President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump waved upon leaving Tel Aviv, Israel, on Tuesday, May 23. As seen above, Melania chose a white dress to wear to the Ben Gurion Airport as the duo departed. According to White House Wardrobe, it wasn’t just any old white dress, but a Roksanda Tatum dress that Melania chose to wear, one that comes with a $2,730 price tag.
Net-a-Porter describes Melania’s dress as one a modern bride would wear to her city wedding. Therefore, unlike the floor-length wedding gowns worn by more traditional brides, Melania’s dress is an ivory “cady” wedding dress replete with white tulle and cream hammered-crepe that could be used as a selection for brides who don’t want long trains dragging behind them on their wedding day. With a concealed hook and zip fastening at the back, the dress is mostly polyester, with 5 percent silk, 20 percent wool, 10 percent viscose, and another 5 percent elastane thrown in for good measure.
“Roksanda’s ‘Tatum’ midi dress is the perfect choice for modern brides and city weddings. It’s cut from mid-weight ivory cady that holds its shape beautifully and falls in full, fluted pleats. The hammered-crepe panels and gossamer tulle trims at the neckline add to the rich texture of this piece.”

Perhaps, since Melania wore the dress, that could be the reason for the “low stock” in some sizes currently displayed on the Net-a-Porter website. The dry-clean only dress comes with a comfy-sounding 100 percent silk lining, and although Net-a-Porter paired it with Jimmy Choo Pumps on their model, another pair of shoes that Melania wore is getting a buzz.
The striped tiger-like shoes worn by First Lady Melania captured the attention of photographer Giuseppe Cacace enough for him to make them part of the Getty Images gallery as Melania paid a visit to the American International School in the Saudi capital of Riyadh on May 21.
White House Wardrobe noted the confirmation that came from “Team Manolo Blahnik” stating that Melania did indeed wear Manolo Blahnik “BB” pumps, which are named after Brigitte Bardot, during Melania’s tour of the Middle East. As stated in the message, there were no readily available images of the style of BB shoes that Melania wore. However, taking a gander through the BB collection of shoes on the Manolo Blahnik website gives fashion hounds an idea of the price of similar shoes.
The full measure of the cut of Melania’s dress can be seen in photos like the one below, during a ceremony that took place on Tuesday, May 23, in Jerusalem. The fact that Melania once again went sleeveless was noted by some social media users.
