First Lady Melania Trump joined her husband President Donald Trump Thursday for a meeting with the Argentine President Mauricio Macria and his wife at the White House.
The first lady has been known for her choice of elegant yet simple designer dresses; however she chose to stand out on Thursday donning a military-inspired olive green ensemble. She wore an army green colored skirt with a matching peplum-style blazer from Altuzarra’s Spring 2017 collection.
The designer’s gabardine military jacket had python-print piping on its seam and the jacket solely costs $2,995. While the matching skirt tailored with asymmetrical buttons added another $1,120 to the total price of the $4,115 ensemble.
Melania matched her edgy outfit with a pair of python Manolo Blahnik BB pumps which costs around $595 per pair. Her shoes perfectly matched with the piping of her designer ensemble.
Even when Melania opted for a more edgy than her patent simple style for the meeting, she sported her trademark hairstyle- her caramel colored hair fell in loose waves over her shoulders.
The U.S. first lady recently celebrated her 47th birthday on April 26 in Washington D.C. Melania attended the Senate spouses luncheon at the National Gallery of Art sporting a navy coatdress paired with a brown belt. The dress was possibly made out of alligator skin. She donned her trademark hairstyle.
On Thursday, during the meeting, in contrast to Melania, the first Lady of Argentina was seen in monochrome attire, wearing a red pencil dress featuring a peplum design around the waist.
Juliana, the first lady of Argentina matched her dress with a patent red leather clutch and red leather pumps by Aquazzura, which is sold at a price of $695.
Surprisingly, Aquazzura, the designer brand has been currently involved in a legal battle with Trump’s eldest daughter Ivanka Trump, as the high-end brand accused the first daughter of ripping off a number of its designs for her own fashion brand.
Both the presidents wore navy suits for their meeting, however Trump decided to leave his jacket unbuttoned in order to showcase his long striped tie.
The Argentinian president and his wife were treated royally up on their arrival to the White House. A red carpet and a military honor guard were placed at the gates as their motorcade entered through the driveway at the White House’s South Lawn entrance. The first ladies posed with their husbands for photos after their initial introductions.
Trump described Macri as “my good friend for many, many years.” “We’re just going to be great friends, better than ever before,” Trump said speaking of his expectations as far as his relations with Argentina were concerned.
During their meeting, Argentine journalists at the White House asked about the ban on lemon imports. Argentina has been known as one of the world’s topmost lemon producers. Recently, the Trump administration delayed a decision by former President Barack Obama, which asked to lift a 16-year ban on imports of Argentine lemons.
“I think we’re going to be very favorably disposed,” Trump joked about their meeting: “I’ll tell him about North Korea and he’ll tell me about lemons,” he said
