Melania Trump Shows How Not to Slip in the Rain While Wearing Sky-High Stilettos

Melania Trump looked nearly vertical today in high heels that had a design treatment not often seen on her feet. And the rare departure from her beloved solid or graphic print pumps came with flattering effects that she might want to repeat.

Our first lady left the White House to travel to Huntington, W.Va., for a roundtable on the opioid epidemic at Cabell-Huntington Health Center. As part of her Be Best initiative, combating drug abuse is one of her objectives.

While walking to board her flight at Andrews Air Force Base, she masterfully avoided slipping in the rain while clad in soaring stilettos by Manolo Blahnik. The suede rust-colored shoes featured a smooth-leather cap toe.

Featuring a pointed-toe silhouette, a low-cut vamp and topline on a 4-inch stiletto heel, the pump’s cap toe helped to draw the eye toward the bottom of her body, adding to the illusion of extra height that balanced the length of her denim midi dress by Lafayette 148 New York. The brown belt and dark accents on the dress were an apt complement to the shoes.

After the roundtable, Melania went to Ritter Park to see flags that represent children in the foster system, many there as a result of the opioid crisis. For the visit itself, she chose practical nude Christian Louboutin. The luxury brand’s Solasofia ballerinas retail for around $595, but they are currently sold out on Bergdorfgoodman.com.

The wife of President Donald Trump returned to the White House Sunday after a weekend in New Jersey wearing Louboutin. The former model had on a white short-sleeve collared frock cinched at the waist with a matching belt. She styled the mid-length dress with a pair of pointed nude pumps.
