Melania Trump Takes SpaceX Tour in a Scalloped Dress + Her Favorite Heels

Melania Trump enjoyed a tour of the SpaceX Demonstration Mission 2 Launch at Kennedy Space Center, in Cape Canaveral, Fla., alongside President Donald.

For the occasion, the first lady selected a dark blue midi dress featuring a striking white pattern and scalloped trim. She matched the white hue to Manolo Blahnik’s BB pump, which is one of her favorite silhouettes along with Christian Louboutin’s So Kate pumps.

It was a wise choice. After all, Blahnik himself called his BB pump “a good shoe for every occasion.” Introduced more than 10 years ago, the footwear was inspired by Brigitte Bardot, a French movie star. They feature a low-cut vamp and topline with pointed toes and a 4-inch stiletto heel. They cost around $625 at retailers like Nordstrom and go up in price depending on fabrications.

On Monday, her shoes looked quite similar and were teamed with a white coat-dress. She joined the president to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in honor of Memorial Day at Virginia’s Arlington National Cemetery.
