Melania Trump made a surprising shoe choice for a state dinner tonight at Rashtrapati Bhavan, the president’s official residence in New Delhi, India.
But first, the dress. It wasn’t unexpected since it came from Carolina Herrera, one of her go-to labels. The gown was fabricated from silk crepe with a tie neck and long sleeves; it retailed for $2,990 but is now marked down on Theoutnet.com to $1,285.
While high heels are a staple for evening wear, Trump didn’t chose her signature stilettos tonight. She, instead, opted for a pair of delicate hot pink flats, which featured white star-shaped embroidery throughout and ribbon trim at the topline. The shoes had a low-cut vamp, a feature that seems to extend the length of the leg. The style is Aquazzura’s Bliss ballet flat, which is sold out but previously sold for $735.
The first lady and President Donald Trump attended the dinner as guests of Indian President Ram Nath Kovind and his wife, Savita Kovind. Both men were clad in dark suits, while the Indian first lady wore a purple and green floor-length sari that hid her footwear.
Earlier in the day, Trump wore a different Carolina Herrera outfit, choosing a springlike shirtdress. She paired the dress with Manolo Blahnik BB pumps.
In addition to the BB pump, Trump is also a big fan of the Christian Louboutin So Kate stiletto. Other brands she has worn include Gianvito Rossi, Adidas and Timberland.
