President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump made a big splash on New Year’s Eve when they arrived for their huge Mar-a-Lago bash on Sunday, December 31, in Palm Beach, Florida. As seen in the above photo, Mr. Trump donned a black tuxedo and Melania wore a shimmering dress that have folks talking on social media on New Year’s Day. As reported by the Daily Mail, Melania’s dress was a pink creation known as the Erdem “Emery” embroidered satin dress. On the Browns Fashion website, the dress is listed with a retail price of $5,503.15 but is currently on sale for $2,201.26, 60 percent off the normal prices as of this writing.
Melania’s embroidered dress was composed of 100 percent silk, with colorful pink paillettes and beaded floral arrangements throughout the bodice and beyond. Melania seemed to eschew the blue silk belt that normally accompanied the gown, preferring to keep the 1940s-style sleek line of the dress flowing over her tall silhouette. While the Daily Mail notes that Melania stole the show with her fashionable stance, the comments section of the article contains mixed reviews. At least one person commented that Melania allowed her dress to upstage her presence, while others are complimentary of Mrs. Trump’s style.
