On July 7, Melania joined husband President Donald J Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for a “National Dialogue on Safely Reopening America’s Schools” event at the White House, for which she chose a geometric black and white midi dress. The color-blocking dress was complemented by 5-inch pointed-toe heels with a stiletto finish from Christian Louboutin. To finish the look, the mother-of-one opted for her signature style, which was comprised of smokey eyes, nude lips and blow-dried hair.

During the roundtable, the first lady emphasized on the holistic experience of school that children were missing out on during the pandemic. "When children are out of school, they're missing more than just time in the classroom," she said. "They're missing the laughter of their friends, learning from their teachers, and the joy of recess and play."

Her husband, on the other hand, vowed to exert pressure on states to reopen their school districts in the fall. "We're very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools," Trump said. "Get open in the fall. We want your schools open."

The color white has featured on FLOTUS' dresses for the past few events. On July 3, for an event in Mount Rushmore, celebrating Independence Day, she wore a black and white Alexander McQueen dress, for which he was trolled heavily. Melania was seen wearing a white sleeveless dress paired with a black belt, featuring a pattern with random lines all over. On noticing the first lady's attire for the evening, Internet users quickly took to Twitter to mock her. A majority of them used the opportunity to make fun of Trump, saying he is responsible for the lines on Melania’s dress.

One user joked, "Donald Trump got bored and drew all over Melania's white dress with a sharpie on Air Force One." Another took a dig at the first lady’s dress saying, “Apparently Trump tried to draw a hurricane path on Melania's dress." Another user expressed their disapproval of her dress saying, "What the f**k is up with Melania's dress? Looks like abstract drawings of nudes, or somebody let #Trump have possession of a Sharpie again."

Many of Trump supporters, however, stood up in defense of the first lady. "Social media made fun of Melania's dress last night saying president Trump scribbled on it with a marker. It is a dress designed by Alexander McQueen using sketches drawn by victims of child sexual abuse to describe their feelings. Our first lady is incredible," said a tweet. Posts like these started going viral on social media. However, the claim that the dress featured drawings by children who had been victims of sexual abuse is not true. The dress actually included sketches done by students during a life drawing class. It was developed by McQueen in collaboration with art students.

She redeemed herself with her Fourth of July dress after the outfit she wore to at a Mount Rushmore celebration. The sleeveless dress went a little below her knees while she accompanied her husband, President Donald Trump to the South Lawn. She completed the look with a red leather belt and a pair of white flats. She chose to leave her hair down to fall loosely over her shoulders and looked radiant at the event.
