First Lady Melania Trump was photographed in a bluish-purple coat dress and matching shoes that appeared to be Melania’s signature Christian Louboutin pumps with their iconic red-bottomed soles. President Donald Trump and Melania left the White House on Friday, November 3, departing on their 11-day trip to Asia, with a planned stop in Hawaii. As seen in the below photo, Melania took time to stop and take a selfie with a young blonde woman before Melania boarded Marine One with President Trump.
With the planned journey scheduled to feature stops in five countries, Melania and President Trump are in for a long trip. Melania wore sunglasses once again, even while posing for the selfie with the White House guest. According to the New York Post, President Trump and Melania were already on their way to Hawaii when the White House was placed on lockdown Friday morning. With reports of “suspicious activity” happening, at least one person was taken into custody in the wake of an incident that occurred near the White House North fenceline.
According to the U.S. Secret Service’s tweets, certain streets remain closed near the White House due to the melee. As reported by CBS News via the below tweet, journalists were commanded to leave the North Lawn of the White House.
As reported AOL, Melania wore Emilio Pucci, which appears bluish purple but is described on Pucci’s website as a “cobalt” blue color. The Italian-made coat dress is comprised of 90 percent virgin wool and 10 percent cashmere. The price tag that accompanies the coat is currently listed at $2,795. Sold in sizes 4, 6, 8 and 10, the designer coat dress is still available for sale.
Melania’s matching stilettos were of the same hue and complimented her belted coat dress.
The trip represents President Trump’s first journey to Asia as President of the U.S.
Melania and President Trump can be seen waving before boarding Air Force One in the following video. Although there has been plenty of buzz about the all-female team in Japan that will guard Melania, according to Quartz, the women will mainly be there for access and language translation instead of guarding the first lady.
