President Donald Trump and wife Melania set out on a trip to Fort Myers, Fla. on Thursday morning, where they’ll be meeting with those impacted by Hurricane Irma. Taking off from the South Lawn of the White House in Marine One, FLOTUS wore a pair of Chanel cap-toe flats instead of “storm stilettos.” She paired the shoes with tapered khaki slacks and a black blazer. The first family boarded Marine One on Thursday morning in coordinated outfits.
Melania Trump wore a pink lace high-necked gown to a fundraiser on Wednesday night. The first lady has turned to the color pink on many occasions.
President Trump has been in office for 100 days now. He’s had his share of controversial moments, for sure, and many ups and downs. But first lady Melania Trump has been a constant winner in the style department. Stepping out in everything from peacoats and flowy blouses to sequined suits and elegant dresses, she has given us some stunning fashion moments. Here are the best looks from FLOTUS to commemorate the president’s first 100 days in office.
Less than a week in, and already Donald Trump’s marriage to First Lady Melania has been the topic of giddy stories and social media posts about the union’s possible implosion. Two instances have gone viral: the inauguration video snippet that has FLOTUS swapping her fake grin for look of misery as soon as her husband turns away, and the images of Trump exiting his car at the White House, rudely leaving Melania in the dust before the Obamas politely step in to welcome her.
What the new occupants of the White House wear in the first few days sets the tone for the next four years of their tenure. The tour kicked off with the traditional wreath-laying at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, with Melania donning a military-inspired coat. Norisol Ferrari, the daughter of a wounded warrior, designed the custom outerwear, meant to send a strong message of support to U.S. troops.
How does President-elect Donald Trump get his hair to look like that? It’s a question many have asked. And the artists at wax museum Madame Tussauds had to comb through that mystery in order to prepare four wax replicas of the 45th commander-in-chief, which were unveiled just before the inauguration.
Happy anniversary, Barack and Michelle Obama! The two have given us plenty of “aww-some” couple moments during their eight years in the White House, but their epic love story stretches back to 1989 when they went on their first date to Baskin-Robbins for ice cream and then to the Harper Theater in Chicago to watch Spike Lee’s “Do The Right Thing.” It was so adorable it even inspired a movie — “Southside With You.” To celebrate their 24th anniversary, we took a look back at 24 times the Obamas gave us major #couplegoals!
Michelle Obama will appear on the cover of two magazines in October as she prepares to leave the White House.
Yesterday, Barack Obama attended a baseball game with his family and Cuban President Raul Castro, opting for a casual look in a crisp white shirt and khaki pants — in stark contrast to the rest of his family, all wearing vibrant color and patterns. At the baseball outing — the first MLB exhibition game to be played in Cuba in nearly 20 years — Obama didn’t take off his Oliver Peoples sunglasses once (not even for interviewers). Despite the steep price tag, Obama looked great in his sunnies: The boxy acetate frames fit his face perfectly, and there wasn’t a flashy logo, which provided for a stylish, but not-too-trendy look.
In Hollywood circles, birthdays are kind of a big deal (even on non-milestone years). Kanye West surprised his wife, Kim Kardashian West, with a screening of Jobs; Olivier Rousteing invited his entire #BalmainArmy to celebrate in Los Angeles clad in clothes he designed; Russell Wilson got Beyoncé to dress up as Storm from X-Men for Ciara’s 30th; and just about everyone else flies to Las Vegas for an all-expenses paid party in their honor. But Katy Perry was more political for her big day — literally — by choosing to spend her 31st stumping in Iowa for Hillary Clinton. At a rally, the singer was introduced to the crowd by former President Bill Clinton before taking the stage.
Sure, Michelle Obama might dress in local designer duds wherever she travels, most recently wearing a multicolor knit Missoni dress in Italy, but it’s her daughters that truly capture the culture in their clothes choices. Sasha and Malia Obama landed in Milan on Wednesday with Sasha leading the way down the air-stairs in a sweet seersucker mini dress and cognac leather gladiator sandals. Her sister, on the other hand wore an illusion two-piece heather gray jersey dress with white Mary Janes. And while FLOTUS went off with Chef Mario Batali, who wore his signature orange crocs even in front of the first lady, to preach to Italians that maybe so many carbs and wine without at least a little exercise might not be the greatest lifestyle choice, the teenagers went off to explore the European city on their own (aka with secret service, paparazzi, and an entire posse of other people).
Photos: AP Images If Michelle Obama and Blake Lively are any indication, one outfit a day just isn’t enough anymore. On Tuesday, the first lady and her husband, President Barack Obama, welcomed Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe to the United States—in style (well, Michelle at least). For the first ceremony of the day, the 51-year-old (yes, she looks shockingly young) wore a watercolor ensemble from Filipino designer Monique Lhuillier. She paired the metallic-sheen ensemble with a similarly shiny low-slung silver heel. From the White House to Great Falls Elementary School in Great Falls, Virginia, Michelle changed into a Tadashi Shoji long-sleeved dress (maybe in the motorcade?). For the state dinner—whose guest list included George Takei, Russell Wilson and new girlfriend Ciara, and Shonda Rhimes with a meal prepared by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto—in honor of their guests, Michelle gave a nod to the foreign dignitaries by wearing a number, again from Tadashi Shoji, who hails from their country.
