Melania Trump stuns in white Dior pantsuit as she joins president at Medal of Freedom ceremony, week after 9/11 dress fiasco
Careful not to steal the limelight with any flashy gowns, Melania decided to keep her look simple and opted for a custom-made suit - similar to the one she wore to the State of the Union in 2018.
All eyes were on first lady Melania Trump as she turned up for the Medal of Freedom ceremony at the White House on September 16, wearing an extremely stylish white pantsuit.
She made her way to the East Room of the White House to join her husband, President Donald Trump, as he honored retired baseball star Mariano Rivera with the prestigious medal of freedom. Careful not to steal the limelight with any flashy gowns, Melania decided to keep her look simple and opted for a custom-made Dior suit - similar to the one she wore to the State of the Union in 2018 - pairing it with a nude sweater and a pair of pale pink high-heels.
The cropped style of her wide-legged pants reflected her distinct sense of style. Her brunette brown hair hung loosely around her face and shoulders - a hairdo that has now become part of her signature look - and perfectly complemented her smokey eyes.
A slick of pale pink lipstick and French tips completed her look.
Although the 49-year-old mother-of-one looked somber as she made her way into the East Room, her mood appeared to lighten as she mingled with the guests and slipped into her role of the hostess. She was seen cracking a smile as she engaged in conversation with the attendees.
Melania did not take the podium during the ceremony, supporting her husband and the guest of honor from the crowd. During his speech, Trump praised Mariano for becoming the only Major League player to be elected to the Hall of Fame with unanimous support.
"Just out of curiosity, Babe Ruth was not unanimously elected?" Trump said. "The Babe didn't make it? What was his problem? He did pretty good too!"
Melania recently came under fire for the custom Herve Pierre jacket she was seen wearing in a 9/11 commemoration picture tweeted out by the POTUS as many critics said it had a design on the back that looked like a plane crashing into a skyscraper.
