Melania Trump Steals the Spotlight in Glamorous $7,124 Red Sequined Gown
Melania Trump, 49, turned heads in a glamorous red Givenchy gown during dinner with the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall.
Tuesday’s state visit ended with a dinner at the Winfield House, the second-largest private estate next to Buckingham Palace, with President Donald Trump, Melania Trump, and the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall.
Best you believe the first lady didn’t treat the dinner just as another event; it was a chance for her to get up and glam up with another outfit that resonates the fashionista and model in her.
DRESSED TO KILL
In a fiery red gown by Givenchy, Melania beamed and stood out in photos, standing next to her husband. The floor-length dress, priced at $7,124, had beads embroidered and long cape-like sleeves that have slits on the front.
The 49-year-old paired her gown with diamond stud earrings and had her hair down for the evening. Although her shoes could not be seen, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if they were another pair of Christian Louboutin pumps.
THE SECOND BANQUET
The celebration was the second banquet after the lavish dinner, hosted by the Queen, was held in the ballroom of the Buckingham Palace the night before. Six round tables seating ten people each were laid out for the guests. Although no speeches were made, both Prince Charles and Trump toasted to the celebration.
“To her Majesty, the Queen, and their Royal Highnesses, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall,” Trump toasted, while Charles said: “Ladies and Gentlemen, please would you join me in toasting the president of the United States of America and Mrs. Trump.”
Chef’s of the estate prepared a scrumptious dinner for the guests serving fresh seasoned burrata cheese, grilled beef fillet with pommes Anna, watercress puree, celeriac, and chantenay carrots. For dessert, they had summer berries with vanilla ice cream and Muscovado sugar tuile.
LONDON AS A RUNWAY
During the rest of their trip, Melania made sure to lay out her best outfits, treating London like a runway with her elegant sense of style, fit for a first lady. The first banquet hosted by the Queen had the first lady dressed in a majestic white floor-length Dior couture gown.
Her dress debuted at the Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris at the beginning of the year and was paired with white gloves, adding formality to her choice of clothing.
The former model also wore a shade of white during the D-Day celebration, rocking a pristine cream coat by The Row paired with a white hat. Similarly, Theresa May chose the same cream hat during the event.
