With all large ceremonies canceled due to social distancing protocols, yesterday, the White House did its part to honor the Class of 2020 by hosting a small group of graduates to celebrate this achievement. In an Instagram post, Melania Trump left all of the nation’s graduates with a short, encouraging message. “Keep chasing your dreams & striving to be your best self!”
For the small gathering, the first lady addressed the graduates in an outfit suited for the occasion. She opted for a sleeveless, midi-length dress in a toasted champagne color with a visible sheen. As for footwear, the former model paired the simple ensemble with vibrant yellow stiletto pumps. The shoes featured a classic pointed toe and skinny heel. Over the years, we’ve seen that her go-to uniform for public appearances combines a balance of classic cuts and bright accent pieces. From previous sightings, it is clear that colorful statement heels are a staple in Trump’s wardrobe.
Last week, on May 19, she wore a pair of neon orange snakeskin Manolo Blahnik BB pumps, one of her favorite footwear styles, to honor pandemic responders, including a local Girl Scout Troop and an NYPD officer. Earlier this month, on May 8, Melania chose a pair of bright red pumps to celebrate the second anniversary of her Be Best Initiative and attend a zoom call with a class of first graders.
