First Lady Melania Trump, along with the president, vice president, and second lady, hosted military families today at the White House in celebration of Fourth of July. As part of a longstanding tradition, select military families were treated to a picnic on the White House lawn. Tonight, the families will be treated to a fireworks display, according to One America News Network.
As usual, the first lady dressed the part. Melania Trump wore a royal blue dress that resembled closely to the shade of blue in the American Flag. The fit and flare dress came with thick straps, a scoop neck, and a thick, white border near the bottom. The dress also came with an asymmetrical hem, right on par with current trends.
Melania Trump paired the blue dress with a pair of white Christian Louboutins, which White House Wardrobe notes she wore earlier in the week. She opted to go jewelry-free today, something that she’s made a habit of as of late. As usual, Melania also stuck to her signature style of loose beach waves and an off-center middle part.
This particular blue dress is by designer Esteban Cortazar and retails for $1,477. This appears to be the first time that Melania Trump has worn this particular Cuban-born designer. In recent weeks, the first lady has donned designs by Adam Lippe, J. Mendel, and Roland Mouret.
