Freshly sworn-in President Donald Trump’s first dance at the Liberty Ball with Melania Trump was to Frank Sinatra’s “My Way.” And for new first lady Melania Trump, it’s an apt statement on her style today in Washington, D.C.
Melania kicked up her white pointed-toe heels wearing a matching off-the-shoulder Hervé Pierre dress that she collaboratively designed. The stunning number featured asymmetric arc detail, a high slit up the front that flaunted her legs, and a red ribbon around her waist completed the sleek look.
“It’s an honor to dress the first lady,” Pierre told WWD. “I was actually lucky because over my 20 years in the U.S., I dressed all the first ladies: Mrs. Clinton at Oscar [de la Renta], Mrs. Bush and Mrs. Obama at Carolina Herrera. So I feel lucky and honored to dress Melania Trump, but this time under my name.”
Pierre added that Melania was well-versed in fashion. “She knows what she likes,” he said. “Our conversations were, and are, very easy. She knows about fashion, as a former model. She is aware about constructions, so we have already the same vocabulary when it comes to designing a dress.”
Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen Pence, joined them, as well as Donald’s children, including Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner. Ivanka wore a princess-style gown that incorporated sparkling treatments.
Among the guests at the soiree, Caitlyn Jenner cut an elegant figure in a one-shoulder navy dress and nude peep-toe heels. Comedian Tim Allen also took part in the fete, as well as the Radio City Rockettes.
Earlier in the day, the former model and mother to Barron, one of Donald Trump’s five children, chose a stunning pale blue cashmere double-faced Ralph Lauren coat when she stepped out for inauguration services. She teamed the chic look with a pair of matching heels.
Ahead of Inauguration Day, festivities were abound in her new city. On Thursday, she donned a gold custom sequined Reem Acra gown that was completed with a pair of nude pumps.
