First Lady Melania Trump spent the last day at the NATO summit joining British school children and U.S. Embassy Marines at the Salvation Army Centre in East London wrapping Christmas gifts.
For the visit, Melania wore a black and white houndstooth checked coat by Alexander McQueen. The Houndstooth print coat was the signature look of the Pre-FW19 lookbook. It features lightly padded shoulders and is tailored to cinched at the waist to create a signature hourglass silhouette. The exact checked print wool coat Melania wore isn’t available to purchase, but the exact tailored coat style with different houndstooth detail is available and on sale for $1,516 at MatchesFashion.com.
Keeping her coat closed, Melania completed her look with a pair of black patent leather pumps from Manolo Blahnik. The BB 105mm leather pumps retails for $665 and is available for purchase at Neiman Marcus.
During her 45 minute visit, Melania joined a table of about 30 fifth graders children from the Baden Powell Schoo in making Christmas wreath, while chatting with the children for most of the time. She was accompanied by Suzanne Johnson, wife of the U.S. Ambassador to the UK Woody Johnson. One of the school girls had decorated Christmas cookies and gave them to her.
The school kids also sang to the First Lady, choosing the infamous Mariah Carey’s Christmas song, ‘All I want for Christmas Is You.’ After the song, the first lady gave each of the children an ornament with her Be Best logo on it. ‘Thank you,’ the children called out in return.
Melania joined Embassy Marines in putting some of the gifts into gift bags to be given to local families, including books, a teddy bear along with a frisbee, a soccer ball, and caps – all bearing the ‘Be Best’ logo.
