The first lady arrived today at the White House to join her husband, President Donald Trump, in welcoming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara.
The mother to Barron, one of Donald’s five children, has remained in Trump Tower in the Big Apple while their youngster finishes school.
But for her return to the White House — her first time since last appearing at her husband’s inauguration in January — the big occasion was a hard one for her to break old habits, namely, rocking sky-high pumps.
The 46-year-old cut an elegant figure in a bespoke white cashmere jacket and skirt by Karl Lagerfeld, head designer and creative director at Chanel, Fendi, and founder of his namesake line.
Though her schedule was packed with day-long activities, the former model was undaunted and opted for nude suede heels that were 5 inches high.
She towered over her guest, Sara Netanyahu, who had on pink patent leather pumps with a 3-inch heel.
Most striking of all was her glamorous accessory — her 25-carat diamond engagement ring.
The women attended a conference with their husbands at the White House, along with Ivanka Trump, who was dressed for business in a chic slate gray coat over a black mini dress and knee-high boots.
After the political dialogue, Melania and Sara enjoyed an outing to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.
On Saturday, Melania repeated her outfit color palette of white dress and nude shoes — opting for flat Christian Louboutins — alongside Akie Abe, wife of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, as she took part in a tour of Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach, and expressed her passion for landscaping in a statement to CNN, adding that she plans to work in the White House garden when she relocates.
