Melania Trump sports stylish $1,140 Roland Mouret dress at Medal of Freedom ceremony with Donald Trump
The Presidential Medal of Freedom award is the nation's highest civilian honor presented to individuals who have made significant contributions to the United States of America
Melania Trump was quite a vision in an eye-catching blue dress while she attended the Medal of Freedom ceremony along with President Donald Trump at the White House on Friday.
The First Lady was seen holding hands with her husband as the couple made their way to the East Room. Trump then acknowledged and recognized seven 'extraordinary Americans' with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Melania was seen sporting a $1,140 blue dress by Roland Mouret and chose not to accessorize her neck and wrists.
Her dress showed off her slim physique and also featured a pencil skirt which ended at her knees. The back of the dress had a silver zipper which stopped mid-length and revealed a small slit. Melania chose to leave her brown hair loose and also sported a nude lip tone. She finished off the outfit with a pair of Christian Louboutin patent leather pumps.
As they entered the ceremony, Melania and Donald had small close-lipped smiles and held hands as they made their way to the East Room. Trump briefly stopped to wave to the attendees present. Melania was seen sitting in the front row of the ceremony as her husband took the stage.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest award given to an American civilian. Other attendees included the likes of Acting-Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson.
The President told the attendees, "The Presidential Medal of Freedom has been given to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to American life and culture. This year it is my true privilege to award this honor to seven extraordinary Americans."
One of the recipients was doctor and Republican Party donor Miriam Adelson, the wife of Las Vegas casino giant Sheldon Adelson. In the past, the couple has donated millions to Trump and the GOP. Donald Trump also acknowledged one of the longest-serving Republican senators in US history, Sen. Orrin Hatch.
The President also honored Elvis Presley, Babe Ruth, and Antonin Scalia, the conservative Supreme Court Justice. Trump shared, "Joining us for this ceremony is [Scalia's] wife, Maureen — who has become a great friend of my family, myself — and their nine children," before naming her children. "You were very busy, wow. Wow. I always knew I liked him," he added jokingly.
