Melania Trump unveiled the newest piece of art in the Rose Garden at the White House over the weekend.

The first lady took to Instagram to share the news and to give a first look at the installment of Isamu Noguchi’s Floor Frame sculpture. For the unveiling, Melania tucked a black scoop-neck top into a maxi-length black and white printed skirt, cinched together with a leather belt.

“We unveiled Isamu Noguchi’s Floor Frame sculpture in the Rose Garden @WhiteHouse yesterday. The art piece is humble in scale, complements the authority of the Oval Office, & represents the important contributions of Asian American artists,” read the caption of the first lady’s post.

As for footwear, the former model traded out her typical heeled styles for a flatter option courtesy of one of her go-to brands, Roger Viver. Melania modeled the brand’s Belle Vivier Graphic flats, a white, square-toe style with a ballet flat-inspired silhouette and a contrasting black trim. Set atop a mini block base, the patent leather pair comes with an $895 price tag at Net-a-Porter.
