Melania Trump looks stylish in peacoat and cigarette pants as she brings Christmas joy at 'Toys for Tots' event
First Lady Melania Trump attended the annual United States Marine “Toys for Tots” event at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, bringing the Christmas spirit and joy to less fortunate children.
The wife of President Donald Trump couldn't help but smile as she warmed up to children while distributing toys among them. Melania wore a preppy peacoat resembling designs by top-notch American brands Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren. She coupled it with an ivory Ralph Lauren turtleneck sweater to match her ivory cigarette pants, Breitbart News reports.
The former Slovenian supermodel completed the look with a set of statement stiletto heels, which was coated in multi-color checkered uppers with hints of Christmassy red and green tastefully mixed in. That said, the pair came from one of the First Lady's go-to brands for footwear, Manolo Blahnik. The heels, titled the brand's BB pump silhouette, featured a classic pointed-toe design as inspired by French style icon Brigitte Bardot. Fixed over a four-inch heel, the marvelous pumps retail for $695 - albeit the pair flaunted by Melania has since sold out, Yahoo News reported.
“@ToysForTots_USA has taught American’s that kindness & the act of giving is a timeless & can be done at any age. Thank you to the @USMC & @JBABdc for hosting another wonderful toy drive & making sure every child has a present to open on #Christmas morning,” the FLOTUS wrote on Instagram Wednesday.
The first lady is known to often prefer styles from two prominent brands when it comes to heels. These include Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin. Aside from her rare Manolo BB pumps, Melania also favors the stunning Louboutin So Kate design, which comes with a 5-inch heel and is priced at nearly $725 at Net-a-Porter.
However, when not in the mood for heels, the First Lady goes for a number of flatter styles -- including her pair from Roger Vivier and another of shorter heels from Dior. That said, her designer footwear includes hot pieces from Ralph Lauren and Gucci, as well as custom designs from her personal stylist, Herve Pierre, former creative director for Carolina Herrera, according to Yahoo news.
Many are wondering how the first lady will spend her post-White House days. It is highly unlikely that she will immerse herself in writing a memoir as former first ladies have done, including bestsellers like Michelle Obama's memoir, 'Becoming,' and Laura Bush's memoir, 'Spoken from the Heart.' However, a source in the publishing industry familiar with preliminary discussions, said that Melania was toying with the idea of "writing a photo-centric coffee table book about White House hospitality history, or one perhaps centered on the design projects she has completed as First Lady."
"Mrs. Trump is focused on her role as First Lady. Monday she unveiled her most current effort in preserving the White House by announcing the completion of the tennis pavilion. She also recently unveiled a new piece of art in the newly renovated Rose Garden. Her office just revealed this year's Christmas décor. Her schedule remains full with her duties as a mother, wife, and First Lady of the United States," Melania's chief of staff Stephanie Grisham told CNN.
