Melania Trump was the showstopper at Kennedy Center event as she makes grand entrance in gorgeous blue caped-gown
Audiences at the cultural center welcomed the First Lady as she rocked a floor-length navy gown for the evening.
Melania Trump received a big round of applause upon arrival at the John F. Kennedy Center to celebrate the inauguration of its REACH expansion. Audiences at the cultural center welcomed the First Lady as she rocked a floor-length navy gown for the evening, Daily Mail reports. Melania also shared pictures from the event in a post on Friday, September 6. "Honored to join the Kennedy Center @Kencen last night in celebration of the grand opening of REACH," she wrote in the post. "This is an amazing investment in the arts and our next generation."
The stunning FLOTUS smiled at the crowds as she walked to her seat, with her hair styled in soft waves complemented with a bronzey makeup. Meanwhile, her flamboyant dress touched the ground and covered her heels. Melania — Honorary Chair to the Kennedy Center — also gave an opening speech before the event. In a press release following the event, the first lady described the opening event as "a momentous occasion for the arts."
"The Kennedy Center has always been a powerful tool to bring people together," she said. "This new addition will be so valuable to Washington D.C. and is so important to our community and to our nation as a whole," she continued. "I want to thank the Kennedy Center leadership and the generous supporters for inviting me to join them this evening and for the incredible work they are doing for our future generations." REACH — a new expansion of the Kennedy Center complex — is scheduled to open Saturday.
This was Melania's first fashionable appearance since she attended the G7 last month. During the summit, she appeared to be best friends with Brigitte Macron, the French President's wife, as the pair walked hand-in-hand at the Cote des Basques beach in Biarritz, France. At the time, she donned a white maxi dress with a patterned skirt and wore matching court shoes to complete the look. Meanwhile, Brigitte put on a casual display in her shirt dress.
Melania withdrew from the public eye after returning to Washington D.C. until her appearance at the Kennedy Center.
