The cumulative worth of the first lady's ensemble totaled $2,222, with the jacket retailing at $1,000 and the green trousers from the same brand costing $995. To cover her feet, the mother-of-one donned "sensible" Timberland boots to complete the look.
The lavish six-inch yellow boots for women cost $227 a pair. That said, Melania's makeup was bronzed and bright with shiny pale pink lip gloss, while her eyes were ringed in dark eyeliner and mascara to add the final touch.
As the former Slovenian glamor model met with servicemen and women at the event, she smiled and laughed gracefully. This trip was fairly remarkable for both the president and the first lady as it was their first official trip to a war zone.
“President Trump and the First Lady traveled to Iraq late on Christmas night to visit with our troops and Senior Military leadership to thank them for their service, their success, and their sacrifice and to wish them a Merry Christmas," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted.
On Christmas Eve, the first lady wore a beautiful black dress as she accompanied her husband to attend a service at the National Cathedral in Washington. At first, Melania had planned to spend the Christmas holiday with husband Donald and son Barron at Mar-a-Lago in Florida. However, she traveled back on Monday to join her husband after he had to cancel the family trip owing to a government shutdown.
According to reports, Melania's Christmas did not involve presents. The commander-in-chief openly admitted he is not able to give his wife Christmas presents as he is a "bad present person."
During an appearance on Fox & Friends in April this year, President Trump said: "I got her a beautiful card. You know, I'm very busy to be running out looking for presents, okay?"
