Melania Trump steals the show in chic black dress during D-Day celebrations in France
President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania were joined by French President Emanuel Macron and his wife at the American Cemetery in Normandy on Thursday
First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump, stole the show as she stepped out in a pared-back look with her President husband Donald Trump as the duo jetted from Shannon, Ireland to France for D-Day commemorations.
The First Lady kept it simple in a knee-length black buttoned coat teamed with black high heels and oversized sunglasses for their trip to Normandy.
Melania's fit and flare coat featured four black buttons and, while she kept it closed at Shannon, the flared style gave glimpses of a black knee-length dress underneath.
The 49-year-old's black stilettos, which she teamed up with the chic dress, had a large silver buckle at the front.
The FLOTUS' hair and make-up was kept simple, with her hair styled in a straight blow-dry.
The First Couple was accompanied by Trump's sons Eric and Don Jr. as they departed Shannon earlier in the morning on June 6. They had pulled pints of Guinness in a Doonbeg pub last night with Donald Jr declaring to punters: "This is better than New York."
According to The Sun, Melania garnered praise for her effortless looks earlier this week during the couple's UK state visit, even earning the title of "First Lady of Fashion".
Fashion expert Tracey Lea Sayer said: "Melania has worn a range of designers from Burberry to Celine and Dior and seems to have tailored her wardrobe perfectly for the event."
"One thing that has struck me is that she has very similar fashion taste to the Duchess of Sussex. Both ladies like a clean line and a minimal ‘American’ style look," she added.
As per reports, the US President traveled to Normandy on Thursday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day which was the turning point in World War II and pay tribute to American and Allied forces who led the invasion of Nazi-occupied France.
"You are among the very greatest Americans who will ever live. You are the pride of our nation. You are the glory of our republic. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts," the president said, addressing the over 60 veterans in attendance who fought in the battle.
The president and first lady were joined at the commemoration by French President Emanuel Macron and his wife at the American Cemetery in Normandy where 9,380 American service members lay in final rest.
Marcon offered his country’s heartfelt thanks for the sacrifices of Allied partners in liberating France, saying, "France has not forgotten those fighters to whom we owe the right to live in freedom."
"On behalf of France, I bow down before their bravery, I bow down before their immense sacrifice of those killed and those missing, who died as heroes in Normandy between June and August 1944 and who for many were to rest there for eternity," said Macron, turning to the remaining veterans and adding: "On behalf of my country, I just want to say, thank you," Macron added.
