The ex-model wore her hair down and accessorized with a pair of diamond earrings.

Earlier this week, Trump was joined by students from Washington’s Cornerstone Schools for a movie session in the White House theater. The event was held in honor of Black History Month. For the occasion, Trump was clad in a $1,290 black and white polka dot Gabriela Hearst blouse, a black $1,395 Michael Kors blazer and a matching black pencil skirt. On her feet, she wore one of her favorite brands of footwear: Christian Louboutin. The former model donned a pair of nude So Kate pumps, a pointed-toe style with a patent finish and a nearly 5-inch heel, available at Neiman Marcus for $695.

The So Kate is one of Trump’s favorite shoe styles. She is additionally a big fan of Manolo Blahnik’s BB, another pointed-toe, stiletto-heeled pump. Trump has also worn shoes from high-end labels such as Victoria Beckham, Gianvito Rossi and Roger Vivier, as well as more accessibly priced styles from Adidas and Zara.
