Melania Trump Plants a Tree in India in Soaring Stilettos & Springlike Florals

Melania Trump is all about her stilettos.

The first lady stuck with her signature soaring heels during her second day in India for a two-day state visit. Today, she chose one of her go-to styles, Manolo Blahnik’s BB pumps.

Trump sported a springlike floral Carolina Herrera shirt dress, which she cinched at the waist with a bold red belt. The dress is made of white cotton with floral embroidery throughout; it has a classic button-down collar, long sleeves and front-buttons. Farfetch.com stocks the dress for just under $1,700.

The silhouette boasts a 4.1-inch stiletto heel, a leg-elongating low-cut vamp and a pointed toe. The white colorway chosen by Trump today can be purchased on Bergdorfgoodman.com for $665.

The first lady is known for her love of high heels, and she even wore her sky-high pumps to dig a hole and plant a tree. The tree planting ceremony took place at a Mahatma Gandhi memorial in New Delhi, India.
