Stunning: She wore a picture perfect white skirt suit for the occasion, and enthusiastically greeted both of her guests with kisses on the cheek

( Daily Mail ) First Lady Melania Trump headed down to the nation’s capital on Wednesday, where she joined her husband in welcoming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara to the White House.

It marked the first official appearance Melania has made since her husband was sworn into office almost one month ago on January 20, with the 46-year-old mother choosing to stay in New York City with her son Barron rather than join President Trump in the White House.

The First Lady stood alongside her husband outside the South Portico of the White House to welcome the Netanyahus at noon.

Melania greeted her guests with a kiss and the group exchanged pleasantries while posing for some photos before going inside for the President and Prime Minister’s news conference.

Once inside, Melania sat next to Ivanka, who attended the early afternoon event with her husband, Jared Kushner.
