Melania Trump Lights the National Christmas Tree in Candy Cane Colors + Chic Prints

Melania Trump had one of the highest holiday honors last night: pressing the button to light the national Christmas tree. The first lady joined her husband, President Donald Trump, members of congress and festive fans at the seventh annual national Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Washington, D.C.

For the occasion, she embraced the holiday theme in a deep red coat featuring white plaid. The Gabriela Hearst Cassatt coat originally retailed for $4,000, but is now on sale for $1,960 on ModaOperandi.com.

This December has already been a busy month for Melania. Last Wednesday, she visited children in London at a Salvation Army center, where she helped them wrap presents. She wore a houndstooth coat with a pair of black pointed-toe pumps.
