Melania Trump & Queen Letizia’s Outfits for Tea Have Subtle Messages

The fashion queen of the White House met the Queen of Spain today. First lady Melania Trump feted royal couple, King Felipe and Queen Letizia, alongside President Donald Trump, during their three-day tour of the U.S.

Both women selected elegant outfits for an afternoon talk over tea — both showing off their toned arms in sleeveless numbers teamed with pumps. As a bonus, the ensembles delivered subtle messages that supported designers of each other’s countries.

Melania opted for an earth-tone dress with brown, white and green hues from Valentino’s resort 2018 runway. The former model completed the dress with a small tribute to Spain, BB pumps by Spanish designer Manolo Blahnik.

Featuring a low-cut vamp and topline with pointy toes on a 4-inch stiletto heel, it’s one of the most flattering footwear silhouettes because it helps lengthen the appearance of legs. Blahnik created the classic pumps 10 years ago and described them as “a good shoe for every occasion.” Indeed.
