Melania Trump dazzles in lace dress as White House shares 'bizarre' photo to mark her 49th birthday
First Lady of the United States Melania Trump celebrated her 49th birthday on April 26.
To honor her special day, the social media account of the White House posted a photo of her sitting on a sofa while a horde of photographers surrounded her during a meeting in the Oval Office.
The image, which was taken early in March this year, showed the FLOTUS sitting alone on the sofa during President Donald Trump's meeting with Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis, InStyle reported.
However, many social media users questioned the choice of the photo being uploaded and said it 'bizarre' that she was alone, while many more turned the post into a now-viral meme.
This didn't seem to bother the birthday girl as she celebrated the special occasion with a dinner at the White House along with husband Donald Trump, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe.
Melania wore a gorgeous fitted white lace dress and a pair of red shoes for the dinner as she opted to go with the colors of the Japanese flag. The entire dress was covered in lace and was simple yet elegant for the occasion. She paired the dress with dark red, metallic pointed stilettos with nude polish on her nails. She stayed away from any extra accessories aside from some rings on her hands.
The FLOTUS wore her long brown hair in her trademark loose waves as she posed on the red carpet with the Abes and her husband, who was in his traditional navy suit and red tie. The group was extensively photographed at the entrance to the White House before their dinner together.
Express.co.uk reported that the POTUS told reporters present in the Oval Office on April 26 afternoon: "We’re celebrating our First Lady’s birthday. It’s her birthday. So I said to Melania: 'Would you like to have Mr. and Mrs. Prime Minister and Mrs. Abe join us for your birthday?'. And she said, 'I can’t think of anybody I’d rather have'."
