Melania Trump is without a doubt the most fashionable First Lady since Jackie Kennedy, whether you like or dislike her husband. When Melania Knauss married Donald Trump (who is 23 years older than her) in 2005, it gave her total freedom to buy whatever she wants. Melania has access to the world’s top fashion designers as well as a multitude of Hermes Birkin and Kelly handbags. However, some high-end designers are against styling Melania Trump since she is the Donald’s wife.
Even though she wasn’t the quintessential “supermodel” during her brief modeling career, her runway for 4 years was the world’s stage as she paraded her majestic 5’11’ body and sophisticated sense of style amid the world’s strongest leaders on the international stage as First Lady of the United States (2017-2021). We had witnessed how Melania’s fashion style had transformed throughout her stay in the White House, from her stunning cleavage displaying tight-fitting gowns to a more modest well-fitted attire as First Lady, when her husband was running in 2016. Melania Trump, maybe the most meticulous and occasionally controversial FLOTUS fashionista we’ve ever seen, puts a lot of care into what she wears for whichever function she chooses to be attending. Here are some of her most iconic dresses since becoming First Lady.

Melania wore an $4500 Valentino A-line maxi dress with ostrich feather trimmed three-quarter sleeves to accept the Spirit of Lincoln Gala. It is customary to for the Log Cabin Republicans to hold this event in Washington D.C. but they move it to Mar-a-Lago especially so Melania can come. When she accepted the award, Melania said: ‘As I look around the room, the word “courage” comes to mind. It is the courageous spirit within each of you that has brought us together this evening and it is the courageous spirit of Abraham Lincoln, which gives us our guiding light today.’

Melania steps out in a all black, halter top pantsuit for the America First Policy Institute fundraiser at her home, Mar-a-Lago. After months of shying away from the public, Melania have made a series of appearances in the past week. Perhaps she is ready again to be in the limelight once more?
