Last year, Melania marked July 4 with a celebration at the Lincoln Memorial not wearing the red, white and blue tradition. Instead, she opted for a Carolina Herrera dress with multi-colored stripes and sky-high hot pink pumps from Christian Louboutin.

This year, the Trumps celebrated Independence Days with multiple events, including their Mount Rushmore appearance in South Dakota on July 3. There, Melania wore a $3,840 asymmetric Alexander McQueen dress that garnered many opinions on social media. She completed the ensemble with her go-to Louboutin black patent leather pumps.

The sleeveless, ivory linen, round-neck midi dress featured a Dancing Girls print that came from sketch designs made by students at Central Saint Martins in London. Twitter users likened the look to drawings and immediately mocked the spring ’20 look, saying Trump drew on it with a Sharpie marker.
