Melania Trump’s Snakeskin Pumps Add Texture to Her Business Casual Outfit at National PTA Conference

Melania Trump spoke to parents and legislators alike today in Alexandria, Va., at the 2020 National PTA Legislative Conference.

The first lady chose a business casual look in a plaid blazer cinched with a brown leather belt and flared khaki trousers.

On her feet, the former model slipped on pointed-toe snakeskin embossed pumps on a thin stiletto heel. When it comes to shoes, Trump is a fan of heeled styles, particularly Manolo Blahnik’s BB pumps, named after French midcentury style icon Brigitte Bardot, and Christian Louboutin’s So Kate silhouette.

The National PTA Legislative Conference brings together Parent Teacher Association representatives and leaders from across the United States. The theme of this year’s event is: PTA Takes Action for Kids. Trump was invited to discuss her Be Best initiative, which focuses on children’s well-being, online safety and opioid abuse prevention.

The first lady spoke about Be Best-related issues at the Department of Justice at its National Opioid Summit in Washington, D.C., on March 6. For this event, she recycled a custom Hervé Pierre dress with classic black pumps.
