The event was the opening of the Bunny Mellon Healing Garden, which was designed as a space outdoors where children who are patients at the medical center can spend time with their family members and breathe in the fresh air while they are being treated at the hospital.

The Bunny Mellon Healing Garden was dedicated to first ladies.

A fuller view of the white dress can be seen in the below and above photos, with the intricate and feminine details of the dress made evident.

The Details of Melania’s Dress

Melania was photographed in the white dress when she was the central focus of the “Blessing of the Garden,” which was the name of the event. With a temperature close to 84 degrees in Washington, D.C., on Friday, the Giambattista Valli dress seemed the perfect dress for Melania to wear for the warmer temperatures, as the dress’ description describes.

The eyelet finish provides cooling holes in the lightweight cotton fabric. Melania’s knee-length dress had a frilly hem, as seen in the above photo as Mrs. Trump stood at the see-through podium in the partially-lined dress. With a back zip closure, the white eyelet A-line dress was sleeveless, and seemed appropriate for a function involving children. In the past, some on social media have complimented and criticized Melania for some of her fashion choices, which some have deemed too sexy or fancy for other events.

The white dress was composed of 80 percent cotton and 20 percent polyester, and was made in Italy.

As seen in the below photo, Melania may have paired the white dress with Christian Louboutin “So Kate” 120 patent leather pumps, with the narrow toe box on the pumps. Melania’s may have been the Christian Louboutin “So Kate” 120 Lea Nude Blush pumps, which Tradesy calls super rare and are the colors of the nude collection, which quickly sold out and aren’t for sale any longer.

“Wait …I thought all those Republicans thought it was ‘shameful’ for to wear a dress w/o sleeves…oh, wait Melania is white…”
