First Lady Melania Trump put on a serious black suit on Thursday, October 5, amid talk of a serious “storm” by her husband. As described in the Associated Press description of the above photo, President Donald Trump positioned his body behind Melania, while the duo took a photo with senior military personnel and their spouses. President Trump stood in the State Dining Room of the White House with Melania as talk turned serious, and Trump called the moment with military folk the “calm before the storm,” as reported by the Daily Mail. It was a cryptic warning that had reporters and the general public alike wondering if President Trump was referring to some sort of storm that was an Iranian or ISIS crisis from a military perspective.
Meanwhile, Melania’s fashion choices were easier to decipher than the president’s warnings, issued with a smug smile. Instead of jockeying for position in the front of others, President Trump stepped back a bit, initially, as seen in the below photo. President Trump can be seen standing slightly behind Melania, and only later stepping to the forefront to give the thumbs-up sign. With the Trumps planning to host the group of military leaders and their spouses for a dinner in the Blue Room, Melania more than likely changed out of the serious black suit she wore to don another dinner dress – with Melania being one of the four women photographed below who chose to wear pants for the occasion, with all the other women in dresses or skirts.
Mealania recently won a lot of praise on social media for wearing “Timbs,” or Timberland boots, as reported by the Inquisitr. At least plenty of fashionistas gave Melania kudos for wearing the fashionable boots while others criticized Melania for focusing too much on optics. However, black has been Melania’s go-to color recently, with the sad and morose tragedies recently occurring in Las Vegas, Puerto Rico and beyond.
As seen in the above photo, President Trump stood slightly behind Melania in an image that captured a portrait of President Abraham Lincoln in the background, as the former president stared pensively whilst sitting in a red chair.
