Melania Trump Is a Vision in White at the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

All eyes were on Melania Trump at the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony outside the White House on Wednesday evening. Among the many black and dark blue go-to color palettes people often tap for their winter wardrobes, our first lady was shining bright in white.

The former model, who makes wise fashion choices on all occasions, continued her stylish streak in a luxe-looking belted coat by Italian label Max Mara. Underneath, she had on a cozy matching turtleneck sweater that she accessorized with white gloves and a pair of suede taupe boots set on a stiletto heel.

President Trump’s children Tiffany, Eric and his wife Lara, and Donald Jr with his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, were also among the attendees.

Alongside Melania, the president delivered a speech to the crowd and later shared well-wishes to his followers on Instagram.
