some very evil and sick people, and Ivanka is here and my sons and my whole family,” Trump said. “And that includes Barron, that includes Barron, who is up there as a young boy.”
“I just want to thank my family for sticking through it. This was not part of the deal. I was going to run for president, and if I won, I was going to do a great job. I didn’t know that I was going to run, and then when I got in, I was going to have to run again and again and again, every week I had to run again,” Trump said. “That wasn’t the deal, but they stuck with me, and I’m so glad I did it because we are making progress and doing things for our great people that everybody said couldn’t be done.”
He recognized each of the lawmakers in attendance, spending most of his speech thanking and applauding GOP lawmakers who backed him both in the Capitol and on television. Among the guest included Republican senators who casted their votes to acquit him, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Trump defense team, Attorney General William Barr, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, and House Republicans who served as surrogates and advisers during the impeachment trial that included Reps. Doug Collins of Georgia, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mark Meadows of North Carolina, and Elise Stefanik of New York.
“We went through hell, unfairly. Did nothing wrong,” Trump said. “I’ve done things wrong in life, I will admit. Not purposely. But I’ve done things wrong. But this is what the end result is.”
After the victory speech, Melania held a black history month celebration with students from Cornerstone Schools in Washington D.C. The First Lady held a movie session with the students in the White House theater to watch “Hidden Figures,” an American biographical drama film based off a non-fiction book by Margot Lee Shetterly. The movie is about a black female mathematicians who worked at NASA during the Space Race. After the movie, Melania participated in a discussion session with Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture to talk about the “vital role African American women played in the NASA space program,” according to her Twitter caption.
