Talk about a sparkler! Melania Trump, who was on hand in Washington, DC for the White House Association dinner Thursday night, made an appearance alongside President Trump in a Sequined Capelet Gown ($7,995) from Monique Lhuillier’s pre-fall 2017 collection.
Featuring a slinky light-colored slip beneath a beaded chiffon overlay, the look was one of the most glam we’ve seen FLOTUS wear since Trump took office back in January.
While it was less pricey than the $51,500 floral Dolce & Gabbana coat she donned overseas in Italy or the $10,000 Michael Kors suit she wore for President Trump’s Joint Session of Congress, its $8,000 price tag was nothing to sniff at.
It wasn’t the first time the First Lady has worn the designer, having been spotted in a pink floral frock from Lhuillier back in July for a rally in Youngstown, Ohio, as seen on the designer’s Twitter page, and again in June for the Ford Theatre Gala.
She paired her latest look with some long-loose waves and a muted pink lip as she spoke out about her recent visit flood zones to Texas post-hurricanes Harvey, saying, “We saw so many who lost so much in these past weeks: a family member, a friend, a first home, or a precious keepsake. But in those very same people, I have seen the true spirit of this nation, an unwavering commitment to overcome, to rebuild, and to renew what was swept away.”
