Standing alongside President Donald Trump, Melania wore head-to-toe brown suede at the 72nd annual Thanksgiving turkey pardoning ceremony in the White House Rose Garden. For the occasion, the former model wore a double-breasted Burberry brown suede trench coat with matching knee-high brown suede slouch boots on tall block heels.

Of the many footwear styles that were sent down fall ’19 catwalks, slouch boots were popular, as well as monochrome brown dressing, which was seen in materials as varied as suede, cashmere, wool and stamped leather.

This year's candidates to be the National Thanksgiving Turkey were from North Carolina and named 'Bread' and 'Butter', weighing forty-five and forty-seven pounds respectively. Both turkeys will go to live at 'Gobbler's Rest' on the campus of Virginia Tech University.National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation at the White House, Washington, USA - 26 Nov 2019

The pardoning, a tradition now in its 30th year, turned into a family affair with Donald Trump’s youngest daughter, Tiffany, in attendance. Tiffany was clad in a light blue coat and watched the ceremony from the crowd as her father pardoned 47-pound Butter and 45-pound Bread; both turkeys will now both go to live at Gobbler’s Rest, a turkey sanctuary on the campus of Virginia Tech University.

Later, Melania and Donald’s son, Barron, joined them on their way to spend Thanksgiving in Florida.
