President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump revealed their first official White House Christmas portrait. The picture was uploaded to FLOTUS' Instagram account on Tuesday. 

In the picture, Melania and Donald are seen holding hands as they pose in the Cross Hall of the White House which has been decorated with Christmas trees and red ball ornaments. 48-year-old Melania looked absolutely stunning in a white sequin Celine gown which she had paired with pointed toe stilettos. 



 

Melania's dress was form-fitting and had long sleeves, a mock turtleneck, and a hemline which stopped just above her ankles. She styled her hair to fall in loose waves around her shoulders. The president, on the other hand, sported a classic black tuxedo and smiled as he stood alongside his wife. The picture was uploaded along with the caption, "Merry Christmas from President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump."



 

The White House released two official holiday portraits and the second one was a close up of the full-length picture which was also shared on Melania's Instagram page. The second portrait features the couple smiling against the beautiful and festive background. The pair decided to pose in front of the traditional Christmas trees as opposed to the red cranberry trees. The red cranberry trees were trolled and mocked when this year's White House Christmas decorations were unveiled. Many people called the trees "creepy" and compared them to red handmaids dresses. 



 

During a recent interview, FLOTUS defended her decision to have the red trees and shared that she is a fan. She also added that the trees were all a part of her 'American treasures' holiday decor. She shared, "We are in the 21st century and everyone has different tastes, but I think they look fantastic. I hope everyone will come over and visit it. In real life, they look even more beautiful."

The picture was clicked by White House photographer Andrea Hanks during the Congressional ball which took place in the grand foyer of the White House last Sunday. Melania was seen at her husband's side as they made a grand entrance while the band played the tune ' Hail to the Chief'.
