First Lady Melania Trump alongside President Trump welcomed Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his wife, Mareva Grabowski-Mitsotakis, to the White House Tuesday afternoon.
Looking stylish for her first official photo op of 2020, Melania donned a black and white 1970s-inspired jumpsuit by Chanel. From the Spring/Summer 2018 collection, the jumpsuit was designed by the legendary Karl Lagerfeld. The classic tweed featured a wing collar with cropped wide-leg pants and the infamous Chanel logo on the buttons. It retailed for $2,695, but unfortunately this exact Chanel jumpsuit is sold out.
She paired the classic Chanel jumpsuit with a thick black belt and black suede over-the-knee boots from Christian Louboutin. The Tournoi suede boots retailed for $1,695, but unfortunately it is sold out.

Just like Melania, the Greek Prime Minister wife also rocked a sleek wide-leg jumpsuit. Mareva’s brown jumpsuit featured a long wide-leg pants that are cuffed at the hem. Over her jumpsuit, she wore a black wool coat that she kept on during the photo-op outside the South Portico of the White House.
As for the men, President Trump sported his signature navy suit with a red silk tie, while Prime Minister Mitsotakis wore a tailored navy suit and blue tie.
During the on-camera meeting before leaving for their bilateral meeting behind closed doors, President Trump praised Greece economy and “the comeback” the country is making following its eight year survival on bailout loans. Greece exited the program in 2018, but still remains under strict supervision from the International Monetary Fund and European partner lenders.
“Greece has made a tremendous comeback,” Trump said. “We’ve worked with them very closely. We’re very proud of Greece and the comeback that they’re making.”

Mitsotakis said Greece economy is doing extremely by noting how it is “following a recipe” that has worked in the United States, including lower taxes and deregulating.
“The Greek economy has done extremely well over the past months,” Mitsotakis said addressing Trump. “We have lowered taxes. We are deregulating. We’re following a recipe that has also worked here in the United States. And the economy is reacting very positively.”
He added that he will be looking for Trump’s support in calling on American companies to invest in Greece.
“We’ll also be looking to your support to convince American companies to invest more in Greece and help us grow the economy at a pace where people are really going to feel the difference.”
When asked about the Turkish provocations and its maritime agreement with Libya signed last month that divides the Aegean and Mediterranean seas, Mitsotakis noted it has “infringes upon Greece’s sovereign rights.”
“It is important to point out that the agreement signed between Turkey and Libya infringe upon Greece’s sovereign rights and essentially cause great concern and instability in a region which is already highly problematic,” Mitsotakis said, adding he is looking forward to Trump support.
Trump said he is discussing the issue with Turkish President Erdogan and many countries including Germany and Russia and have meetings set up to work out “some kind of a plan for peace.”
After the bilateral 2:2 meeting, both Melania and Mareva had lunch together in the parlor of the White House.

Just trying to show a more relaxed, less formal approach to an official meeting. Melania looks classy no matter what she wears.

Looks better than anything big a$$ Mike Obama wore. At least she doesn’t look like she just crawled out of a card board box. Obooma had that look down pat.

This beyond gorgeous woman has never put a foot wrong since becoming our First Lady. She is beautiful, classy, elegant, confident, and a real asset to President Trump and to our country.

Don’t like it myself. Think she could have done better. Usually looks great.

I agree. I would preferred a long skirt verses pant suit. But she is a class act and we are so luck she is in the First Lady.
