Melania Trump paid tribute to France today in a noticeable way to observers of her style — she did it with her shoes. Joining President Donald Trump, the first lady recognized the 75th anniversary of D-Day at the Normandy American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, Normandy, France.
For such a somber occasion, the former model played it safe by selecting a modest outfit in head-to-toe black. Vivier’s shoes featured a curved heel, that looked around 4 inches high, and the luxury brand’s signature metal buckle at the toe. She completed the look with large dark sunglasses and a matching Dior coat dress that cut below the knee. A similar style set on a shorter heel retails for $695.
Her counterpart, Brigitte Macron, the wife of French President Emmanuel, made an opposite style statement by choosing a white coat over a white cocktail dress with pumps by her go-to brand, Louis Vuitton. The shoes feature a pointy profile on a straight 4-inch heel.
Yesterday, Melania participated in another D-Day event in Portsmouth, England.
