Melania Trump was chic in white lace as she rang in her 49th birthday.
Alongside President Donald Trump, Melania was photographed welcoming the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, and first lady, Aike Abe, to the White House in Washington, D.C. on Friday.
The former model looked stylish in the lacy dress, which featured short sleeves and a form-fitting silhouette.
For footwear, the first lady reached for red pointy-toed pumps with a metallic finish.
Meanwhile, the president and prime minister sported businesslike navy suits.
Aike had on a long-sleeved blue and white patterned dress with low-heeled pumps. She accessorized with a strand of pearls and pearl-studded earrings.
The White House tweeted a throwback image of Melania to commemorate her special occasion, sharing a photo of the first lady perched on a couch as photographers swarm around her.
In the throwback shot, the style maven sports a green Alexa Chung coat-dress with suedelike Christian Louboutin “So Kate” pumps — one of her go-to shoe silhouettes.
Louboutin’s Pigalle Follies are another wardrobe staple of the heel-loving first lady’s, with Manolo Blahnik’s BB pumps also constituting a significant chunk of her shoe closet. Melania is a big fan of soaring stilettos, although she will occasionally step out in ballet flats or even heels.
After posing for photos, the Japanese and American first families celebrated Melania’s birthday with a dinner.
